Medal branch

The Biomedical Engineering curricula in general must reflect the state of the art in the technology related to medicine and health care, as students who graduate from these programs are directly related to the well-being of the patients, either through new devices and technologies being invented or through the application of their technical knowledge in the service industry. At present, there are more than 25 BME undergraduate programs in Mexico. Most of them are oriented towards the instrumentation and clinical engineering branches of the field, while a few others have strong components in signal analysis...

Linda Hazlett
Linda Hazlett is a department chair and distinguished professor at Wayne State University (MI, USA). Her research is focused on the host immune response to Pseudomonas aeruginosa and its role in ocular infections. Dr Hazlett has been funded continuously by the NIH by R01 support for 34 years. She is currently principal investigator of two R01 grants from the National Eye Institute that study pathogenesis of P. aeruginosa in the eye. Dr Hazlett oversees four Course Directors who lead Year 1 medical student teaching, in addition to two graduate course directors...

This review is an extended version of the Overbeek lecture 2009, given at the occasion of the 23rd Conference of ECIS (European Colloid and Interface Society) in Antalya, where I received the fifth Overbeek Gold Medal awarded by ECIS. I first summarize the basics of numerical SF-SCF: the Scheutjens-Fleer version of Self-Consistent-Field theory for inhomogeneous systems, including polymer adsorption and depletion. The conformational statistics are taken from the (non-SCF) DiMarzio-Rubin lattice model for homopolymer adsorption, which enumerates the conformational details exactly by a discrete propagator for the endpoint distribution but does not account for polymer-solvent interaction and for the volume-filling constraint...

Before the turn of the 20th century, eyes with a retinal detachment were considered doomed. Contrary to other branches of ophthalmology, such as cataract extraction, the surgical treatment of retinal detachment was still in its infancy, and the surgical success rates were less than five percent. From 1902 to 1921 Jules Gonin almost single handedly changed the landscape of retinal detachment surgery forever. He recognised that the retinal break was the cause--and not the consequence as it was largely believed at the time--of the retinal detachment, and that the treatment had at all costs to comprise the closure of the break by cauterisation...

To better understand the anatomical variations and pathogeny of tarsal tunnel syndrome, the tibial nerve were dissected in 20 ankles of fresh black African cadavers. The tibial nerve located to 1.75 cm on average from the posterior side of the malleolus and to 2 cm from medial side of the calcaneus tendon. The nerve always ended according to dichotomic method. 90% cases of bifurcation were noted under the flexor retinaculum at 1 cm from the malléolo_calcaneus line; in 10% of dissections, we found proximal bifurcation at 5 cm from this line...

After more than 25 years at the National Cancer Institute and 13 years as the Director of the NCI's Division of Cancer Treatment, Dr. Bruce Chabner left the NIH in April 1995 to accept a new position at the Massachusetts General Hospital. This decision followed several months of agonizing contemplation. I think Bruce recognized earlier and more perspicaciously than most that the climate at the NCI was about to change dramatically, leaving diminishing opportunities under governmental auspices for the anti-cancer drug discovery and development as well as the clinical research he so loves...

diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
