Implantation in humans is a complex process that is temporally and spatially restricted. Over the past decade, using a one-by-one approach, several genes and gene products that may participate in this process have been identified in secretory phase endometrium. Herein, we have investigated global gene expression during the window of implantation (peak E2(More)

Rising energy costs have spawned renewed interest in improving methodologies for the synthesis, design and/or retrofitting of separation processes. It is well known that energy use in many process industries is dominated by separation tasks—particularly distillation. In this work, the shortest stripping line approach recently proposed by Lucia, Amale, &(More)
A new methodology for the synthesis, design and retrofitting of energy efficient separation processes that is based on the concept of shortest separation lines is presented. The basic theory of shortest distillation lines, formulated as a nonlinear programming problem, is given. Two examples are presented that show that energy efficient separations(More)
— Robonaut 2 (R2), an upper-body dexterous hu-manoid robot, has been undergoing experimental trials on board the International Space Station (ISS) for more than a year. R2 will soon be upgraded with two climbing appendages, or legs, as well as a new integrated model-based control system. This control system satisfies two important requirements; first, that(More)
The Fish, Forests, and Farms Community (FFFC) was formed to address land management and fisheries issues related to the ESA listing of coho salmon (and other salmonid species) in California. The FFFC is comprised of resource based industry representatives including timber companies, farmers, ranchers, gravel extractors, sport and commercial fishermen, and(More)
Objective This study examines the validity of the NAB Screening Module (screening module of the neuropsychological assessment battery, S-NAB) in an acute traumatic brain injury (TBI) inpatient population and provides psychometric evaluation of an original index sensitive to TBI impairment. Method The utility of the S-NAB as a TBI screen was examined using(More)
