  3. [Illinois] Neural Mechanisms of Voice Control

    28 Jun 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Chuck Larson

    Accurate vocal production relies on several factors including sensory feedback and the ability to predict future challenges to the control processes. Repetitive patterns of perturbations in sensory feedback by themselves elicit implicit expectations in the vocal control system regarding the...

  4. [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...

  5. [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...
