Adapted from John Connolly's novel The Book of Lost Things
A Contemporary Discussion about the Influence of African Art and Culture on European Art with an Emphasis on Miquel Barceló
(Creighton University, 2009-05-04)
In modern day it is easy to asses where our artistic influences come from. However there are cases when those influences have not been treated with proper respect and have been appropriated with methodologies that have ...
STARlight: A C++ Object-Oriented Monte Carlo Event Generator for Ultra-Peripheral Collisions
(Creighton University, 2009-12-25)
Ultra-peripheral collisions occur when nuclei pass one another without overlapping. The intense electric fields present can be treated as a flux of virtual photons; these photons can interact with the other nucleus or each ...
T-Regulatory Cells and FLT3-Ligand in the Therapy of Cockroach Antigen-induced Asthma
(Creighton University, 2009-05)
Asthma is a chronic disease of the airways, characterized by airway hyper-responsiveness (AHR) and airway inflammation. Many inflammatory cells, including mast cells, eosinophils, neutrophils, and lymphocytes, are critical ...
Communicating in Times of Crisis: How College and Universities Alert their Campuses of Emergencies
(Creighton University, 2009-08-13)
How colleges and universities communicate during times of crisis has come into sharp focus in recent years, with crisis events dominating headlines with what seems like increasing frequency and greater consequence. Concerns ...
Hope from within: Reform in the Islamic Republic and Ayatollah Montazeri's Mission to Fulfill the Promises of the Iranian Revolution
(Creighton University, 2009-05-15)
The primary purpose of this project was to demonstrate the strong degree of support for reform in Iran from within the clergy. Additionally, this study sought an understanding of why the reform movement had failed and ...
Functional Responses of Lung Dendritic Cell Subsets in Flt3 Ligand-Induced Immunomodulation in Allergic Asthma
(Creighton University, 2009-08)
Asthma is an inflammatory airway disease characterized by airway eosinophilia, airway obstruction due to an increased mucus production by goblet cells, airway remodeling, and airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) to a variety ...
Measuring and Comparing the Diffusion Rate of Fluorescent-Lipophilic-Neurotracing Probes in Murine-Peripheral-Nerve Preparations
(Creighton University, 2009-06-11)
Lipophilic-fluorescent dyes are used as probes to study the neural pathways that wire the brain. Since these dyes are able to define neuroanatomic connections through all stages of normal and mutant development, they are ...
Regulation of ERK1/2 and SAPK/JNK Phosphorylation by Histamine
(Creighton University, 2009-12)
Mitogen activated protein kinases (MAPKs) are specific serine/threonine kinases which respond to various stimuli and control various cellular activities including gene expression, mitosis, cell differentiation, and cell ...
Sequence and Structure Specific Cleavage of Cryptic Recombination Signal Sequences by the V(D)J Recombinase
(Creighton University, 2009-12)
Introduction Immune repertoire diversity is largely achieved by a process termed V(D)J recombination, during which functional antigen receptor genes are assembled from discrete gene segments through site-specific DNA ...
