• Heat shock-induced apoptosis 

    Mahajan, Indra Maria (2013-12)
    Apoptosis is a conserved program of cell death that promotes organism homeostasis in all stages of life. Two main pathways activate caspases, which are cysteinyl-aspartate proteases that execute apoptosis. The extrinsic ...
  • Impact of intensity and body temperature on cardiovascular responses to exercise 

    Trinity, Joel Douglas (2009-12)
    These studies investigated the impact of intensity and body temperature on performance and cardiovascular regulation during high intensity and prolonged exercise. In study 1, polyphenol antioxidant supplementation proved ...
  • Mechanisms of heat stress- and obesity-induced reductions in orthostatic tolerance 

    Lee, Joshua Floyd (2013-08)
    These studies investigated 1) mechanisms underlying the well-established reduction in orthostatic tolerance (OT) that occurs in humans during heat stress (HS) relative to normothermia (NT) with particular focus on determining ...
  • RF/microwave absorbing nanoparticles and hyperthermia 

    Cook, Jason Ray (2009-12)
    The primary purpose of this work was to evaluate the capability of nanoparticles to transform electromagnetic energy at microwave frequencies into therapeutic heating. Targeted nanoparticles, in conjunction with microwave ...
