Research

Research Project(s):
  • Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (RSEC) Interactions and Transformation at Membrane Interfaces 9/1/05 – 8/31/2011 Role: Co-Investigator, 2% (PI: Galen Suppes, Chemical Engineering, University of Missouri – Columbia) Purpose: Merging of traditional engineering with life sciences must occur at the cellular and molecular level, and at the membrane that separates the living cell from its surroundings. Compatibility, recognition, and communication at the membrane allow synthetic components to merge with living tissue. We propose a center that will enhance the basic science programs in the areas of membrane/cellular compatibility. Through this center, the basic scientists will interact with applied scientists and practitioners. The center will make laboratories and equipment available to the researchers, allowing high productivity.
  • • National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) (NS 42664) Maternal Anesthesia and Fetal Cerebral Oxygenation 12/01/01 – 11/30/04 Role: Co-Investigator; 10% Effort (PI: JD Reynolds, Duke University) Goal: To monitor and contrast the effects of general anesthesia to those of regional anesthesia on fetal cerebral oxygenation. Studies are conducted with pregnant sheep and utilize near-infrared spectroscopy.
  • • Dennis W. Jahnigen-American Geriatrics Aging and the Immune Response to Surgical Stress 07/01/02 – 12/31/04 Role: Co-Investigator, 2% Effort (PI: S Lagoo, Duke University) Goal: To define local innate immune responses and systemic immune responses elicited during minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in the elderly.
