    Abstract:

    Lead exposure is a major health hazard affecting children and their growth and is a concern in many urban areas around the world. One such city in the United States (US), South Bend Indiana, gained attention for its high levels of lead in blood and relatively low testing rates for children. We assessed current lead screening practices in South Bend and the surrounding St. Joseph County (SJC). The 2005–2015 lead screening data included 18,526 unique children. Lead screening rates ranged from 4…

    Abstract:

    In cancer and all biomedical researches, we always need a microscope with better imaging precision, speed, functionality, and depth, so that the diagnostics and treatments of cancer and other diseases can be accurate, fast, and noninvasive. However, conventional fluorescence microscopes cannot satisfy these needs due to physical limits on resolution, speed, information, and depth. In this work, we aim to overcome these limits using novel super-resolution microscopy and high-speed quantitative…

    Abstract:

    Super-resolution microscopy is broadening our in-depth understanding of cellular structure. However, super-resolution approaches are limited, for numerous reasons, from utilization in longer-term intravital imaging. We devised a combinatorial imaging technique that combines deconvolution with stepwise optical saturation microscopy (DeSOS) to circumvent this issue and image cells in their native physiological environment. Other than a traditional confocal or two-photon microscope, this approac…

    Abstract:

    Lead exposure in SJC continues to be a persistent, complex public health issue. Data released in December 2016 showed that census tract 6 in South Bend had the highest rates of EBLL in the state of Indiana. Because lead exposure can produce significant cognitive and physiological damage even at very low levels of exposure, immediate action was required. Understanding what the epidemiologic profile of lead in SJC was among the first steps taken to address this issue. The St. Joseph Coun…

    Abstract:

    Obesity rates in the U.S. for both children and adults are alarmingly high, particularly for those in low-income households. The current project, a partnership between Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties Head Start Consortium and the University of Notre Dame’s William J. Shaw Center for Children and Families, focused on reducing obesogenic home environments for low-income families. Focusing on home environments, particularly for young children, is important because research shows that mothers are…

    Description:

    The Mexican patent database collects data on all patents issued in Mexico from roughly 1840 to the onset of the Mexican Revolution in 1911, totaling approximately thirteen thousand five hundred (13,500) discrete patent records. At present, this is the most comprehensive record of patents issued by Mexican governments during the nineteenth century. There is no single archival or published source that contains a comprehensive list or data on Mexican patents issued over the course of the long …
