      This photograph was taken in Bariloche, Argentina on the shores of Lago Nanhuel Huapi. Shown in the foreground is Poison Hemlock (Conium maculatum), an invasive plant (native to Europe) that spreads due to human activity ...
    • The Art of Adamantane Self-assembly 

      Xue, Yong (2009)
      Studying this picture is not just doing research of molecules but also enjoying an art work of nature. If you are asking what the block of the interesting shape in the picture is at your first glimpse, your researching and ...
    • Artificially created cortical functional blood unit 

      Marrinan, Thomas; Gould, Ian (2012)
      Many questions regarding cerebral hemodynamics and control of cerebral blood flow remain unanswered due to the complex architecture of the cerebral vascular network. The cortical blood supply is managed by functional blood ...
    • Atomic and electronic structure of Ti substitution in Ca3Co4O9 

      Hu, Xuan; Phillips, Patrick J; Mazumdar, Dipanjan; Idrobo, Juan Carlos; Kolesnik, Stanislaw; Gupta, Arunava (American Institute of Physics, 2016-11)
      We examine the role of Ti doping in the incommensurately layered thermoelectric oxide material Ca3Co4O9 (CCO). The measured Seebeck coefficient of S = 135 µV /K in Ti-doped CCO thin films of composition Ca3Co3.8Ti0.2O9 ...
    • The atomic resolution view of the nano-world 

      Zhao, Yuan (2011)
      "The research I have done at UIC is using the Scanning Transmission Electron Microscope (STEM) to characterize the nano materials, such as the Mn promoted Co-based Fischer-Tropsch (FT) nano-catalyst on Ti support. The STEM ...
    • Attack of the Macrophages: Flying Through Multiple Sclerosis 

      Klein, Stephanie (2011)
      "Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system in which the body’s immune system attacks the myelin (fatty insulating sheaths) surrounding nerve fibers. The resultant damage to the nervous ...
    • Auditory Ossicles 

      Conklin, Josephine (2010)
      "Anatomy is messy. The human body is not filled with neat blue veins and bright yellow nerves; most structures are densely packed and confusingly tangled around similar-looking things. The conundrum of the medical artist ...
    • The Autonomous Plan II 

      Hiller, Alysen (2011)
      "The conventions and intentions of an architectural drawing are universally understood. By today’s standards, what is expected of a design submission, professionally or within an academic setting, are highly composed ...
    • Avatar ‚Äì A Virtual Human 

      Lee, Sangyoon (2010)
      The research project LifeLike aims to develop a graphical computer interface called an avatar. My research has focused on creating a visually compelling digital version of a real human, Dr. Alexander Schwarzkopf, who is a ...
    • Barbarians at the Gate 

      Barry, Sheila (2008)
      My research examines the roles of different cells mediating sexual transmission of HIV in male genital tissue. Due to their proximity to the tissue surface, I am particularly interested in Langerhans cells (LCs), an ...
    • Bartlett Incusion 

      Guerguis, Maged Samir (2013)
      "Incusion, as an architectural technique with political potential, can be understood as a method for describing with a present form a figure that is absent, as a singular shape that results from the intersection of ...
    • Bee Pantaloons 

      Raduski, Andrew (2017)
      Pollination biology of the wild relatives of cultivated tomatoes (an eminently important group) is largely unstudied in their native habitats. In the course of my thesis research, our expedition documented floral visitors ...
    • Bella Donna 

      Cai, Geping (2010)
      "One of Van Gogh’s masterpieces? This is part of the leaf surface of the herb Belladonna under Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). As its name gives, the belladonna leaf epidermis is wrinkled with these velvety swirls, ...
    • Beyond the Naked Eye 

      Rahman, Mohammad (2010)
      This image illuminates the contours and difference in densities of a seemingly contourless and homogeneously uniform hydrogel. The image is a fluorescence composite of three wavelengths that allow for the boundaries and ...
    • Bifurcation 

      Arko, Charles (2009)
      The drawing was created to explore new geometric relationships based on linework which converges and “bifurcates.” The lines converge at the center of the page, then bifurcate outward at the edges, to create areas of ...
    • Biomimics 

      Chien, May-Zu (2014)
      Bio-design uses visual communication to transfer abstract or conceptual ideas from biological systems into design. Bio-design includes patterns and shapes of natural elements. Patterns generate a continuous stream of objects ...
    • Blurring the Line 

      Carlson, Gordon (2010)
      Project LifeLike is an attempt to create realistic and emotive avatars for computer systems. While computer graphics generate good looking characters, the ability of an avatar to express genuine emotion remains difficult. ...
    • Bone Collector/ Case Closed 

      Jonsson, Maria (2010)
