Principal Investigator(s): 
Kiemel, Timothy
Sponsor: National Science Foundation (NSF)
The goal of this project is to identify the plant and feedback for rhythmic human movement. The project team will approximate the dynamics near the limit cycle as a linear time-periodic system and describe the system ID problem in the frequency domain using harmonic transfer functions, infinite-...

Chin, Eva R.
Sponsor: Ariadne Diagnostics (via NIH - NCATS (National Center for Advancing Translational Services))
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a progressing and fatal neuromuscular disease affecting 1 in 3500 boys. The molecular cause of DMD is lack of the protein dystrophin in skeletal muscle. Despite knowing the molecular cause and the cellular events that underly this disease, there currently are no...

Sponsor: Henry M. Jackson Foundation
Individuals with a traumatic lower limb amputation to one limb (e.g. soldiers with blast injuries) have a greater risk of developing knee osteoarthritis (OA) in their intact limb, compared to their amputated limb or to the general non-amputee population. The sources of this disparity in knee OA...

Hagberg, James M.
Sponsor: American College of Sports Medicine
Studies suggest that the repair and maintenance of the vascular endothelium is critically dependent on circulating angiogenic cell (CAC) number and function. CACs accomplish their pro-angiogenic effects mainly through paracrine mechanisms. CACs have been used in autologous intra-coronary cell...
