    • Blast-induced phenotypic switching in cerebral vasospasm 

      Alford, Patrick W.; Dabiri, Borna Esfahani; Goss, Josue; Hemphill, Matthew Allen; Brigham, Mark Daniel; Parker, Kevin Kit (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2011)
      Vasospasm of the cerebrovasculature is a common manifestation of blast-induced traumatic brain injury (bTBI) reported among combat casualties in the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Cerebral vasospasm occurs more frequently, ...
    • Cyclic Strain Induces Dual-Mode Endothelial-Mesenchymal Transformation of the Cardiac Valve 

      Balachandran, Kartik; Alford, Patrick W.; Wylie-Sears, Jill; Goss, Josue; Grosberg, Anna; Bischoff, Joyce E.; Aikawa, Elena; Levine, Robert A.; Parker, Kevin Kit (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2011)
      Endothelial-mesenchymal transformation (EMT) is a critical event for the embryonic morphogenesis of cardiac valves. Inducers of EMT during valvulogenesis include VEGF, TGF-β1, and wnt/β-catenin (where wnt refers to the ...
    • A Possible Role for Integrin Signaling in Diffuse Axonal Injury 

      Hemphill, Matthew Allen; Dabiri, Borna Esfahani; Gabriele, Sylvain; Kerscher, Lucas; Franck, Christian; Goss, Josue; Alford, Patrick W.; Parker, Kevin Kit (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2011)
      Over the past decade, investigators have attempted to establish the pathophysiological mechanisms by which non-penetrating injuries damage the brain. Several studies have implicated either membrane poration or ion channel ...
    • A Simple Model for Nanofiber Formation by Rotary Jet-Spinning 

      Mellado, Paula; McIlwee, Holly Alice; Badrossamay, Mohammad R.; Goss, Josue; Mahadevan, Lakshminarayanan; Parker, Kevin Kit (AIP Publishing, 2011)
      Nanofibers are microstructured materials that span a broad range of applications from tissue engineering scaffolds to polymer transistors. An efficient method of nanofiber production is rotary jet-spinning (RJS), consisting ...
