    Since the 2003 completion of the human genome by means of the Sanger-based DNA sequencing strategy and capillary array electrophoresis, the scientific and medical community has worked to make personalized medicine a reality. Next-generation DNA sequencing technologies with astoundingly high throughput are now in use and have provided exciting new capabilities. However, next-generation instruments are currently incapable of providing highly accurate, long sequencing read lengths, have difficulty sequencing through repetitive sequences, and have yet to "scale down" well for point-of-care diagnostics. The 600 to 700 base read lengths at 98% accuracy that are provided by capillary electrophoresis and the Sanger method are still the gold standard for medical sequencing. In recent years, there has been a natural progression from CAE to microchip electrophoresis. Microchip electrophoresis provides highly accurate sequencing at a small compromise to read length (~ 500 to 600 bases) while offering the potential for a significant increase in throughput due to the reduced separation times and the possibility to create a lab-on-a-chip (LOC) device that integrates upstream sample preparation steps. These advantages render CAE and microchip electrophoresis platforms desirable for clinical diagnostic tests since they offer highly accurate sequencing needed to analyze medically relevant genes and precisely genotype forensic samples. Therefore, this work focuses on understanding variables that influence the migration mechanism of single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) through physically- entangled polymer matrices used in CAE and microchip electrophoresis in an effort to increase throughput and bridge the gap for clinical adoption. First, I discuss the application of the biased reptation model (BRM) to CAE sequencing separations. In this study, I report the synthesis and characterization of an ultra-high molar mass linear polyacrylamide (LPA) to be used as a replaceable, physically-entangled polymer matrix and the migration mechanisms of ssDNA through the LPA matrices are evaluated using reptation plots. Properties of the LPA matrices (i.e. average pore size and viscosity) is tuned by the overall polymer concentration as well as mixing ultra-high and low molar mass LPA. In the end, a blended LPA solution generates a dynamically responsive polymer matrix that increases sequencing read lengths by delaying the onset of oriented biased reptation. The near-optimal blended LPA matrix which extends average read lengths to 830 bases in ~1 hour on a high-throughput CAE instrument. This represents a performance that is substantially better than the best commercial instrument/matrix CAE system available, which takes 2 hours to produce 830 bases. This was achieved by matrix optimization only. Second, I discuss transient effects on the DNA sequencing read length caused by shear-induced LPA stretching during the pressure-induced capillary loading of the polymer matrix which results in entanglement inhomogeneity. The network inhomogeneity, in turn, increases peak widths due to mobility variation among ssDNA fragments in the radial direction of the microchannel. The contributions of the matrix rheological properties, microchannel dimensions, and loading pressure to the shear forces placed on the matrix during loading are thoroughly examined. Finally, tests were carried out on microfluidic chips to reduced polymer network disruption. In the end, the loading conditions were optimized to enable loading and unloading of a sequencing matrix in less than 1 minute that also provides sequencing read lengths on the order of 550 to 600 bases in ~ 8 minutes. These results provide universal parameters for high-throughput loading of polymer matrices into capillaries and microchips used in electrophoretic genotyping assays and newly invented LOC platforms, such that the performance of the matrix will be optimal.

    Ultrasound guidance of liver surgery is a very sophisticated approach that permits the performance of otherwise unfeasible operations, discloses the true extent of tumors, increases the indications for hepatectomy, and renders surgery safer. Despite this, it has remained relatively neglected in the literature over the past two decades, during which time much progress has been achieved. This is the first atlas on the subject, and it is comprehensive in scope. The state of the art in the use of ultrasound for resection guidance is carefully documented, and new techniques for exploration of the biliary tract and facilitation of transplant surgery are presented. Further important topics include the role of ultrasound in laparoscopic approaches, the use of contrast agents for diagnosis and staging, and developments in the planning of surgical strategy. The editor is a leading authority whose group has been responsible for a variety of advances in the field. He has brought together other experts whose aim throughout is to provide clear information and guidance on the optimal use of ultrasound when performing liver surgery. This atlas is intended especially for hepatobiliary surgeons but will also be of considerable value for general surgeons.

    Ultrasound Imaging: Advances and Applications presents some of the recent advances in Ultrasound imaging technology covering several organs and techniques in a Biomedical Engineering (BME) perspective. The focus of the book is in the algorithms, methodologies and systems developed by multidisciplinary research teams of engineers and physicians for Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD) purposes. Cardiovascular and Cancer, the most common life-threatening diseases in western countries, are two of the most important topics focused in the book. However, other advanced issues are also presented such as Intravascular Ultrasound, 3D US and Ultrasound in Computer-Aided Surgery (CAS). Some chapters are direct contributions from medical research groups where Ultrasound has also received great attention in the last decade. By this, new techniques based on Ultrasound were introduced in the clinical practice for diagnosis and therapeutics, mainly in hospital facilities.

    Ultrasound in the Intensive Care Unit explores the current state of evidence supporting use of bedside ultrasound for procedural guidance and for the critical care-focused assessment of a variety of organ systems. This text covers standard practice areas, such as ultrasound guidance for vascular access in the ICU, as well as novel, less well-known applications such as the use of ultrasound for assessment of diaphragm function in patients with respiratory failure. As current ultrasound education is often dependent on widely varying local expertise, this book serves as a standard reference in what is at present a fragmented and challenging field of study for busy clinicians. By providing a comprehensive overview of the current state of critical care ultrasonography, with content contributed by experts in the field, this text will serve as a valuable resource that will allow education in critical care ultrasound to keep pace with the rapid technological growth that has driven this vital area of critical care medicine. Ultrasound in the Intensive Care Unit is essential reading for pulmonologists, practitioners in internal, hospitalist, and critical care medicine; educators and instructors in critical care ultrasound; and medical students, residents, and critical care trainees.

    Ultrasound-induced neurostimulation has recently gained increasing attention. Developments in the use of ultrasound to stimulate and modulate neural activity have raised the possibility of using ultrasound as a new investigative and therapeutic tool in brain research. Little is known about the mechanisms by which it affects neural activity or about the range of acoustic parameters and stimulation protocols that elicit responses. In this thesis, conditions are established for transcranial stimulation of the nervous system in vivo, using the mouse somatomotor response. It is reported that (1) continuous-wave stimuli are as effective as or more effective than pulsed stimuli in eliciting responses, and responses are elicited with stimulus onset rather than stimulus offset; (2) stimulation success increases as a function of both acoustic intensity and acoustic duration; (3) interactions of intensity and duration suggest that successful stimulation results from the integration of stimulus amplitude over a time interval of 50 to 150 ms; (4) the motor response elicited appears to be an all-or-nothing phenomenon, meaning stronger stimulus intensities and durations increase the probability of a motor response without affecting the duration or strength of the response; and (5) motor responses, measured by normalized EMG signals in the neck and tail regions, change signifcantly when sonicating rostral and caudal regions of the mouse motor cortex. Taken together our findings present good evidence for being able to target selective parts of the motor cortex with ultrasound neurostimulation in the mouse, steps that should provide encouragement for the development of new applications in larger animal models, including humans.

    This book highlights the practical characteristics of uncommon diseases and presents the most relevant features for the management of intensive care units. It does not aim to provide an exhaustive description of uncommon diseases, focusing instead on the major diseases that intensivists may encounter in their clinical practice. After a brief introduction on the epidemiology and pathophysiology of each disease, the authors emphasize the aspects related to diagnosis and treatment, providing concise and pragmatic guidance for residents and intensivists who care for patients with uncommon diseases. Although by definition uncommon diseases have a low prevalence in the general population, they can affect a large number of patients admitted to intensive care units, as they can often be diagnosed at intensive care units. Indeed, often a complication of the disease is what leads to the patient's being admitted to an intensive care unit.

    Over half of all violent crimes are committed by only about 5% of offenders. While most healthy people feel strong aversion to seeing other people in pain, fear, or sadness, a phenomenon I define as "negative intersubjectivity", these persistent violent offenders (PVOs) have blunted reactions to other people's distress and the strength of their negative intersubjectivity deficit correlates with how much violence they ultimately perform. This suggests that if we could learn how to enhance PVOs aversion to other people's distress, we could decrease their violent behavior. In this dissertation, I describe a new rat model that can be used to study the neural mechanisms underlying negative intersubjectivity. I demonstrate that Observer rats will overcome their innate aversion of bright light to consistently avoid a dark, safe space if entering that dark space is paired with another Receiver rat getting shocked, a behavior called "intersubjective avoidance". In Chapter 2, I describe the relatively poor intersubjective avoidance behavior of mice. In Chapter 3, I describe the comparatively strong intersubjective avoidance behavior of rats, and show that rats' intersubjective avoidance is enhanced by personal experience with shock. In Chapter 4, I use patterns of expression of the immediate early gene c-Fos to determine whether activity in candidate brain regions correlates with intersubjective avoidance. I provide evidence that many brain regions--including the anterior cingulate, anterior insula, infralimbic cortex, and central amygdala--are active both when observing shock in another and when receiving shock to oneself, similar to what has been shown by fMRI studies of humans observing others in pain. However, within these areas, only activity in the anterior cingulate robustly correlates with how much intersubjective avoidance each individual Observer rat performs, perhaps analogous to how fMRI studies in humans have show that anterior cingulate activity correlates with humans' self-reports of "empathy". These results validate the rat model of intersubjective avoidance as model of negative intersubjectivity in humans, and highlight the anterior cingulate as a potential target for negative intersubjectivity interventions. In Chapter 5, I describe future experiments and discuss how research using this new behavioral paradigm may help develop treatments for not only PVOs, but all anti-social behavior.

    My dissertation deals with the figure of the doctor in early Russian nineteenth-century prose, which manifests a shift in the way literature depicts human physicality and the characters' everyday life. My major source is 1820s-1840s prose, mostly published in the literary and cultural journals Biblioteka dlia Chtenia, Syn Otechestva, and others. My sources reflect the impressive expansion in Russian literature and medicine in the first quarter of the nineteenth century. Using documentary and literary sources, I demonstrate that the artistic representation of physicians in Romantic and Realist prose contributes to the introduction of previously unknown themes into literature: medical perspectives on physical suffering, the private everyday lives of ordinary people, and even the mystical view of other worlds. The combination of medical and mystical discourses in the vocabulary of real doctors in the first half of the nineteenth century gave them the authority to judge human bodies, lives, and, they believed, souls: they seemed to observe from inside and outside at the same time. By including a doctor among their characters, fiction writers thus could use a powerful instrument that let them introduce new topics. As I show, through the mid nineteenth century, the fictional doctors situated at the margin of literary plots performed the role of an important textual device: they served as go-betweens among other characters, mediating, connecting or splitting them. They affected the relationship between characters, the plot's trajectory, and the readers' perception. The situation shifts in mid century; with the gradual separation of doctor from his instrumental function, this character moves to the center of the plot and loses his structural power.

    This white paper reviews and summarizes hundreds of scientific research papers by leading experts in the fields of addiction, eating disorders, obesity and nutrition to lay out the shared characterizing symptoms, risk factors and underlying neurobiological characteristics between food and substance addiction. It describes the differences between food addiction and binge eating disorder (now an official psychiatric diagnosis). It offers evidence-based recommendations for policy, prevention, health care practice and research, and offers informative resources for further examination of this emergent area of work. Finally, it highlights how the knowledge and experience gained from years of research, prevention and intervention work in tobacco, alcohol and other drug control might be applied to controlling another leading threat to the public health: unhealthy eating, overweight and obesity. The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse looks forward to contributing to this body of research and policy work through its new program at Yale under the direction of Dr. Carlos Grilo.

    The mammalian cell surface is comprised of a heterogenous mixture of proteins and lipids decorated by carbohydrates. These molecules are known as glycoconjugates. Among the many types of glycolipids imbedded within the plasma membrane is a class of negatively charged species known as gangliosides. Gangliosides, which are characterized by the presence of sialic acid residues, are responsible for regulating the activity of many cell surface proteins and serve as recognition targets for cell-cell communication and pathogen invasion. To investigate the biological roles of gangliosides in mammalian cells, I have employed metabolic oligosaccharide engineering techniques to introduce small structural changes into sialic acid residues. Using these methods, I have successfully demonstrated the biosynthesis of photocrosslinking gangliosides in mammalian cells. These photocrosslinking gangliosides can be used to capture and isolate transient ganglioside-mediated interactions in their native environment. I have also used metabolic engineering techniques to probe the substrate selectivity of ganglioside sialyltransferases in mammalian cells. My results illustrate significant differences in the ability of different cell lines to metabolize sialic acid analogs; these differences may be due species-specific variations in sialyltransferase specificity.

    RNA is an important biological macromolecule that carries out a variety of roles in the cell. To function, RNA needs to fold into precise three-dimensional structures. Different physical forces like entropy, base-pairing and stacking interactions, tertiary contacts and electrostatics affect this folding process. In the first part of this thesis, we focus on nucleic acid electrostatics; RNA molecules have negatively charged backbones that require counterions to neutralize charge-repulsion and facilitate folding. We discuss the ion conditions necessary for a riboswitch (gene-regulating RNA found on 5' or 3' ends of messenger RNA) folding, studied how the flexibility of single stranded DNA is affected by the presence of different amounts of counterions and present a benchmark experimental dataset that can be used for direct comparison to electrostatic theories. The second part of the thesis deals with computational and analysis tools developed to model and understand nucleic acid systems with the ultimate goal of being able to predict RNA structure. Since RNA typically folds hierarchically, we devised a general hierarchical sampling protocol that naturally explores RNA three-dimensional conformational space efficiently and can be used in concert with any force field, such as an RNA knowledgebased potential that we also discuss in this thesis. Additionally, we examined a clustering method that can assist analysis of structural models. Lastly, we applied our modeling techniques to study simple two-way RNA junctions with all-atom representation, and probed the modeled effects of sterics, chain connectivity and sequence on dynamic RNA behavior.

    The overall goal of this dissertation is to use novel motion analysis systems to investigate the underlying mechanisms that cause an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and then to explore movement modification methods that might prevent ACL injuries from occurring. Additionally, novel motion analysis systems can provide new information about ACL injuries and therefore should be used to help analyze these injuries from a different perspective. This thesis provides the results from multiple experimental studies that used two novel motion analysis systems to investigate the underlying causes of ACL injury and potential injury prevention methods. Using a markerless motion capture system, the first investigation determined that increasing the coefficient of friction of the shoe-surface condition will change a subject's movement strategies during a sidestep cutting task in specific ways that may increase the risk of ACL injury. This investigation provides a biomechanical basis for the increased incidence of ACL injuries on high friction surfaces, and suggests that females are more at risk for ACL injury when cutting on high friction surfaces. In terms of novel motion analysis systems, there is a need for simple, cost effective methods to identify athletes at a higher risk for ACL injury during jumping tasks. As such, the second study assessed the capacity of a wearable inertial-based system to evaluate ACL injury risk during jumping tasks. The proposed system measured the knee flexion angle and the trunk lean, and demonstrated good concurrent validity and discriminative performance in terms of the known risk factors for ACL injury. This study also reported the angular velocity of the thigh and shank segments during bilateral and unilateral drop jumps for the first time. Furthermore, this study illustrated that there is an association between the coronal segment angular velocity and knee abduction moment, and that the coronal segment angular velocity can differentiate between subjects at higher risk for ACL injury. Recent studies have shown that the incidence of ACL injury can be decreased through the use of intervention programs. Therefore, the objective for the final study was to determine if an independent inertial-based system can be used to modify jump landing mechanics in order to decrease the risk for ACL injury by providing real-time feedback based on known kinematic and kinetic injury risk factors. This study found that the subjects reduced their risk for ACL injury after training with the system because there were significant increases in the maximum knee flexion angle and the maximum trunk lean. The subjects also reduced their risk for injury by decreasing their thigh coronal angular velocity, which was correlated with a decrease in their knee abduction moment. This study suggests that an inertial-based system could be used for interventional training aimed at reducing the risk for ACL injury.

    Many children with cerebral palsy walk with a stiff knee gait, or a reduction and delay in swing phase knee flexion, which causes tripping or energy-inefficient compensatory movements. Since over-activity of the rectus femoris muscle is frequently implicated as the cause, a common treatment is transfer of the distal end of the rectus femoris from its insertion on the patella to a location behind the knee. Outcomes, though positive on average, vary among individuals, with some patients demonstrating unimproved or worsened knee flexion postoperatively. This variability is due in part to insufficient understanding of the biomechanical causes of stiff-knee gait and the functional effects of surgical treatment. The goal of this dissertation was to clarify the causes of stiff-knee gait and examine the biomechanical mechanism of improvement following rectus femoris transfer surgery. Swing-phase rectus femoris activity is commonly thought to cause of stiff-knee gait, despite evidence that many patients have excessive knee extension moments in preswing rather than swing phase. We compared the effects of preswing to swing phase activity of the rectus femoris on peak knee flexion in swing by creating and analyzing musculoskeletal simulations of subjects with stiff-knee gait. We found that in six out of ten subjects preswing rectus femoris activity had at least a 90% higher effect on peak knee flexion than swing phase rectus femoris activity, suggesting that preswing rectus femoris activity is an important factor limiting knee flexion in some subjects and should be examined to better determine the factors leading to stiff-knee gait. To understand how other muscles, besides rectus femoris, may limit knee flexion in stiff-knee gait, it is first necessary to understand how muscles coordinate successful swing phase knee flexion in unimpaired gait and how muscle contributions change with walking speed, since many stiff-knee subjects walk slowly. We analyzed simulations of unimpaired subjects walking at different speeds to determine the muscles that accelerated and decelerated knee flexion prior to swing. We found that preswing knee flexion acceleration was achieved primarily by the hip flexor muscles with help from biceps femoris short head, suggesting that weakness in these muscles may contribute to stiff-knee gait. Vasti and soleus decelerated knee flexion, suggesting over-activity in these muscles may contribute to stiff-knee gait. We also investigated the mechanism of improvement following rectus femoris transfer surgery. We altered the geometry of rectus femoris and simulated the dynamics of the swing phase of subjects with stiff-knee gait after different surgical procedures. Analysis of the simulations demonstrated that knee flexion may be improved with a reduction of the knee extension moment generated by the rectus femoris, even if the muscle is not converted to a knee flexor. This dissertation clarifies preswing rectus femoris activity as a cause of stiff-knee gait, demonstrates the functional mechanism of improvement following transfer surgery, and informs future research investigating other potential contributors to stiff-knee gait.

    Recent technological advances in high throughput technology, sample preparation and data analysis have made whole genome mRNA and miRNA analysis of purified hematopoietic cell populations much more accessible. The high throughput analysis of the hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) population has yielded massive amounts of data and now we are in the process of biologically validating these targets. Esam1 is one target yielded from microarray analysis of the HSC population. We found Esam1 to be highly and selectively expressed by HSC from mouse bone marrow. Esam1 is also a viable positive HSC marker in fetal, young and aged mice, as well as in mice of several different strains. In addition, we find robust levels of Esam1 transcripts in purified human HSC. Esam1-/- mice do not exhibit severe hematopoietic defects, however, Esam1-/- BM has an increased frequency of HSC and fewer T cells. HSC from Esam1-/- mice give rise to more granulocyte/monocytes in culture and a higher T cell:B cell ratio upon transplantation into congenic mice. These studies identify Esam1 as a novel, widely applicable HSC-selective marker and suggest that Esam1 may play roles in both HSC proliferation and lineage decisions. MicroRNA-125b (miR-125b) is a target yielded from miRNA profiling of the HSC population. We show that miR-125b is highly expressed in HSC and its expression decreases in committed progenitors. Overexpression of miR-125b in mouse HSC enhances their function, demonstrated through serial transplantation of highly purified HSC, and enriches for the previously described Slamf1lo CD34- lymphoid balanced and the Slamf1negCD34- lymphoid biased cell subsets within the multipotent HSC [CD34-KLS] fraction. This enrichment of HSC subsets occur via an anti-apoptotic mechanism, reducing the mRNA expression levels of two pro-apoptotic targets, Bmf and KLF13. The anti-apoptotic effect of miR-125b is more pronounced in the lymphoid biased HSC subset because of their intrinsic higher baseline levels of apoptosis. Together, these data reveal that miR-125b regulates hematopoietic stem cell survival and can promote lymphoid fate decisions at the level of the HSC by preferentially expanding lymphoid balanced and lymphoid biased HSC.

    Microglia are the resident immune cells of the central nervous system. This unique population of cells has been implicated in some way in every neurodegenerative disorder, but they are also essential for proper neural development and for maintaining homeostasis in the healthy adult brain. To assume such distinct roles, the range of microglial effector functions is impressively diverse, and includes the capacity for proliferation, motility, the secretion of both pro- and anti-inflammatory factors, and phagocytosis. The execution of these functions is based upon the detection of signals from their microenvironments, which microglia are particularly well equipped to recognize. Thus microglia are remarkably versatile in terms of both their sensory abilities for external cues and their functions in response to these signals. Understanding the mechanisms by which these cells are controlled is therefore a primary goal in the field of microglial biology and will also be essential for harnessing microglial functions in disease states. The studies presented in this dissertation aim to elucidate the regulation of microglial behavior through extrinsic signaling mechanisms at multiple levels: the first at the level of a defined molecular niche within the brain, and the second within the context of the systemic signaling environment of the organism as a whole. In the first study, we demonstrate the integral relationship between microglia and neural progenitor cells (NPCs). Microglia are known to influence some functions of NPCs, which in the adult mammalian brain reside within specific neurogenic niches. We found that NPCs themselves are in fact capable of secreting a distinct profile of immunomodulatory proteins and are powerful modulators of microglial activity and functions. In the second study, we investigate mechanisms of microglial regulation in the aging organism. We found that aging is accompanied by a general increase in neuroinflammation and microglial dysfunction. Some of these microglial alterations may be mediated, in part, by age-related changes in the levels of bloodborne proteins of the systemic environment. Furthermore, we show that manipulation of the molecular composition of the systemic environment through heterochronic parabiosis can accelerate in young animals, or reverse in old animals, microglial aging phenotypes. Collectively, this work highlights the regulation of microglial phenotypes and functions through signaling mechanisms occurring at both the cell-to-cell and system-wide level. These findings will not only expand our general understanding of microglial biology but could also have implications for the development of therapeutic interventions to control microglia in disease states.

    From the stresses of repeated deployments to the difficulties of re-entry into civilian life, we are just beginning to understand how protracted conflicts, such as those in Iraq and Afghanistan, are affecting service members. Issues such as risky health behaviors and chemical dependence raise productivity concerns as they do with all organizations, but they also have a profound impact on the safety and readiness of troops--and by extension, the military as a whole--in life-or-death situations. Understanding Military Workforce Productivity cuts through the myths and misconceptions about the health and resilience of today's active-duty armed forces. This first-of-its-kind volume presents up-to-date findings across service branches in core health areas including illness and injury, alcohol and drug abuse, tobacco use, obesity, and mental health. The short- and long-term implications discussed relate to the quality of the lives of service members and their families, the quality and preparedness of the military as a workforce, and prevention and intervention efforts.

    In this book international experts address a range of key current issues relating to suicide. The opening chapters discuss nosology, definitions, clinical determinants, and conceptual models of the suicide process and consider the evidence regarding potential biomarkers of suicide risk based on neuroscientific research. Adopting a neo-Durkheimian perspective, the role of various social factors in the genesis of suicidal behavior is then explored in depth. Practical user-friendly tools that facilitate risk assessment by clinicians are provided, and detailed consideration is given to efficient and innovative strategies for the prevention of suicide and the treatment of suicidal behavior, such as psychotherapy, psychopharmacological approaches, and effective organization of care, including surveillance and the use of online tools. The final part of the book focuses on the need for and development of a personalized approach within the field of suicide prevention. Understanding Suicide will be of interest to psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health professionals, general practitioners, researchers in suicidology, and students.

    From their earliest histopathological descriptions, neurodegenerative disorders have been known to involve neuroinflammation. Yet the exact nature of the changes in inflammation, as well as the role of neuroinflammation in the pathogenesis of the disease, are not well understood. In this dissertation, I attempt to uncover the nature of the changes in the systemic immune system in neurodegeneration and the role that these changes play in disease progression. The first study presented here (Chapter 2) presents an investigation of the changes in the plasma cytokines and peripheral immune cells in Frontotemporal Dementia. Frontotemporal Dementia is the leading cause of early-onset neurodegenerative disease and is known to be caused by several mutations, including one that results in haploinsufficiency of progranulin, a gene known to attenuate inflammation. However, Frontotemporal Dementia is often sporadic, with no known genetic or environmental cause, and the underlying changes that cause this very specific, localized neurodegeneration has been unclear. In this study, we use an unbiased protein profiling platform, the antibody microarray, developed in our lab, to assay the changes in plasma protein levels in progranulin-mutation Frontotemporal Dementia and sporadic Frontotemporal Dementia. We found that there was an increase in pro-inflammatory cytokines similar to changes in cytokines observed in autoimmune disease and suggestive of changes in cellular immune phenotype. Therefore, we used a new flow cytometry technology, CyTOF by Time of Flight mass spectrometry (CyTOF), to profile immune cells in FTD patients in an unbiased manner. We found changes in CD8 T cells and Natural Killer cells similar to changes observed in autoimmune disorders. Along with colleagues at UCSF, we then conducted a retrospective study to determine if FTD patients have a higher comorbidity of autoimmune disease than the general population, and we found this to be the case. We found similar changes in inflammatory proteins and immune cells in the mouse model of Frontotemporal Dementia (GRN -/-). The next series of experiments (Chapter 3) sought to determine how the changes in the systemic protein levels in the plasma FTD patients affected the changes in the central nervous system (CNS) associated with the neurodegenerative disorders and with the changes in immune cell populations. To this end, we used two methods of introducing FTD-disease plasma to WT or GRN +/- mice: parabiosis and human plasma transfer. While we observed no changes in the strongest phenotype of the mouse model, microgliosis, in the parabiosis experiment, we observed intriguing behavior changes in GRN +/- animals treated with plasma from human FTD patients. For the next set of experiments to determine the relationship between the cytokine changes in FTD patients and the immune cell subset changes, we developed a new culture system in which we cultured whole blood with plasma-infused media, enabling us to use cells from a single donor to assay the effects of exposure of aged or FTD-patient plasma. In the final series of experiments, we sought to solidify the understanding of the changes in the systemic immune system in Alzheimer's Disease with a thorough immunophenotyping study. For four years, we collected and cryopreserved peripherial blood mononuclear cells from Alzheimer's Disease patients, resulting in a collection of over 100 samples from patients with mild to sever Alzheimer's Disease, patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment, a precursor to Alzheimer's Disease, and age-matched, cognitively healthy individuals. We developed a new CyTOF platform panel to measure the ability of cells to respond to cytokine treatment as well as the traditional immunophenotyping. We found indications that cells from Alzheimer's Disease patients are less responsive to cytokine stimuli. Collectively, this work highlights the importance of the changes in the systemic immune system in neurodegenerative disorders. It provides new insight into possible mechanisms of disease pathology and potential new avenues for future therapeutic targets.

    The overall goal of this dissertation was to address the question of the relationship between anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) graft function, changes in walking mechanics, and the morphology of the articular cartilage in the ACL reconstructed knee as a step towards filling critical gaps in the available knowledge of the association between ACL injury and premature osteoarthritis of the knee. ACL injury often leads to premature osteoarthritis of the knee even when the ACL is reconstructed and alterations in knee mechanics during walking have been identified as a potential mechanism of cartilage degeneration in the ACL deficient knee. This thesis provides the results of experimental studies using magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and gait analysis to understand the effect of ACL reconstruction on the mechanics of walking and articular cartilage morphology in the context of a potential mechanism for the initiation of osteoarthritis. These results provide a basis for improving the treatment and long-term prognosis of the ACL injured knee. Gait analysis of subjects after ACL reconstruction showed that during the stance phase of walking, their ACL reconstructed knee had significantly more external tibial rotation when compared to their contralateral knee. This kinematic alteration likely causes changes in normal cartilage contact mechanics and could contribute to the eventual degeneration of the articular cartilage. Analysis of ACL graft placement in this population revealed a potential mechanism for the observed alteration in ambulatory mechanics in the ACL reconstructed knee. Variations in graft placement were correlated with the magnitude of the peak external knee flexion moment (balanced by a net quadriceps moment) and the tibiofemoral rotational position of the reconstructed knee during walking. In both cases, non-anatomic graft placement resulted in greater deviations in the ambulatory mechanics of the ACL reconstructed knee. Since these results indicated graft placement plays a critical role in the restoration of normal ambulatory mechanics, MR imaging was utilized to develop a method to determine the three-dimensional location of native tibial and femoral ACL insertions to guide and evaluate anatomic ACL graft placement. Analysis of healthy and ACL reconstructed subjects revealed the presence of side-to-side symmetry in location of ACL insertions in healthy subjects but not after transtibial ACL reconstruction, indicating that conventional transtibial reconstruction frequently places the graft outside the center of the anatomical ACL footprint. Further examination of the effects of non-anatomic ACL graft placement revealed the unintended consequences of vertical sagittal orientation of the ACL graft. These results demonstrated that although vertical sagittal graft orientation was associated with less occurrence of an active knee extension deficit during walking (as intended), it was also associated with an increased anterior tibial neutral position in the ACL reconstructed knees. Finally, in order to investigate the mechanism of the proposed kinematic pathway to osteoarthritis after ACL reconstruction, the individual-specific femoral cartilage thickness distribution was related to knee flexion during walking in the reconstructed and healthy contralateral knees. The results of this study showed that although a relationship existed in both the reconstructed and contralateral knees, a shift in knee flexion at heel-strike without an adaptation in cartilage thickness distribution caused an alteration in the relationship in the ACL reconstructed knees. Thus failure of the ACL reconstruction to restore normal walking mechanics could contribute the breakdown of articular cartilage in the ACL reconstructed knee. The results of these studies provide a better understanding of the influence of ACL reconstruction on the subsequent changes in the mechanics of the ACL reconstructed knee. These findings present insights into the complex relationship between variations in ACL graft placement, changes in walking mechanics, and the distribution of cartilage thickness in the context of a potential kinematic mechanism for the development of premature osteoarthritis after ACL injury and reconstruction. Taken together, these results provide a basis for improving the standard of care for the ACL injured knee.

    Post-replication repair (PRR) pathways play important roles in restarting stalled replication forks and regulating mutagenesis. In yeast, Rad5-mediated damage avoidance and Rad18-mediated translesion synthesis (TLS) are two forms of PRR. Two Rad5-related proteins, SHPRH and HLTF, have been identified in mammalian cells, but their specific roles in PRR are unclear. Here, we show that HLTF and SHPRH suppress mutagenesis in a damage-specific manner, preventing mutations induced by UV and MMS, respectively. Following UV, HLTF enhances PCNA monoubiquitination and recruitment of TLS polymerase eta, while also inhibiting SHPRH function. In contrast, MMS promotes the degradation of HLTF and the interactions of SHPRH with Rad18 and polymerase kappa. Our data not only suggest that cells differentially utilize HLTF and SHPRH for different forms of DNA damage, but also, surprisingly, that HLTF and SHPRH may coordinate the two main branches of PRR to choose the proper bypass mechanism for minimizing mutagenesis. Though the degradation of HLTF is required for the SHPRH-Rad18 interaction in MMS-damaged cells, knockdown of HLTF is not sufficient to induce SHPRH-Rad18 binding in undamaged cells. Thus, an unidentified factor, in addition to HLTF degradation, is required to fully activate SHPRH and Rad18 upon MMS damage. We have noticed that Rad18 is deubiquitinated after MMS treatment, and that this de-ubiquitination is correlated with the degree of Rad18-SHPRH interaction. Moreover, we show that promoting the ubiquitination of Rad18 has an inverse effect on the interaction with SHPRH both in vitro and in cells. Surprisingly, though, the ubiquitinated Rad18 shows a stronger self-interaction than the wild-type Rad18, opposite from the SHPRH binding results. As the zinc-finger motif of Rad18 has been previously shown to bind ubiquitin, this may be a logical mechanism to control the switch between Rad18 dimerization and its interaction with other proteins. Interestingly, ubiquitinated Rad18 appears to be inactive, not only from loss of its ability to interact with SHPRH, but also through the inability to form damage foci and suppress MMS-induced mutagenesis. Altogether, our data reveal a unique regulation of Rad18 through self-ubiquitination and dimerization. In summary, our studies have revealed a number of new mechanistic insights into the post-replication repair pathways in human cells, including the interesting conclusion that protein degradation, deubiquitination, and other key cell processes may be controlled in a DNA damage-specific manner.

    Heart disease is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the developed world. As such, significant amount of resources and energy are funneled into developing treatments and therapeutics. While genetically caused cardiovascular diseases manifest at the tissue level, the fundamental mechanism that triggers the secondary effects and tissue remodeling generally occurs at the protein level. It is therefore critical to understand the molecular changes on the basic biochemical and biophysical level and connect these to the cellular and developmental disease processes. One such cardiovascular disorder is hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or HCM, which has been estimated to affect approximately 1 in 500 individuals. It disproportionately affects young adults and is the leading cause of sudden cardiac death. Since the first case of genetically linked HCM was identified in the early 1990s, a significant amount of work has been done to understand the molecular mechanism of the disease. Mutations have been identified in the proteins comprising the contractile apparatus of the muscle, the sarcomere. One such protein is [beta]-cardiac myosin, which has been recognized as a significant culprit of genetically linked HCM (~30-50%). Many studies have been performed to understand how single point mutations can alter the enzymatic and mechanical properties of this motor protein, but there is no clear consensus about the molecular mechanism. This has been due mainly to the lack of available human [beta]-cardiac myosin and the use of non-human and non-[beta]-cardiac myosin. Non-human and non-[beta]-cardiac myosin from common animal models differ by >30 residues, and as clearly evident from the disease and from previous studies on myosin, a single amino acids mutation can significantly alter and disrupt myosin function. During my thesis work, I have performed the first biochemical and biophysical work in the field looking at cardiomyopathy mutations using human [beta]-cardiac myosin. I have shown that HCM-causing [beta]-cardiac myosin mutations result in a gain of function, increasing the power or work output of the myosin. I have also examined HCM-causing mutations in troponin T, a component of the thin filament regulatory unit, using human [beta]-cardiac myosin. In the muscle, the interaction of myosin and actin is regulated by calcium through the thin filament proteins, namely the troponin complex and tropomyosin. HCM-causing mutations in troponin T increase calcium sensitivity or the number of force-producing heads that can interact with actin, thereby also increasing force or power output in the muscle. My work not only sheds light on fundamental properties of thick and thin filament function in the human sarcomere and presents the first studies of HCM-causing mutants in a human background, it also establishes a new approach to the problem of cardiomyopathy that will be critical in truly understanding and targeting the disease.

    The tear film is the thin layer of fluid that covers the surface of the eye. While the functions of the tear film are numerous, the primary role is to protect the corneal surface. When an individual has dry eye disease the tear film breaks up and exposes the corneal epithelial cells, which leads to ocular irritation. The primary components of the outermost layer of the tear film are meibomian lipids, a mixture of long chain nonpolar lipids. Although this lipid layer is thought to play an important role in tear film stability, little is known about the structure and viscoelasticity of meibum, or how these properties relate to tear film stability in dry eye disease. The primary focus of this work was to understand how meibum behaves at an air-water interface to mimic the in vivo conditions of the tear film lipid layer. At room temperature meibum was found to form a predominantly elastic interfacial film, although the film became more fluid as it was heated to body temperature. Interfacial x-ray scattering at room temperature revealed ordered lattices and multilayers at high levels of compression that contributed to high elasticity. In bulk samples, small angle x-ray scattering identified two populations of lipid lamellar phases with unique melt behavior. Meibum collected from patients with meibomian gland dysfunction, a form of dry eye disease, contained the same crystalline phases; however, the prevalence of those phases was reduced indicating a quantifiable change in lipid composition. To ascertain whether meibum viscoelastic properties are relevant to tear film performance, the effects of surface elasticity on an advancing droplet were studied. While droplets covered with a Newtonian monolayer followed classical hydrodynamics, meibum and other insoluble surfactants with surface shear elasticity induced periodic stick-release of the contact line at low advancing velocities and non-ideal behavior at higher velocities. Finally, to explore how a water soluble surfactant may be used to repair a compromised lipid layer, the interactions between a poly(ethylene oxide)-poly(butylene oxide) block copolymer (EOBO) and a model phospholipid monolayer were studied. The lipids and EOBO remained phase separated at the interface, yet EOBO was able to restore the native lattice spacing and mechanical properties of the lipid monolayer, which could make it a valuable tool for a number of biological applications. Meibomian lipids are a complex natural extract with a number of remarkable properties. Although the lipids present in meibum are diverse, meibum can form an elastic interfacial film with ordered phases in bulk material or at an interface. We have shown a link between meibum structure and elasticity, which both depend on temperature.

    "Preface The Matlab programming environment uses Java for numerous tasks, including networking, data-processing algorithms, and graphical user-interface (GUI). Matlab's internal Java classes can often be easily accessed and used by Matlab users. Matlab also enables easy access to external Java functionality, either third-party or user-created. Using Java, we can extensively customize the Matlab environment and application GUI, enabling the creation of very esthetically pleasing applications. Unlike Matlab's interface with other programming languages, the internal Java classes and the Matlab-Java interface were never fully documented by The MathWorks (TMW), the company that manufactures the Matlab product. This is really quite unfortunate: Java is one of the most widely used programming languages, having many times as many programmers as Matlab. Using this huge pool of knowledge and components can significantly improve Matlab applications. As a consultant, I often hear clients claim that Matlab is a fine programming platform for prototyping, but is not suitable for real-world modern-looking applications. This book aimed at correcting this misconception. It shows how using Java can significantly improve Matlab program appearance and functionality and that this can be done easily and even without any prior Java knowledge. In fact, many basic programming requirements cannot be achieved (or are difficult) in pure Matlab, but are very easy in Java. As a simple example, maximizing and minimizing windows is not possible in pure Matlab, but is a trivial one-liner using the underlying Java codeʹ:"--Provided by publisher.

    Owing to improved understanding of biomechanics and tribology and advances in implant design and treatment technique, total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is considered a very successful treatment for osteoarthritic knees. Nevertheless, a significant minority of patients are unhappy with the outcome, complaining of pain, instability, swelling, or reduced range of motion. This book addresses the need for improved diagnostic and treatment guidelines for this challenging group of patients. The book opens by discussing the basics of TKA and the various causes of failure and pain. Diagnostic aspects are considered in detail, with attention to advances in clinical investigation, laboratory analysis, and, in particular, imaging techniques. Furthermore, state of the art diagnostic algorithms are presented that will assist in identifying the source of the problem in individual cases. Specific pathology-related treatment options, including conservative approaches and salvage and revision TKA strategies, are then explained, with identification of the pitfalls and key points of each treatment. Future perspectives are briefly considered, and a series of cases are presented that cover clinical scenarios frequently encountered in daily clinical practice. The evidence-based, clinically focused guidance provided in this book, written by internationally renowned experts, will assist surgeons in ensuring that patients with an unsatisfactory result of TKA receive the most effective management. The book will also be helpful for general practitioners, physiotherapists, industry technicians, and engineers.

    Demands for the protection of social rights, and health rights in particular, have become a distinctive feature of judicialization in Latin American countries, including Argentina. Although a growing number of studies have begun to document the new relationship between the courts and health rights generated after almost two decades of litigation, little is yet empirically known about the versatile struggles undertaken in domestic courts and their consequences beyond the judgments. More specifically, given the scarcity of domestic empirical explorations, much remains to be discovered about legal mobilization experiences and courts' roles in the adjudication of conflicts regarding the intersection of health policies and rights. This dissertation takes a step toward filling that gap by exploring a set of conceptual, theoretical, and methodological questions that are critical to advancing current debates on health and the role of courts in bringing justice and expanding the rule of law in Argentina. With that aim in mind, this dissertation proceeds in two stages. First, it offers a basic assessment of the context and magnitude of the judicialization of health in the country, relying on multiple secondary sources and descriptive statistics obtained from databases of court decisions and dockets generated for this dissertation. Second, to complement the broader picture, the project proposes a qualitative study of strands of health rights litigation, offering a process-based observation of diverse patterns of judicialization while helping identify and compare the broader impacts of courts' roles in adjudicating health rights demands. Through these narrative studies, this dissertation tells the story of how once-dormant health rights clauses have come to life through the work of litigants, judges, and policy makers. It also shows how, in the process of unleashing health rights, courts have played contradictory roles throughout the nonlinear trajectories of different patterns of judicialization that can be located along a spectrum in which an atomistic and routinized style of judicialization is at one extreme, a bureaucratizing form of judicialization is in the middle, and a cooperative style of judicialization is at the other extreme. Ultimately, throughout these rich and variegated experiences of judicialization, courts' adjudication of right-to-health claims has sometimes reinforced ineffective or unequal arrangements, while at other times exhibiting potentially transformative capacities.

    Every day across America, behavioral health problems in childhood and adolescence, from anxiety to violence, take a heavy toll on millions of lives. For decades the approach to these problems has been to treat them only after they've been identified--at a high and ongoing cost to young people, families, entire communities, and our nation. Now we have a 30-year body of research and more than 50 programs showing that behavioral health problems can be prevented. This critical mass of prevention science is converging with growing interest in prevention across health care, education, child psychiatry, child welfare, and juvenile justice. Together, we stand at the threshold of a new age of prevention. The challenge now is to mobilize across disciplines and communities to unleash the power of prevention on a nationwide scale. Proposes a grand challenge that will advance the policies, programs, funding, and workforce preparation needed to promote behavioral health and prevent behavioral health problems among all young people--including those at greatest disadvantage or risk, from birth through age 24. Within a decade, we can reduce the incidence and prevalence of behavioral health problems in this population by 20 percent from current levels through widespread policies and programs that will serve millions and save billions. Prevention is the best investment we can make, and the time to make it is now.

    "The Unpredictable Species argues that the human brain evolved in a way that enhances our cognitive flexibility and capacity for innovation and imitation. In doing so, the book challenges the central claim of evolutionary psychology that we are locked into predictable patterns of behavior that were fixed by genes, and refutes the claim that language is innate. Philip Lieberman builds his case with evidence from neuroscience, genetics, and physical anthropology, showing how our basal ganglia--structures deep within the brain whose origins predate the dinosaurs--came to play a key role in human creativity. He demonstrates how the transfer of information in these structures was enhanced by genetic mutation and evolution, giving rise to supercharged neural circuits linking activity in different parts of the brain. Human invention, expressed in different epochs and locales in the form of stone tools, digital computers, new art forms, complex civilizations--even the latest fashions--stems from these supercharged circuits." -- [Publisher-supplied data]

    Recent technological advances have allowed us to collect genomic data on an unprecedented scale, with the promise of revealing genetic variants, genes, and pathways disrupted in clinically relevant human traits. However, identifying functional variants and ultimately unraveling the genetics of complex disease from such data have presented significant challenges. With millions of genetic factors to consider, spurious associations and lack of statistical power are major hurdles. Further, we cannot easily assess functional roles even for known trait-associated variants, particularly for those that lie outside of protein-coding regions of the genome. To address these challenges in identifying the genetic factors underlying complex traits, we have developed probabilistic machine learning methods that leverage biological structure and prior knowledge. In this thesis, we describe four applications of such models. First, we present a method for reconstructing causal gene networks from interventional genetic interaction data in model organisms. Here, we are able to identify intricate functional dependencies among hundreds of genes affecting a complex trait. We have applied this method to understanding the genetics of protein folding in yeast, where we demonstrate ability to recapitulate the details, including ordering, of known pathways, and make novel functional predictions. Second, we present PriorNet, a method for incorporating gene network and path- way information into the analysis of population-level studies of genetic variation in human disease. PriorNet utilizes a flexible, Markov Random Field prior to propagate information between functionally related genes and related diseases, in order to improve statistical power in large-scale disease studies. We demonstrate a significant improvement in the discovery of disease-relevant genes in studies of three autoimmune diseases. Next, we extend the intuitions of PriorNet in a method for identifying interactions between genetic variants in human disease, to begin to understand how genes work together in complex disease processes. Our method, GAIT, leverages gene networks, network structure, and other patterns to adaptively prioritize candidate in- teractions for testing, and dramatically reduce the burden of multiple hypothesis correction to identify a large number of interactions in diverse human disease studies. Finally, we discuss the identification of functional variants on a large scale through the use of gene expression as a high-resolution cellular phenotype. We have sequenced RNA from 922 genotyped individuals to provide a direct window into the distribution, properties, and consequences of thousands of regulatory variants affecting diverse gene expression traits including splicing and allelic expression. From the identified variants, we also train a model, LRVM, for predicting regulatory consequences based on location and genomic properties of each variant.

    Subtypes define distinctive subgroups of objects found within a larger cohort; these subtypes can help domain experts define actionable recommendations for each subgroup to improve outcomes. With the relatively recent explosion of large datasets accompanied by large numbers of features, a popular way to define subtypes is unsupervised learning, or clustering, algorithms. Unfortunately, unsupervised learning algorithms have a serious drawback: there is no ground truth. While a set of clusters may correlate strongly with an outcomes variable, an outcomes, or response, variable, is not used in an unsupervised learning algorithm; this means that the accuracy of clusters derived from such algorithms, by nature, cannot be quantified. One way to ensure subtypes represent true signal is to conduct the clustering analysis on multiple datasets. However, there is a lack of methods for unsupervised learning across multiple datasets. In this dissertation, I propose novel methods for unsupervised clustering across multiple datasets, by finding a consensus across clusters derived from each individual dataset. I propose an algorithm, COINCIDE, that encompasses these novel methods; COINCIDE interprets each cluster as a node in a network. I apply COINCIDE to cancer gene expression and pathology datasets, and finally sepsis gene expression datasets, to illustrate the ability of COINCIDE to conduct unsupervised learning across multiple datasets to discover robust subtypes.

    There is now compelling evidence that the complexity of higher organisms correlates with the relative amount of non-coding RNA rather than the number of protein-coding genes. Previously dismissed as ""junk DNA"", it is the non-coding regions of the genome that are responsible for regulation, facilitating complex temporal and spatial gene expression through the combinatorial effect of numerous mechanisms and interactions working together to fine-tune gene expression. The major regions involved in regulation of a particular gene are the 5' and 3' untranslated regions and introns.

    The mechanisms and physiological functions of urea transport across biological membranes are subjects of long-standing interest. Recent advances in the molecular biology and physiology of urea transport have yielded new insights into how and why urea moves across cell membranes. In the last two decades, seven facilitated urea transporters (UT-A1-6 and UT-B) have been cloned, and their gene organization, protein crystal structure, expression localization and physiological functions in the tissues have been described. In recent years, the studies in urea transporter knockout mouse models suggest that urea transporters may be useful targets for drug discovery of selective inhibitors. The modulation of urea transport activity by pharmacological agents may provide novel treatments for hypertension, congestive heart failure and other fluid-retaining states. However, although urea represents about 40% of all urinary solutes in normal human urine, the handling of this solute in the tissues has been largely neglected in the past, and few clinical or experimental studies now report data about urea. Most recent physiological textbooks include chapters on water and electrolyte physiology but not a single chapter on urea. Our aim in writing this book is to stimulate further research in new directions by providing novel and provocative insights into further mechanisms and the physiological significance of urea metabolism and transport in mammals. The book provides a state-of-the-art report on the latest findings on urea transport and where the field is going. Although some older work is cited, the main focus is on advances made over the past 20 years with regard to the biophysics, genetics, protein structure, molecular biology, physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology of urea transport in mammalian cell membranes. These aspects are especially valid, as advances in our understanding of urea transporting mechanisms and physiology promise to yield new insights into biology and medicine.

    This book systematically summarizes the ideas and technologies used in urine proteome analysis. It argues that change is the core of biomarker definition since the body uses its homeostatic mechanisms to correct changes in the blood. This means that urine is probably a better source of biomarkers than blood. A roadmap to the urinary biomarker era is proposed, and researchers are reminded of the potential opportunities and risks in their study design. Kidney diseases are emphasized as they produce the most significant changes in urine. This book tries to show researchers and graduate students, who are in or entering the field, "all things considered" rather than "the current affair".

    Urology at a Glance is a concise, practical guide to diagnostic and therapeutic decision making. The book is divided into two parts. The first focuses on the pathway from symptom to diagnosis and covers the full range of symptoms commonly encountered by the urologist. Any particular symptom can be located within a matter of seconds, and in each case differential diagnosis is explained with the aid of a flow chart. The second part of the book is devoted to the pathway from diagnosis to therapy, with each short chapter devoted to a specific diagnosis. Basic information is provided on the disease in question, along with an outline of state of the art treatment options and possible complications. Again, flow charts are used to help the reader to reach the correct therapeutic decision in different circumstances. Numerous high-definition photographs and illustrations, many of them in color, are also included. The editors and authors are leading urological surgeons and oncologists and internationally recognized authorities in their fields. This book will be a great asset in every urologist?s office and will also prove invaluable for practitioners in related disciplines.

    "The United States is among the wealthiest nations in the world, but it is far from the healthiest. Although life expectancy and survival rates in the United States have improved dramatically over the past century, Americans live shorter lives and experience more injuries and illnesses than people in other high-income countries. The U.S. health disadvantage cannot be attributed solely to the adverse health status of racial or ethnic minorities or poor people: even highly advantaged Americans are in worse health than their counterparts in other, "peer" countries. In light of the new and growing evidence about the U.S. health disadvantage, the National Institutes of Health asked the National Research Council (NRC) and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to convene a panel of experts to study the issue. The Panel on Understanding Cross-National Health Differences Among High-Income Countries examined whether the U.S. health disadvantage exists across the life span, considered potential explanations, and assessed the larger implications of the findings. U.S. Health in International Perspective presents detailed evidence on the issue, explores the possible explanations for the shorter and less healthy lives of Americans than those of people in comparable countries, and recommends actions by both government and nongovernment agencies and organizations to address the U.S. health disadvantage"--Publisher's description.

    A forty-year tightening of funding for scientific research has meant that resources are increasingly directed toward applied or practical outcomes, with the intent of creating products of immediate value. In such a scenario, it makes sense to focus on the most identifiable and urgent problems, right? Actually, it doesn't. In his classic essay "The Usefulness of Useless Knowledge," Abraham Flexner, the founding director of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and the man who helped bring Albert Einstein to the United States, describes a great paradox of scientific research. The search for answers to deep questions, motivated solely by curiosity and without concern for applications, often leads not only to the greatest scientific discoveries but also to the most revolutionary technological breakthroughs. In short, no quantum mechanics, no computer chips. This brief book includes Flexner's timeless 1939 essay alongside a new companion essay by Robbert Dijkgraaf, the Institute's current director, in which he shows that Flexner's defense of the value of "the unobstructed pursuit of useless knowledge" may be even more relevant today than it was in the early twentieth century. Dijkgraaf describes how basic research has led to major transformations in the past century and explains why it is an essential precondition of innovation and the first step in social and cultural change.

    Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, subsequently referred to as pancreatic cancer, is one of the most deadly cancers with a five-year survival of only 5%. Typical treatment regimens include surgery and chemotherapy while targeted therapies are lacking. A better understanding of the underlying cancer biology may yield novel therapeutic targets. The field of genomics has transformed our ability to study cancer. Over the past two decades, microarray and sequencing based innovations have enabled biology to be carried out at the --omic scale (discussed further in Chapter 1). This dissertation employs --omic level analysis to query the differences between the pancreatic cancer genome and the normal human genome. First, high throughput structural characterizations were performed in order to annotate the mutated, rearranged, deleted, and amplified genes across seventy pancreatic cancers. These assays identified hundreds of candidate cancer genes. Among these candidates, SMURF1 was validated to be an oncogene (Chapter 2). Furthermore, various subunits of the SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complex were validated to be tumor suppressor genes (Chapter 3). While SMURF1 and SWI/SNF were validated individually, the other candidates from structural studies were evaluated in parallel shRNA competive growth screen. From this, we characterize nine genes further -- some previously known to play a role in cancer and some novel (Chapter 4). The sum total of all of this work is a much deeper understanding of the biology of pancreatic cancer, yielding many novel therapeutic targets and hopefully allowing scientists to gain a foothold in the fight against this disease.

    "The complex mathematical problems faced by scientists and engineers rarely can be solved by analytical approaches, so numerical methods are often necessary. There are many books that deal with numerical methods for scientists and engineers; their content is fairly standardized: solution of systems of linear algebraic equations and nonlinear equations, finding eigenvalues and eigenfunctions, interpolation and curve fitting, numerical differentiation and integration, optimization, solution of ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations, and Fourier analysis. Sometimes statistical analysis of data is included, as it should be. As powerful personal computers have become virtually universal on the desks of scientists and engineers, computationally intensive Monte Carlo methods are joining the numerical analysis armamentarium. If there are many books on these well-established topics, why am I writing another one? The answer is to propose and demonstrate the use of a language relatively new to the field: R. My approach in this book is not to present the standard theoretical treatments that underlie the various numerical methods used by scientists and engineers. There are many fine books and online resources that do that, including one that uses R: Owen Jones, Robert Maillardet, and Andrew Robinson. Introduction to Scientific Programming and Simulation Using R. Chapman & Hall/CRC, Boca Raton, FL, 2009.

    The Drosophila olfactory system is an excellent model to study how neural circuits develop their complex structure and precise connectivity. Olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) expressing the same odorant receptor, and thus sensing the same odorants, are scattered in the peripheral antenna and maxillary palp. Remarkably, these distributed ORNs expressing the same receptor converge their axons onto one discrete structural unit in the central brain termed a glomerulus. In each glomerulus, ORNs synapse with a single class of central projection neurons (PNs) that send their dendrites into one glomerulus and their axons to higher brain centers. Demonstrating this striking axonal specificity, the 1300 ORNs in the antenna expressing approximately 50 different odorant receptors segregate their axons into discrete 50 discrete glomeruli in the antennal lobe. This highly ordered olfactory circuit begs the question: how do ORN axons and PN dendrites achieve this remarkable level of convergence onto one of fifty glomeruli? My study of the Semaphorin protein family has revealed new cellular strategies for precise ORN axon and PN dendrite targeting. Semaphorins are highly conserved cell surface proteins that have been shown to function as neuronal "semaphores" to guide developing neurons. In ORNs, the transmembrane Sema-1a promotes axon-axon repulsion between two populations of ORNs to spatially restrict their targeting in the antennal lobe (Sweeney et al., 2007). In PNs, Sema-1a functions as a receptor to control PN dendrite targeting in a continuous molecular gradient (Komiyama et al., 2007). The secreted and highly homologous Sema-2a and Sema-2b produced by the ventromedial degenerating larval antennal lobe function in a countergradient as the Sema-1a ligand to repel dorsolateral PN dendrites (In preparation). Semaphorin function in Drosophila olfactory wiring demonstrates two novel strategies for neural circuit assembly: spatial cues from surrounding axons and from degenerating structures instruct precise targeting.

    Several methods of examining the structure and function of voltage-gated ion channels are described. The first part of this work involves synthetic small molecules based on the structure of (+)-saxitoxin, a marine neurotoxin. (+)-saxitoxin interacts with the pore of the voltage-gated sodium (NaV ) channel to prevent the passage of ions. A scaffold was designed to be modular, synthetically facile, and contain the functionality that had been implicated in the previous literature. Several members of this family of molecules were produced, and they were assayed for occlusion of sodium current (INa). The second part of this work examines the gating kinetics of voltage-gated potassium (KV) channels. 6-bromo-mercaptotryptamine (BrMT) is a marine neurotoxin that has been shown to alter the gating kinetics of KV channels. Specifically, BrMT affects the early, typically independent steps of KV gating by stabilizing the resting state of some number of the subunits. A family of small molecules was designed and synthesized that would examine the functional effects of different parts of the BrMT molecule. BrMT is a dimer containing three key functional groups: a halogenated indole, a pendant ethyl-amine, and a disulfide linker. Variance at all these positions was examined, and each had different effects. Notably, one of the variants, in which the disulfide linker was substituted for an oxy-bismethyl ether linker, affects KV gating in a different way from BrMT. Alternate models of gating in the presence of this novel analog are discussed.

    The ability to make specific perturbations to biological molecules in a cell or organism is a central experimental strategy in modern research biology. Chemical approaches to probe biological function have greatly contributed to the understanding of protein functions. While small-molecule inhibitors offer rapid and reversible control of protein functions, identification and development of specific inhibitors for every protein of interest remains a challenge. In the past decade, numerous technologies have been developed that combine genetic with chemical methods to create conditional protein control systems with impeccable specificity. These systems include inducible protein localization using chemical inducer of dimerization, such as rapamycin, and inducible protein stabilization system such as our destabilizing domain (DD) technology previously developed by L. Banaszynski. Highly specific, high-affinity protein-ligand interactions are key to their effectiveness. In this thesis, three technologies that utilize highly specific protein-ligand interactions are discussed. The first chapter of this thesis focuses on the development of a general technique in which the stability of a specific protein is regulated by a cell-permeable small molecule. Mutants of E. coli dihydrofolate reductase (ecDHFR) were engineered to have ligand-dependent stability, and when this destabilizing domain is fused to a protein of interest, the instability is conferred to the fused protein resulting in rapid degradation of the entire fusion protein. A small-molecule ligand trimethoprim (TMP) stabilized the destabilizing domain in a rapid, reversible and dose-dependent manner, and protein levels in the absence of TMP were barely detectable. The ability of TMP to cross the blood-brain barrier enabled the tunable regulation of YFP expressed rat striatum. The second chapter of this thesis describes the development of a technique in which a protein of interest is degraded in the presence of a ligand. In this system, we regulated the stability of a receptor protein of an E3 ligase complex using the previously developed destabilizing domains. A DD-fused receptor protein cannot recruit the substrate to the E3 ubiquitin ligase in the absence of ligand. Upon addition of ligand, the receptor protein is stabilized and can successfully promote ubiquitination and degradation of the substrate protein. We used HIV-1 Vif protein, a receptor protein of the Cul5 E3 ligase complex, and its substrate, human APOBEC3G. We were able to induce degradation of GFP fused APOBEC3G upon addition of ligand. Degradation of GFP occurred rapidly, tunably, and reversibly. The advantage of this system over the DD technology is that it does not require continuous administration of the ligand until the desired experimental window and is thus better suited for in vivo applications. By limiting the dosage to only during the knockout window, the cost of dosing is dramatically decreased and side effects from long-term administration of ligand can be minimized. The third and last chapter of this thesis describes an attempt to develop a new approach to induce genome modification at a specific site with high efficiency in mammalian cell lines. While there are several successful nuclease-based gene-targeting approaches that exist today, these technologies require extensive engineering and screening to isolate efficient and specific nucleases that bind to the target sites. Our strategy was to simplify the design of DNA targeting domains by using an oligonucleotide analogue, peptide nucleic acid (PNA). PNAs incorporate DNA bases on peptide backbones and make base-specific contacts with the target DNA site. The PNA domain is coupled to TMP, which then allows recruitment of the nuclease domain fused to ecDHFR. The nuclease domain is made up of a single-chain, pseudohomodimer FokI catalytic domain that non-specifically cleaves the DNA. We could not produce any recombination activity in cell. However, in vivo experiments revealed successful target DNA binding by the PNA, as well as TMP-PNA/ecDHFR-FokI binding.
