  4. How Dry am I? Exploring Biomimicry and Nanotechnology

    01 Dec 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Elizabeth Davenport, Nancy Healy

    Through a series of activities, students will explore superhydrophobic properties of materials. This inquiry based lesson leads them through activities that has them compare and contrast physical properties of superhydrophobic coated materials with uncoated materials. In the process they will...

  8. Powers of Ten with the Blue Morpho Butterfly

    09 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Nancy Healy, Marilyn Garza

    This activity is designed to help students understand the concept of scale and magnification when examining a Blue Morpho butterfly wing. The activity requires the use of a scanning electron microscope (SEM) but images are provided if there is no access to an SEM.

  9. Seeing Nano: Using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) to View Nano-size Objects

    02 Dec 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Samantha Andrews

    Nano-size objects are smaller than the wavelength of light and because of this they cannot be viewed with a light microscope.  Special tools are needed to see nanoscale objects, one of which is the scanning electron microscope. This activity will have students explore the types of images...

  10. [Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Frontoparietal traffic signals: A fast optical imaging study of preparatory dynamics in response mode switching

    20 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Pauline L. Baniqued

    Coordination between networks of brain regions is important for optimal cognitive performance, especially in attention demanding tasks. With the event-related optical signal (EROS; a measure of changes in optical scattering due to neuronal activity) we can characterize rapidly evolving network...

  14. [Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: Imaging Estrogen Receptors and Estrogen-Receptor Function in Breast Cancer by Positron Emission Tomography (PET): Improved Selection of Patients for Benefit from Endocrine Therapies

    09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: John A. Katzenellenbogen

    The growth of many breast cancers is regulated by estrogens, and these cancers can be treated effectively with endocrine therapies (ET). Identifying patients who will benefit from ET, however, continues to be challenging. Measurement of estrogen receptor (ER) levels in tumor biopsy samples using...

  15. [Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: T Cell Receptors For Potential Cancer Immunotherapy Applications: Single Chain T Cell Receptors Circumvent Mispairing with Endogenous TCR and Mediate T Cell Activity

    09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: David H. Aggen

    To improve the immune response to cancer, gene therapy with tumor-specific T cell-receptors (TCRs) provides an attractive approach to effectively arm patients T cells for tumor cell destruction. A high-affinity TCR specific for an antigenic peptide-major histocompatibility complex (pepMHC) can...

  16. [Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: The Man with the Crateriform Lesion: Advanced Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Joseph Brancheck

    Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common type of skin cancer in the United States and accounts for 20 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers; in addition, it is the second most common cancer overall in Caucasians. Due to an aging population and increasing sun exposure, the...
