BACKGROUND Emerging technologies (ie, mobile phones, Internet) may be effective tools for promoting physical activity (PA). However, few interventions have provided effective means to enhance social support through these platforms. Face-to-face programs that use group dynamics-based principles of behavior change have been shown to be highly effective in(More)
Molecular aspects of cancer continue to be uncovered by researchers around the world. Theses aspects will need to be exploited in the next generation of cancer treatments. Specific tumor suppressor genes such as p53 can serve as novel therapeutic targets as well. Although the scientific understanding of the actual steps in tumorigenesis is rather muddled,(More)
Schizophrenia (SCZ) is a debilitating disorder with a prevalence of approximately 1 % worldwide. SCZ is known to have a high degree of genetic and clinical heterogeneity and is a major health problem worldwide. The integrin-β 3 subunit gene (ITGB3) gene at 17q21.32 has been implicated in psychiatric disorders. We therefore hypothesized that ITGB3 gene(More)

Our group works with soft semiconductors. These are materials comprised of molecules held together by weak van der Waals bonds. In comparison, the atoms in conventional semiconductors are held together by strong covalent bonds. Weak intermolecular bonds offer a tradeoff to engineers. Their disadvantage is an enhancement of disorder and charge localization,(More)
