This is a novel seedless floating growth technique for synthesis of a variety of hybrid nanostructures on graphene, primarily for electronic and optoelectronic applications. 

This method utilizes a novel solid catalyst made specifically for olefin epoxidation. The catalyst utilizes a base in order to allow hydrogen peroxide to be utilized as an oxidant.  Further the system allows for a constant flow of feedstock to flow through the catalyst with minimal leaching of the metal from the catalyst allowing for a longer life of the catalyst.

Most ZnO-nanostructure devices are fabricated using time-consuming nanomanipulation or one-by-one fabrication techniques, making them unattractive for large-scale production.  Despite advantages in manufacturing cost and scalability, solutions-based processing has not produced high performing ZnO thin-film devices.  This novel solutions-based process produces ZnO devices with shorter response times, lower device biases, and high light sensitivity.

This invention provides an improved method for producing a novel interfacing capillary device that is less costly and more durable than existing sheathless devices.  This simplified production method does not require sample dilution, etching, or precision hand tools, and is automated and reproducible.  

Regenerating and repairing individual organs and tissues for a single patient requires mass quantities of the patient’s own adult stem cells. Mass production of adult stem cells for therapeutic applications is highly limited due to the fact that adult stem cells have a limited shelf life when isolated from primary tissues of humans and animals. The act of removing adult stem cells from their original environment is traumatic and has the potential to induce changes or negative effects. Furthermore, the ability to grow adult stem cells in environments that mimic the original host tissue are limited. Adult stem cells lose “stemness” characteristics and the ability to divide and differentiate as adult stem cells are maintained and dissociated (passaged) from growth substrates, as is current practice.

This invention describes the first selective inhibitor of heat shock protein 90 kDa beta (Hsp90β). The invented inhibitor selectively binds to the N-terminus of Hsp90β and may be developed for the treatment of cancers. The inhibitor was developed based on the sequence alignment of the N-terminal ATP-binding domains of Hsp90α and Hsp90β complexed with a non-selective Hsp90 inhibitor, which revealed Hsp90β-specific residues that were key to exploit the selectivity of the new inhibitor.

Structural modification of a non-selective aminocyclohexanol-based heat shock protein 90 KDa (Hsp90) inhibitor led to a highly selective inhibitor of glucose regulated protein 94 kDa (Grp94). The new Grp94-selective inhibitor can be used to develop an effective therapy for the treatment of metastatic cancer and/or primary open angle glaucoma (POAG).
