A Combined Light Sheet Fluorescence and Differential Interference Contrast Microscope
Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy (LSFM) enables imaging of specimens such as live animal embryos, multicellular aggregates, and complex biomaterials with high spatial resolutions, large fields of view, and low levels of photodamage and phototoxicity. However, LSFM does not provide information about the non-fluorescent neighborhood of these cells...

A Facile Route to New and Old Cyclophanes from a Pnictogen-activated Self-Assembly Reaction
The well-defined topology and high strain of cyclophanes has found utility in a number of applications including asymmetric catalysis, insulating plastics, and organic electronics. Unfortunately, the field of cyclophane chemistry has been hindered by a lack of high yielding and functional group tolerant preparative methods for their synthesis. T...

Synthesis of Solution Precursors From Aluminum and Gallium Bulk Minerals/Materials
The inventors developed novel methods for producing Keggin-like structures containing 13 metal ions ranging from all Gallium to all Aluminum to mixed metals of metal ions including combinations of Gallium, Aluminum, and Indium. These clusters are preorganized with the desired stoichiometry, which makes them ideal synthetic precursors for thin film...

Essential amino acid supplementation & geriatric surgery
Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is used to treat knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. In 2008 over 650,000 TKAs were performed in the US alone. The prevalence of TKA is projected to increase to 3.5 million U.S. patients annually at the current growth rates. Despite success as a treatment for osteoarthritis, TKA leaves patients with persistent muscl...

Chemiluminescent Probe for H2S Detection
Hydrogen sulfide is an important biological signalling molecule and an important environmental detection target. Biological H2S exhibits significant effects in both the cardiovascular and neuronal systems and is produced endogenously from cystathionine-β-synthase (CBS), cystathionine-gamma-lyase (CSE), and 3-mercaptopyruvate sulfur transferase...
