Preliminaries This white paper should not be perceived as either supporting or opposing development of a national transmission overlay. Rather, it frames the discussion and provides objective information to use in further considerations. The objective of this paper is to identify benefits to building a national transmission overlay, to lay out essential(More)
Propionibacterium acnes is an opportunistic pathogen which has become notorious owing to its ability to form a recalcitrant biofilm and to develop drug resistance. The current study aimed to develop anti-biofilm treatments against clinical isolates of P. acnes under in vitro and in vivo conditions. A combination of ellagic acid and tetracycline (ETC; 250 μg(More)
In power system reliability assessment, the system security limits and adequacy indices depend on the set of contingencies analyzed. Consequently the final solution strategies for short term operational and long term investment planning studies also depend on the set of contingencies considered for planning. Generally, planning is done for the most critical(More)

Lung cancer remains one of today's most deadly and intractable cancers. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for roughly 85% of lung cancers, with an extremely poor survival rate. To ensure patient comfort and survival, the development of a selective therapy is imperative. However, lung cancer does not display surface proteins associated uniquely(More)
Power system security assessment involves ascertaining the post-contingency security status based on the pre-contingency operating conditions. A system operator accomplishes this by the knowledge of critical system attributes which are closely tied to the system security limits. For instance, voltage levels, reactive power reserves, reactive power flows are(More)
— This paper deals with continuous development and application of a long-term investment planning model that co-optimizes infrastructure investments and operations across transportation and electric infrastructure systems, in meeting the national energy and transportation needs. The paper develops a national passenger transportation model and integrates it(More)
