Innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) are increasingly appreciated as key regulators of tissue immunity. However, their role in human tissue homeostasis and disease remains to be fully elucidated. Here we characterize the ILCs in human skin from healthy individuals and from the inflammatory skin disease psoriasis. We show that a substantial proportion of IL-17A and(More)
Service-learning enables computer science and engineering students to apply and refine their technical skills, learn new soft skills, and make a contribution to their community. At the University of South Florida we have organized a group of computer science and engineering students, called the CSE Volunteers, to provide IT support to the Hillsborough(More)
1 1 The use of Gnutella, Ditella, or any other product described herein does not represent its endorsement by the US Federal Government. Abstract In many applications – including peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing, content distribution networks, and grid computing – a single object will be searched for in multiple servers. In this paper, we find the provably(More)
Psoriasis is an immune-mediated disease characterised by chronically elevated pro-inflammatory cytokine levels, leading to aberrant keratinocyte proliferation and differentiation. Although certain clinical phenotypes, such as plaque psoriasis, are well defined, it is currently unclear whether there are molecular subtypes that might impact on prognosis or(More)
Specific neuronal spatial distributional patterns have previously been correlated with increasing severity of HIV-associated dementia (HAD). As astrocytes are also a putative site of neurotoxicity, we investigated the spatial relationships of astrocytes with pyramidal and interneurons in the superior frontal gyrus from 29 patients who died from acquired(More)
Inflammation is likely a key contributor to the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD), a progressively debilitating neurodegenerative disease that is accompanied by a pathological accumulation of the α-synuclein protein in a staged manner through the brain. What leads to the accumulation of α-synuclein in PD and how this relates to inflammatory pathways,(More)
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks based on Gnutella locate files by flooding the network with query messages (a flooding query search). In this paper, a new P2P search paradigm is presented. The network is flooded with the list of shared files and corresponding updates instead of by queries. Novel P2P applications such as power management and ethical file sharing(More)
