Novel Serum Markers for the Diagnosis of Concussions and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (HDL particles size and with combination with S100B)
Applications:This invention offers novel serum markers that can be used to diagnose mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) in a time- and cost-efficient fashion. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects over one million patients each year in the United States. Nearly 90% of these injuries are classified as mTBI or concussion, which leads to subtle cognitiv...

Photoacoustic Imaging Using a Versatile Acoustic Lens
Applications:Photoacoustic imaging (also called optoacoustic or thermoacoustic imaging) has the potential to image animal or human organs with simultaneous high contrast and high spatial resolution. The photoacoustic signal is small and needs a mechanism to focus it on an image plane without degradation. This technology improves the signal to noise...

Retinal Imaging with Adaptive Optics Optical Coherence Tomography (AO-OCT)
Adaptive optics is used in optical coherence tomography (OCT) to provide very high axial resolution in a non-invasive "optical sectioning" technique for imaging at various depths within living human tissue. In the current commercial application of OCT for retinal imaging, the transverse resolution is limited by the intrinsic ocular aberra...

Improving Vision and the Resolution of Retinal Images by Measuring and Correcting the Wave Aberration of the Eye
This describes the use of wavefront measurement and adaptive optics to correct all the aberrations of the human eye.ApplicationsWavefront measurement of all the aberrations in the human eye can make possible correction of vision which goes beyond conventional spectacles and contact lenses. This correction of higher order aberrations can be applie...

Mouse Model of Osteoarthritis: Over-Expression of Smurf2 in Cartilage to Induce Disease and Over-expression of Smurf1 as a Potential Therapeutic Strategy
Applications:We have generated col2-promoter-Smad ubiquitin regulatory factor2 (col2-Smurf2) transgenic mice which possess a loss of TGFß signaling and display each of above characteristics, thus displaying a phenotype more representative of the disease process. Furthermore, the over-expression of Smurf2 in cartilage that has been induced in...
