    • A 3D-printed, functionally graded soft robot powered by combustion 

      Bartlett, Nicholas Warren; Tolley, M. T.; Overvelde, Johannes Tesse bastiaan; Weaver, J; Mosadegh, B; Bertoldi, Katia; Whitesides, George McClelland; Wood, Robert J. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2015)
      Roboticists have begun to design biologically inspired robots with soft or partially soft bodies, which have the potential to be more robust and adaptable, and safer for human interaction, than traditional rigid robots. ...
    • Childhood Leukemia: Electric and Magnetic Fields as Possible Risk Factors 

      Brain, Joseph David; Kavet, Robert I.; McCormick, David L.; Poole, Charles; Silverman, Lewis Barry; Smith, Thomas J.; Valberg, Peter A.; Van Etten, R. A.; Weaver, James (Environmental Health Perspectives, 2003)
      Numerous epidemiologic studies have reported associations between measures of power-line electric or magnetic fields (EMFs) and childhood leukemia. The basis for such associations remains unexplained. In children, acute ...
    • Transport Lattice Models of Heat Transport in Skin with Spatially Heterogeneous, Temperature-Dependent Perfusion 

      Gowrishankar, T. R.; Stewart, Donald A.; Martin, Gregory T.; Weaver, James C. (BioMed Central, 2004)
      Background: Investigation of bioheat transfer problems requires the evaluation of temporal and spatial distributions of temperature. This class of problems has been traditionally addressed using the Pennes bioheat equation. ...
