Patient reported distress can aid clinical decision making in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis: analysis of the PROFILE cohort (2018)
Other
Stewart, I., McKeever, T., Braybrooke, R., Oballa, E., Simpson, J. K., Maher, T. M., …Saini, G. (2018). Patient reported distress can aid clinical decision making in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis: analysis of the PROFILE cohort

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a progressive and fatal interstitial lung disease. We aimed to determine if patient response to a palliative assessment survey could predict disease progression or death. We undertook a cross-sectional study in a U...

Geometry alone influences stem cell differentiation in a precision 3D printed stem cell niche: (2018)
Other
Prina, E., Sidney, L., Tromayer, M., Moore, J., Liska, R., Bertolin, M., …Rose, F. R. (2018). Geometry alone influences stem cell differentiation in a precision 3D printed stem cell niche:

Stem cells within epithelial tissues reside in anatomical structures known as crypts that are known to contribute to the mechanical and chemical milieu important for function. To date, epithelial stem cell therapies have largely ignored the niche and... Read More about Geometry alone influences stem cell differentiation in a precision 3D printed stem cell niche:.

Occupiers’ liability: the enactment of ‘common law’ principles (2018)
Other
Bailey, S. (2018). Occupiers’ liability: the enactment of ‘common law’ principles. Unpublished in this form

This paper considers the development of the common law of occupier's liability and the processes that led to the enactment of, and the content of, the Occupier's Liability Acts of 1957 and 1984. [This paper first written April 2011. An edited ver... Read More about Occupiers’ liability: the enactment of ‘common law’ principles.

Gsmodutils: A python based framework for test-driven genome scale metabolic model development (2018)
Other
Gilbert, J. P., Pearcy, N., Norman, R., Millat, T., Winzer, K., King, J., …Twycross, J. (2018). Gsmodutils: A python based framework for test-driven genome scale metabolic model development

Motivation Genome scale metabolic models (GSMMs) are increasingly important for systems biology and metabolic engineering research as they are capable of simulating complex steady-state behaviour. Constraints based models of this form can include tho... Read More about Gsmodutils: A python based framework for test-driven genome scale metabolic model development.

Wireless bioelectronic nanosystems for intracellular communication (2018)
Other
Sanjuán-Alberte, P., Abayzeed, S. A., Fuentes-Domínguez, R., Alea-Reyesd, M. E., Clark, M., Hague, R., …Rawson, F. (2018). Wireless bioelectronic nanosystems for intracellular communication

In order for the field of bioelectronics to make an impact on healthcare, there is an urgent requirement for the development of “wireless” electronic systems to both sense and actuate cell behaviour. Herein we report the first example of an innovativ... Read More about Wireless bioelectronic nanosystems for intracellular communication.

Surface Plasmon Resonance Imaging of Excitable Cells (2018)
Other
Howe, C. L., Webb, K. F., Abayzeed, S. A., Anderson, D. J., Denning, C., & Russell, N. A. (2018). Surface Plasmon Resonance Imaging of Excitable Cells

Surface plasmons are highly sensitive to refractive index variations adjacent to the surface. This sensitivity has been exploited successfully for chemical and biological assays. In these systems, a surface plasmon resonance (SPR)-based sensor detect... Read More about Surface Plasmon Resonance Imaging of Excitable Cells.

Gaussian process emulation for discontinuous response surfaces with applications for cardiac electrophysiology models (2018)
Other
Ghosh, S., J. Gavaghan, D., & R. Mirams, G. Gaussian process emulation for discontinuous response surfaces with applications for cardiac electrophysiology models

Mathematical models of biological systems are beginning to be used for safety-critical applications, where large numbers of repeated model evaluations are required to perform uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis. Most of these models a... Read More about Gaussian process emulation for discontinuous response surfaces with applications for cardiac electrophysiology models.
