    • A broad survey of hydraulic and mechanical safety in the xylem of conifers. 

      Bouche, Pauline S; Larter, Maximilien; Domec, Jean-Christophe; Burlett, Régis; Gasson, Peter; Jansen, Steven; Delzon, Sylvain (Journal of experimental botany, 2014-08)
      Drought-induced forest dieback has been widely reported over the last decades, and the evidence for a direct causal link between survival and hydraulic failure (xylem cavitation) is now well known. Because vulnerability ...
    • Injectable laminin-functionalized hydrogel for nucleus pulposus regeneration. 

      Francisco, Aubrey T; Mancino, Robert J; Bowles, Robby D; Brunger, Jonathan M; Tainter, David M; Chen, Yi-Te; Richardson, William J; ... (9 authors) (Biomaterials, 2013-10)
      Cell delivery to the pathological intervertebral disc (IVD) has significant therapeutic potential for enhancing IVD regeneration. The development of injectable biomaterials that retain delivered cells, promote cell survival, ...
    • Metallic Nanoislands on Graphene as Highly Sensitive Transducers of Mechanical, Biological, and Optical Signals. 

      Zaretski, Aliaksandr V; Root, Samuel E; Savchenko, Alex; Molokanova, Elena; Printz, Adam D; Jibril, Liban; Arya, Gaurav; ... (9 authors) (Nano Lett, 2016-02-10)
      This article describes an effect based on the wetting transparency of graphene; the morphology of a metallic film (≤20 nm) when deposited on graphene by evaporation depends strongly on the identity of the substrate supporting ...
