  • Publication number: 20160206615
    Abstract: The invention provides pharmaceutical formulations of inhibitors for poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) enzyme. The formulations can be used in the treatment and prevention of cancer as well as the treatment of neurotrauma and neurodegenerative diseases. The PARP inhibitor is delivered in the form of nanoparticles that provide efficient delivery of the inhibitor into cancer cells or other cells and release of the inhibitor within the cells. In treating cancer, the result is killing of tumor cells, whereas in treatment of neurotrauma and neurodegenerative disease, the result is preservation of cell function.

  • Publication number: 20160054329
    Abstract: An interchangeable sensor system is described, including: a microcantilever including a beam anchored at a first end, the beam being free to vibrate on another end, wherein a piezoelectric layer is deposited on a surface of the beam; an input configured to receive a voltage from a voltage source for applying voltage to the piezoelectric layer; and a resonating circuit including: the piezoelectric layer, configured as a capacitor of the resonant circuit; and one or more additional electrical elements; wherein the voltage source is configured to apply a first AC voltage under a first condition for actuating the microcantilever at a first mechanical resonating frequency of the microcantilever and a second AC voltage under a second condition for actuating the microcantilever at a second electrical resonating frequency of the resonating circuit. Method of using the sensor system is also described.

  • Publication number: 20110024719
    Abstract: Nanoelements such as single walled carbon nanotubes are assembled in three dimensions into a nanoscale template on a substrate by means of electrophoresis and dielectrophoresis at ambient temperature. The current-voltage relation indicates that strong substrate-nanotube interconnects carrying mA currents are established inside the template pores. The method is suitable for large-scale, rapid, three-dimensional assembly of 1,000,000 nanotubes per square centimeter area using mild conditions. Circuit interconnects made by the method can be used for nanoscale electronics applications.
