Chen, Wu (2021-11-29)  ETD File Embargoed
Many FDA-approved drugs have been repurposed as anticancer agents to fulfill the increasing demand for more effective anti-cancer drugs especially for drug-resistant cancers. Disulfiram (DSF) is an FDA-approved drug which ...

Nanoplasmonic Imaging for Real-time Protein Detection and Cell Secretion Mapping 

Yang, Wen (2022-07-13)  ETD File Embargoed
The immune system is composed of a complex network of immune cells, proteins and, chemicals as the first line of defense to protect the human body against pathogens. Monitoring the immune status through disease progression ...

Nanoreinforced Shape Memory Polyurethane 

Richardson, Tara Beth (2009-11-13)
Shape memory polymers (SMPs) are functional materials, which find applications in a broad range of temperature sensing elements and biological micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). These polymers are capable of fixing ...

Narrative Case Study of Three Secondary Mathematics Teachers that Use Technology Effectively in Classroom Instruction 

Garcia, Nancee (2017-07-27)
Despite calls for the implementation of technology in today’s classrooms to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics, very few teachers implement technology in effective ways, even when they are adequately prepared ...

A Narrative Look at the Regional Voice of Political Columnist Molly Ivins 

Armstrong, Jessica (2005-08-15)
