    Abstract:

    This report was developed under a DARPA contract for topic Atoms to products. Two primary goals were addressed in this project. In Focus Area 1 (Assembly Development) the goal was to assemble a 10 μm microelement consisting of an anisotropic lattice of ~5000 (~100 nm) dielectric nanoparticles (NPs) embedded in a polymer electrolyte. Successful completion of the objectives of this goal required that NPs be spatially located with nm-scale precision in a polymer matrix at scales up to ~10 μm (to…

    Abstract:

    The presenters will outline efforts to create a unified discovery platform for digital collections from libraries, archives, and museums. They will guide attendees through the process of designing harmonized metadata profiles for these related but very different domains, including solutions for conciliating controlled vocabularies. They will discuss the software stack’s approach to moving the harmonized data from varied back-end systems to a singular point from which they build out multiple s…

    Abstract:

    The FAIR Hackathon Workshop for Mathematics and the Physical Sciences (MPS) February 27-28, 2019 in Alexandria, Virginia brought together forty-four stakeholders in the physical sciences community to share skills, tools and techniques to FAIRify research data. As one of the first efforts of its kind in the US, the workshop offered participants a way to engage with FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) Data and metrics in the context of a hackathon. The workshop wa…

    Abstract:

    In recent years, the Hesburgh Libraries at the University of Notre Dame have developed and sustained a partnership with our campus student wellness center (The McDonald Center for Student Well-Being - aka “McWell”) that includes several programs designed to promote overall physical, mental and emotional health for our users and our library staff. Our partnership began in 2016 with the introduction of McWell’s “Let’s Talk” service (https://ucc.nd.edu/lets-talk/), which is a program d…

    Abstract:

    Since the publication of the “FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship” (Wilkinson et al., 2016), a wide-variety of sciences, mathematics, and other data-intensive fields have utilized the principles to promote reusability of data and ensure the long-term preservation of valuable outputs. In particular, domain experts and leading researchers have organized hackathons and sprints to define FAIR for their specific domains. Similarly, these domain experts have creat…

    Abstract:

    Fluorescence microscopy has enabled a dramatic development in modern biology. Due to its inherently weak signal, fluorescence microscopy is not only much noisier than photography, but also presented with Poisson-Gaussian noise where Poisson noise, or shot noise, is the dominating noise source. To get clean fluorescence microscopy images, it is highly desirable to have effective denoising algorithms and datasets that are specifically designed to denoise fluorescence microscopy images. While su…

    Abstract:

    The last decade has seen the growth of data sets that are not only extremely large, but also often unstructured and very dynamic, with the desire to extract not just specific facts about specific entities but also relationships between possibly arbitrary entities. Graphs have emerged as a valuable and productive paradigm for expressing such problems, and there has been an explosion in new graph algorithms, graph query languages, and graph engines that perform such computations. However, given…

    Abstract:

    This report reflects the deliberations and conclusions of an NSF-wide Workshop to explore the prospects for a common response to the requirements for public access to research data. Representatives of almost all of the NSF Directorates convened in Alexandria, VA, February 22 and 23, 2018, to review a diverse and multi-disciplinary collection of projects and workshops that have been conducted in the recent past. All of these activities were focused on aspects of public access to research data,…

    Abstract:

    The process of moving digitized and born-digital materials from selection to recovery, discovery, and preservation, was ambiguous at Notre Dame, as a “favor system” had become the norm. To address the issue, the Digital Collections Workflow (DCW) team, comprised of individuals from units across the library, developed workflows based on representative and adaptable use cases. This collaborative process, fueled by shared experience, resulted in a low- tech “case manager” approach that ensures p…

    Mastery Enhancement Therapy Improves Self-Efficacy, Depression, and Adjustment for Cancer Patients

    Raymond C. Nairn Thomas V. Merluzzi

    University of Notre Dame

    Mastery Enhancement Therapy (MET), which was developed by the authors, integrates solution focused therapy (Lindforss & Magnusson, 1997), self-regulation theory (Carver & Scheier, 1998), and self-efficacy theory (Bandura, 1997). We hypothesized that cancer patients who received MET would improve self-efficacy for coping wi…

    Abstract:

    Abstract This study investigated the effectiveness of a treatment, based on self-regulation theory, to enhance the coping self-efficacy of persons with cancer. The intervention, which is called Mastery Enhancement Therapy (MET), is based on Solution Focused Therapy. MET focuses on mastery experiences to improve the participants’ self-efficacy for coping. The participants, who volunteered for the study, were selected based their less-than-average coping self-efficacy scores and were randomly a…

    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…
