University of Washington Amgen Scholars Program

University of Washington Amgen Scholars Program All application materials need to be completed and SUBMITTED by Monday, February 3, 2014. The University of Washington’s (UW) Amgen Scholars Program provides a transformative opportunity for some of the nation’s top undergraduates to explore and prepare for careers in scientific research. This summer program places selected students in premiere research groups under the direction of UW faculty in the biomedical sciences and provides related seminars, career exploration, graduate school preparation, and other activities. The program enables students to explore connections between their undergraduate major areas of study and future post-graduate study focused on research in science, biotechnology and related fields. The UW Amgen Scholars Program will host 25 undergraduates each summer competitively selected from a national pool of applicants (including current UW undergraduates). In addition to intensive research experiences, participants benefit from graduate student, post-doctoral and faculty mentors. UW Amgen Scholars attend weekly research seminars on current topics in biomedical research as well as research skills and ethics. Faculty research mentors represent a range of departments including Biology, Bioengineering, Bioinformatics, Chemistry, Engineering, Pathology, Pharmacology, and Genome Sciences.  Room and board is provided for participants to live on the beautiful UW campus during the summer pro...

Conclusions: Results reveals that developed nitrendipine nanoemulsion gel overcomes the limitation of low penetration and accentuate permeation through albino Wistar rat skin. It was concluded that nanoemulsion gel could be utilized as a potential carrier for transdermal delivery of nitrendipine. PMID: 31976777 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: In conclusion, the potential for supersaturation in LBDDS, and the risk of precipitation, was found to be highly drug dependent. The apparent degree of supersaturation was considered a major factor impacting the ability to maintain drug supersaturation upon storage. PMID: 31975613 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to offer a reference for the rational indications of AT.Methods: We retrospectively included 1216 stage IB GC who experienced curative surgery from the SEER database between 2004 and 2015. These patients were allocated into two groups: Group AT and Group surgery alone (Group SA). We established a nomogram to predict OS and then divided whole cohort into low-risk and high-risk groups based on the OS predicted by the nomogram.Results: Six variables, which were significantly related with OS of entire patients after matched, were incorporated in the nomogram. These variables were age, examined lymph nodes, tum...

We report on the morphological disparity of the columnar growth in W thin films sputter-deposited by oblique angle deposition. Oriented tungsten thin films (400 ± 50 nm thick) are prepared using a tilt angle α of 80° and a sputtering pressure of 0.25 Pa. Inclined columns (β = 38 ± 2°) are produced and the microstructure is observed by scanning electron microscopy. A 4-view imaging is performed in order to show inhomogeneous growing evolutions in the columns. Morphological features vs. viewing direction are also investigated from a growth simulation of...

To solve above issues, a bioactive coating consisted of gelatin (Gel) and chitosan-graft-polyaniline (Chi-PANI) was fabricated with layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly technique on titanium dioxide nanotubes (TNT) substrates. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), water contact angle (WCA) measurement X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and at...

Opris, Guangbiao Xu, Jing WangAbstractDue to recent serious air pollution especially in Asian countries, electret air filters with ultra-high efficiency have attracted much attention. However, the crucial issue of restraining charge dissipation to maintain stable electrostatic capture efficiency is still challenging. Herein, electret mechanisms, charge degradation kinetics and lifetime in filtration applications of electrospun membranes and corona-charged membranes exposed to isopro...

Publication date: Available online 24 January 2020Source: Journal of Food EngineeringAuthor(s): Jiří Blahovec, Pavel KouřímAbstractThe tissue of carrot (variety Jereda) was tested using dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) combined with dielectric thermal analysis (DETA), in air of 90% humidity in temperature scans between 30 and 90 °C. Temperature plots of loss tangent were determined. In DETA, based on alternated current of frequency 20 kHz, both components of impedance were continually determined. Pulsed electric field (PEF) was applied prior to the DMA and DETA tests. Four sets of experiments were ...

Emulsification was carried out at various stirring speeds (Ultra-Turrax at 8000, 11,000, and 15,000 rpm with an oil content of 10%). Two treatments were used to test the stability of the emulsions: under a static condition for two weeks and under thermal treatment using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) at −30 to 50 °C for three cycles. The ...

Knowing which beverages and foods to serve together to attain optimal sensory quality is a core competence of sommeliers. Still, little is known about how this competence is actually acquired. Furthermore, scholars of cultural sociology suggest that cultural aspects of taste as “good&rd...

Nair, David Peter S.AbstractBreast cancer is the most prevalent invasive type of cancer among women. The mortality rate of the disease can be reduced considerably through timely prognosis and felicitous treatment planning, by utilizing the computer aided detection and diagnosis techniques. With the advent of whole slide image (WSI) scanners for digitizing the histopathological tissue samples, there is a drastic increase in the availability of digital histopathological images. However, these samples are...
