Investigating the Interactions of Polymeric Excipients with Poorly Water-Soluble Drugs as Means for Pharmaceuticals Bioavailability Enhancement

Purchel, Anatolii (2019-02)
Oral administration is the most preferable route of drug delivery, especially during prolonged therapy of chronic diseases. Unfortunately, many effective pharmaceuticals are poorly water-soluble, which leads to decreased ...

Computational Methods for Sequencing and Interpreting Killer-cell Immunoglobulin-like Receptors (KIRs) at Multiple Resolutions

Roe, David (2021-01)
The era of personalized genetic medicine has arrived. It is now routine to sequence an individual’s DNA, either whole genome sequences (WGS) or targeted, as part of a patient’s medical plan. One of the exceptions is an ...

A Line-Commutated Thyristor-Bridge Emulated Rotating Power Electronic Converter for Brushless Exciter Applications

Pallantla, Manikanta (2021-02)
Conventional brushless exciter supplies field current to the wound-field synchronous machines through a diode bridge rectifier. Though these diode bridge based exciters are more reliable than the static exciters, which use ...

Compositional Behavioral Fault Analysis

Stewart, Danielle (2021-02)
Model-based development tools are increasingly being used for system-level development of safety-critical systems. Architectural and behavioral models provide important information that can be leveraged to improve the ...

The Hexadehydro-Diels-Alder (HDDA) Benzynes with Nitrogen-Nucleophiles (Diaziridines, N-Hetaryls, and C,N-Diarylimines); and the Kobayashi Benzynes as HDDA-Diynophiles
