This article describes the structure of academic discussions during the implementation of a literacy curriculum in the upper elementary grades. The authors examine the quality of academic discussion, using existing discourse ...
• #### Academic Freedom and Political Change: American Lessons ﻿

(Hong Kong University Press, 2010)
• #### Academic Freedom, Private-Sector Focus, and the Process of Innovation ﻿

(RAND Corporation, 2008)
We develop a model that clarifies the respective advantages and disadvantages of academic and private-sector research. Rather than relying on lack of appropriability or spillovers to generate a rationale for academic ...
• #### Accelerated Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging Using Radial Acquisition with Compressed Sensing ﻿

(2012-12-13)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique that can visualize internal organs for examination and diagnosis. It is non-invasive and ionizing radiation-free, and provides good contrast between different ...
• #### Accelerated Computational Discovery of High-Performance Materials for Organic Photovoltaics by Means of Cheminformatics ﻿

(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2011)
In this perspective we explore the use of strategies from drug discovery, pattern recognition, and machine learning in the context of computational materials science. We focus our discussion on the development of donor ...
• #### Accelerated Detection of Mycolactone Production and Response to Antibiotic Treatment in a Mouse Model of Mycobacterium ulcerans Disease ﻿

(Public Library of Science, 2014)
Diagnosis of the neglected tropical disease, Buruli ulcer, can be made by acid-fast smear microscopy, specimen culture on mycobacterial growth media, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and/or histopathology. All have drawbacks, ...
• #### Accelerated free breathing ECG triggered contrast enhanced pulmonary vein magnetic resonance angiography using compressed sensing ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2014)
Background: To investigate the feasibility of accelerated electrocardiogram (ECG)-triggered contrast enhanced pulmonary vein magnetic resonance angiography (CE-PV MRA) with isotropic spatial resolution using compressed ...
• #### Accelerated Heterologous Prime-boost Adenovirus Vector-based SIV Vaccine in Neonatal Rhesus Monkeys ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2012)
• #### Accelerated Loss of TCR Repertoire Diversity in Common Variable Immunodeficiency ﻿

(AAI, 2016)
Although common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) has long been considered as a group of primary Ab deficiencies, growing experimental data now suggest a global disruption of the entire adaptive immune response in a segment ...
• #### Accelerated Postnatal Growth Increases Lipogenic Gene Expression and Adipocyte Size in Low–Birth Weight Mice ﻿

(American Diabetes Association, 2009)
OBJECTIVE: To characterize the hormonal milieu and adipose gene expression in response to catch-up growth (CUG), a growth pattern associated with obesity and diabetes risk, in a mouse model of low birth weight (LBW). ...
• #### Accelerated Reduction in $SO_2$ Emissions from the U.S. Power Sector Triggered by Changing Prices of Natural Gas ﻿

(American Chemical Society, 2012)
Emissions of sulfur dioxide ($SO_2$) from the U.S. power sector decreased by 24% in 2009 relative to 2008. The Logarithmic Mean Divisia Index (LMDI) approach was applied to isolate the factors responsible for this decrease. ...
• #### Accelerated three-dimensional free-breathing first pass cardiac perfusion at 1.5T ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2013)
• #### Accelerated Weight Gain Among Children During Summer Versus School Year and Related Racial/Ethnic Disparities: A Systematic Review ﻿

(Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2014)
Introduction: The objective of this study was to compile and summarize research examining variations in weight gain among students during the summer in comparison to the school year, with a focus on racial/ethnic disparities ...
