Nanoparticles are widely used to fabricate structures, photonic devices, dendrimers and biomimetic structures, at supramolecular scales. Some of the applications are controlled drug release in biomedical applications, delivery of active ingredients in cosmetics, and studying new material properties (optical and thermal characteristics) in materials science. The most common nanospheres used in biomedical applications are formed by self-assembly of amphiphilic block copolymers. At the New Jersey (...)

During the middle Miocene Earth’s climate transitioned from warm to cold with the development of permanent ice sheets on Antarctica. The middle Miocene climatic optimum (MCO; 17-14.7 million years ago) was a peak warm phase characterized by global mean sea surface temperatures ~3-4°C warmer than in the modern ocean. Surprisingly, only a few surface ocean temperature records have been generated for this important climate transition and essentially none for the North Atlantic, where deep water is (...)

The long-term goals of our research program are to identify the molecular mechanisms and neural circuitry underlying antidepressant treatment response or resistance and ultimately to identify novel treatments, determine whether patients will respond to treatments, and develop personalized treatment strategies. To address this question, we study depression and anxiety in mouse models that offer an appropriate framework to assess treatment resistance with face, construct, and predictive validity. (...)

Plastid genes in tobacco are transcribed by a plastid encoded RNA polymerase (PEP) that is related to the multisubunit RNA polymerases of eubacteria. We designed a synthetic transcription system in which promoters from the bacterium Bacillus subtilis drive the expression of a gfp reporter gene encoding a green fluorescent protein (GFP). The gfp gene is not expressed in tobacco chloroplasts, because the tobacco sigma factors do not recognize the B. subtilis promoters. The objective will be to test (...)

Membranes play an important role in the behavior of batteries. In some cases, there are important implications in transport behavior that can be influenced by the presence of an organic constituent that potentially forms an interface with the inorganic membrane. This membrane can be amorphous silica (glass) and the role of this organic-inorganic interface on proton transport in aqueous solutions is problematic. To address this problem in the Aresty project, we will use molecular dynamics simulations (...)
