A nontemplated method for controlling the aggregation in near-infrared (NIR) cyanine-based nanoparticles derived from a group of uniform materials based on organic salts (GUMBOS) is reported.
Changing the Culture of Science Education at Research Universities
Universities must better recognize, reward, and support the efforts of researchers who are also excellent and dedicated teachers. Professors have two primary charges: generate new knowledge and…

It was observed that TQ-loaded nanoparticles emulsified with poly-SUV were more effective than free TQ against MDA-MB-231 cancer cell growth inhibition, presenting a cell viability of 16.0 ± 5.6% after 96 h.
Rhein inhibits angiogenesis and the viability of hormone-dependent and -independent cancer cells under normoxic or hypoxic conditions in vitro.
Near-infrared fluorescent nanoGUMBOS for biomedical imaging.
Near-infrared (NIR) fluorescent nanoparticles generated from an emergent class of materials referred to as a Group of Uniform Materials Based on Organic Salts (GUMBOS) help to resolve issues with dye leakage problems innate to alternate cellular stains and unlock a myriad of applications for these materials.
Increasing Access for Economically Disadvantaged Students: The NSF/CSEM & S-STEM Programs at Louisiana State University
The implementation of these two programs in Louisiana State University (LSU) has shown significant and measurable success since 2000, making LSU a Model University in providing support to economically disadvantaged students within the STEM disciplines.
Spectral «fingerprinting» of phytoplankton populations by two-dimensional fluorescence and Fourier-transform-based pattern recognition
Fourier-transform-based pattern recognition is described along with its inherent strengths and weaknesses for the analysis of natural populations, and the potential for fingerprinting mixed populations and oceanographic regions is discussed.
