Violet and Cyril Franks Scholarship

Violet and Cyril Franks Scholarship $5,000 for work in stigma related to mental illness. Deadline: May 15, 2015 Sponsor: American Psychological Foundation The APF Violet and Cyril Franks Scholarship supports graduate-level scholarly projects that use a psychological perspective to help understand and reduce stigma associated with mental illness. The scholarship helps address research which shows that stigma is a significant barrier to treatment and recovery for many of the 50 million Americans living with mental illness. The amount of the scholarship is $5,000. The Franks Scholarship is made possible by the generosity of Drs. Violet and Cyril Franks. Eligibility Full-time graduate student. Good standing at an accredited university. Demonstrated commitment to stigma issues. IRB approval must be received from host institution before funding can be awarded if human participants are involved.

This study investigates the distribution of femoral metastases in cancer patients, specifically addressing the incidence of distal femoral metastases. PET/CT examinations routinely extend only to mid-thigh level, precluding detection of distal metastases. We found a total of 208 femoral metastases in 112 patients. 30% had distal femoral metastases in addition to other areas of involvement. 7% of patients with femoral metastases had only distal femur disease. 6 patients had distal pathologic fractures. Exclusion of the distal femur during PET/CT may result in a missed or delayed diagnosis that could contribute to the develo...

Death in America is changing from hospital to home, which demands complex skills by family caregivers. However, information from family members about the challenges of providing home hospice care until death is scant. To understand the challenges a family caregiver confronts when he/she decides to deliver hospice care and during the actual delivery of the hospice care, we used descriptive phenomenology methods to document the experience of 18 family caregivers as they delivered home hospice care. We learned the decision to begin home hospice was made by a physician, followed frequently by family resistance and refusal to a...

Authors: Bailey HE Abstract A severe and unusual complication found in children with influenza is an acute necrotizing encephalopathy. A 20-month-old female with no significant past medical history was admitted to our facility, presenting with a 4-day history of worsening fever, upper respiratory symptoms, new-onset altered mental status and episodes of extensor posturing. The initial concern was a dystonic reaction secondary to promethazine following a recent diagnosis of influenza A virus. A head computed tomography scan indicated concern for widespread edema, and the video EEG revealed focal slowing in the front...

Authors: Ishii K, Morimatsu H, Ono K, Miyasho K Abstract We performed a retrospective cohort study of 911 high-energy trauma patients who underwent chest CT scans at least twice after admission. We hypothesized that in high-energy trauma patients, a high-inspired oxygen concentration delivered after admission results in dorsal atelectasis. The study's primary outcome was dorsal atelectasis formation diagnosed based on CT images. We defined dorsal atelectasis as the presence of atelectasis at ≥ 10 mm thick on CT images. We defined high-inspired oxygen concentration as>60% oxygen delivered between two CT scans....

The combination of single ‐layer MoS2 with organic molecules by surface assisted Ullmann coupling provides a new and promising methodology to build hybrid systems of organic molecules and two ‐dimensional (2D) materials. The present results demonstrate how molecules can be attached to the corner sites, paving the way to new detailed studies on different molecules that form more complex structures. AbstractLateral heterostructures consisting of 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) directly interfaced with molecular networks or nanowires can be used to construct new hybrid materials with interesting electronic and...

Variable ‐wavelength quick scanning X‐ray microscopy is demonstrated to be a new in situ tool that provides access both to the rotation of the crystalline lattice and to the strain field inside micro‐ and nanostructures under mechanical load. It offers new opportunities to study the mechanical behavior at small scales in situ as well as in heavy and complex environments. AbstractCompression of micropillars is followed in situ by a quick nanofocused X ‐ray scanning microscopy technique combined with 3D reciprocal space mapping. Compared to other attempts using X‐ray nanobeams, it avoids any motion or vibration tha...

A highly uniform and stable 1T phase of WS2 on the 4 in wafer ‐scale is presented, which is still a great challenge due to the metastable nature of 1T phase as well as the lack of suitable growth/fabrication methods. In this way, the 1T‐WS2 is utilized as an electrocatalyst for the hydrogen evolution reaction and exhibits efficient catalytic activity and high durability. AbstractThe metallic 1T phase of WS2 (1T ‐WS2), which boosts the charge transfer between the electron source and active edge sites, can be used as an efficient electrocatalyst for the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). As the semiconductor 2H phase o...

Magnetic force microscopy, which allows mapping of the magnetic field distribution with nanoscale resolution, is a well ‐known tool. However, for the last two decades, calibration was available only to a few labs. Now, after a few years of active research, the calibration protocols have been reviewed and improved, making it available to every laboratory. AbstractThe future of consumer electronics depends on the capability to reliably fabricate nanostructures with given physical properties. Therefore, techniques to characterize materials and devices with nanoscale resolution are crucial. Among these is magnetic force micr...

The non ‐contact electrokinetic scanning probe has the ability to locally deliver and extract ionic species and fluids to and from substrates using a wide range of liquid‐processing solutions in conjunction with localized heating and analyte stacking, which opens the door to a range of new applications in deposition and extraction of biomolecules. AbstractThe theoretical analysis and experimental demonstration of a new concept are presented for a non ‐contact scanning probe, in which transport of fluid and molecules is controlled by electric fields. The electrokinetic scanning probe (ESP) enables local chemical and b...
