Design and formulation of functional pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiac microtissues
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2013-11-19)
Access to robust and information-rich human cardiac tissue models would accelerate drug-based strategies for treating heart disease. Despite significant effort, the generation of high-fidelity adult-like human cardiac ...
Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells have innate procoagulant activity and cause microvascular obstruction following intracoronary delivery: amelioration by antithrombin therapy
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are currently under investigation as tools to preserve cardiac structure and function following acute myocardial infarction (AMI). However, concerns have emerged regarding safety of acute ...
Severe pollution in china amplified by atmospheric moisture
(Springer Nature, 2017-11-17)
In recent years, severe haze events often occurred in China, causing serious environmental problems. The mechanisms responsible for the haze formation, however, are still not well understood, hindering the forecast and ...
Characterising the effect of global and local geometric imperfections on the numerical performance of a brace member
(IOP Publishing, 2015-07-09)
A numerical imperfection study is carried out on a hot rolled tubular brace member under displacement controlled amplitudes. An appropriate range of global and local imperfections is used in the finite element analyses to ...
