Cyclic gamma-Amino Acids and Peptoid Foldamers
Isonipecotic acid provides a stable scaffold with the potential for useful functionalization. Changing the side chains at the β- or γ-positions in the piperidyl ring will tune a peptide towards its biological target or catalytic function. Modifications at these positions is expected to have little effect on the chair conformation adopted...

Method of Reducing Thermal Damage During Electroporation-Based Treatments and Therapies Using Minimal Energy Electrical Pulses
Electroporation is a process by which intense electric fields generate nano-scale defects within the cell membrane. These defects allow molecular exchange between the cell interior and the extracellular environment. We have developed a method by which a minimal amount of energy may be delivered to a cell suspension that will render the cells permea...

System and Method of Stationary Source Computed Tomography
Cardiovascular computing tomography (CVCT) has been successfully applied for the diagnosis of a series of heart diseases. However, the limitations of temporal and spatial resolution and radiation dose inhibit the utilization of CVCT for more clinical applications. The specific primary bottlenecks fo the current CVCT include the difficulties of the ...

Automatic Centerline Isolation and Continuous Width Measurements Between Two Edges
This program takes any image with two nearly-parallel edges and identifies the centerline between them. During that process, the program measures the distance between those edges at each point along the centerline, resulting in a continuous width measurement between the two edges. This information is generated within seconds and can be used to iden...

Interactive Feature Space Explorer
By their local dependence on different biological, chemical and structural tissue properties, biomedical imaging signal generating mechanisms provide the detection of tissue transformations for diagnostic and/or prognostic purposes. Whereas multimodal imaging improves inaccuracies originating from signal overlaps between malignant and benign condit...

Universal-Spatial Robotic Tail Mechanism
The Universal-Spatial Robotic Tail (USRT) is a hybrid robotic manipulator that combines an elastic back bone of a continuum robot with a series serial chain of universal joints as the tail structure. These universal joints allow relative yaw and pitch between individual bodies. Individual segments are created by terminating actuation cabling at a g...

Roll-Revolute-Revolute Robotic Tail (R3RT) Mechanism for Maneuvering and Stabilization of Mobile Robots
The Roll-Revolute-Revolute Robotic Tail (R3-RT) is a robotic system capable of generating dynamic spatial trajectories to provide enhanced performance onboard mobile robots. R3-RT is constructed from a serial chain of revolute joints that form the tail structure and can accommodate two segments of scalable length to achieve two distinct tail curvat...
