    Abstract:

    Abstract Background Persistent disparities in academic performance may result from a confluence of adverse exposures accruing disproportionately to specific subpopulations.

    Objective Our overarching objective was to investigate how multiple exposures experienced over time affect early childhood educational outcomes. We were specifically interested in whether there were: racial/ethnic disparities in prevalence of adverse exposures; racial/ethnic disparities in associations observed between ad…

    Abstract:

    Background Several studies have reported environmental disparities regarding exposure to concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). Public health implications of environmental justice from the intensive livestock industry are of great concern in North Carolina (NC), USA, a state with a large number and extensive history of CAFOs.

    Objectives We examined disparities by exposure to CAFOs using several environmental justice metrics and considering potentially vulnerable subpopulations.

    Abstract:

    Summary What is already known about this topic?

    Although various implementation strategies for SARS-CoV-2 testing on college and university campuses have been described, little has been published regarding successful responses to COVID-19 outbreaks on campus.

    What is added by this report?

    In response to a COVID-19 outbreak on a university campus in August 2020, rapid implementation of multiple measures, including aggressive testing, tracing, and isolation; enhanced data systems; and commun…

    Abstract:

    Post-war Sierra Leone has experienced a population explosion that has raised questions among rural farmers about the relationship between family size and poverty. Agricultural decline and the high cost of schooling are not prompting parents to articulate a desire for smaller families; rather, they highlight that the uncertainty around articulating the “right” number of children is unresolvable because the ability to send children to school is predicated on increasing agricultural outputs that…

    Abstract:

    The opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) produces several redox-Active phenazine metabolites, including pyocyanin (PYO) and phenazine-1-carboxamide (PCN), which are electron carrier molecules that also aid in virulence. In particular, PYO is an exclusive metabolite produced by P. aeruginosa, which acts as a virulence factor in hospital-Acquired infections and is therefore a good biomarker for identifying early stage colonization by this pathogen. Here, we describe the…

    Abstract:

    This article presents a case study in which one library designated Product Owners to steer a website redesign project. The Product Owner, commonly used in agile approaches to software development, plays an important leadership role in the development process. In the case described here, two faculty librarians were selected to co-lead the project. This article outlines the benefits of using Product Owners and the factors that led to the two librarians being put on the project. The authors exp…

    Abstract:

    We present the results of acid-base experiments performed at the single ion (H+ or OH-) limit in ∼6 aL volume nanopores incorporating electrochemical zero-mode waveguides (E-ZMWs). At pH 3 each E-ZMW nanopore contains ca. 3600H+ ions, and application of a negative electrochemical potential to the gold working electrode/optical cladding layer reduces H+ to H2, thereby depleting H+ and increasing the local pH within the nanopore. The change in pH was quantified by tracking the intensity of fluo…

    Abstract:

    NEA nanopores. Such selectively transported and confined ions are detected by using a 100 nm gap dual-ring nanoelectrode structure capable of enhancing current output by efficient redox cycling with an amplification factor >102. In addition, BCP@NEAs exhibit extraordinary pH-gated ion selectivity, resulting in a 3380-fold current difference between anion and cation probes at pH 3.0. This hierarchically organized BCP-gated NEA system can serve as a template for the development of other stim…

    Abstract:

    Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are a common complication of diabetes that are recalcitrant to healing due to persistent inflammation. The majority of DFUs have bacterial biofilms, with Staphylococcus epidermidis as a predominant bacterium, requiring infection control with antibiotics before treatment of the wound. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) play roles in the pathology and repair of DFUs. However, defining the roles of the 24 human MMPs has been challenging due to the presence of three form…

    Abstract:

    Tissue engineered cardiac patches have great potential as a therapeutic treatment for myocardial infarction (MI). However, for successful integration with the native tissue and proper function of the cells comprising the patch, it is crucial for these patches to mimic the ordered structure of the native extracellular matrix and the electroconductivity of the human heart. In this study, a new composite construct that can provide both conductive and topographical cues for human induced pluripot…
