      Sisk, Melissa (2011)
      My research at UIC is studying digital art tools and how they are used to address the visualization of scientific research. I use 3D modeling and digital painting tools to create pieces addressing problems within the medical ...
    • Cation Exchange Chromatography in the Yeast Cytochrome C Purification Lab 

      Simunyu, Faith (2015)
      The Cytochrome C Purification Lab introduces valuable purification techniques that biochemistry students will continue to encounter throughout the course of their studies. Students enrolled in Intermediate Biochemistry ...
    • Cave of Eternity 

      Shafiq, Maryam (2010)
      "The corneal epithelium, essential for the integrity and clarity of the cornea, is constantly regenerated by limbal stem cells. These limbal stem cells are present in a specialized region called limbus located between the ...
    • Cell Penetrating Peptide (CPP) 

      Mohandessi, Shabnam (2011)
      "My research aims to label proteins inside living cells with fluorescent molecules. By doing so, we can study a protein’s biological function using a fluorescence microscope. Unfortunately, many fluorescent molecules ...
    • Cell “Flakes” in Winter 

      Yildiz Arslan, Sevim (2011)
      The objective of my study is to gain an understanding of the molecular events in Theiler’s murine encephalomyelitis virus (TMEV) infection resulting in cell death. TMEV is a highly cytolytic RNA virus that causes a persistent ...
    • Chalkboard 

      Harper, Rachel (2012)
      I am an artist, an educator, and a researcher, and I experience the meaning and practice of these forms of work in interconnected ways. This photograph is an image of the present moment in the evolving diagram of my emerging ...
    • Charting a Path 

      Sweetman, Brian (2010)
      Intracranial dynamics describes the interactions of blood flow, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and deformable brain tissue. While the physical properties of cranial fluids and brain porosity are known, no comprehensive ...
    • The Chicago House 

      Pater-Rov, Nayereh (2011)
      The objective during this past and my first semester of Graduate Architecture Studio was to learn Control. As an architect, we must learn to design with reason and objective. This image is of a "typical Chicago lot," yet ...
    • Choreographed Testing of Total Knee Replacements 

      Knowlton, Christopher Bemis (2013)
      Total knee replacements are a common surgical intervention to alleviate debilitating pain at the knee, but wear of the implants has limited their longevity. Accelerated wear testing can be performed to evaluate materials ...
    • Circle Back 

      Dimoulis, Yannis (2017)
      There's no denying that we live in a throw-away society. Many of us consume and dispose without a second thought. Rather than focus on changing cultural habits, I felt it was time to reevaluate the materials we use with ...
    • City of the Cul-de-Sac 

      van der Ploeg, Matthew (2010)
      "This image, which is a digital photograph of a 24”-diameter mixed-media model, speculates on alternative arrangements for the city. In the model, “sprawl” development is unleashed on a spherical surface, thus questioning ...
    • Clamorous Development and Queer Space 

      Blair, Zachary (2011)
      My research explores the politics, economy, history, and social geography of the Boystown neighborhood of Chicago. I look specifically at conflicts over issues of race, gender, sexuality, and space in the neighborhood, and ...
    • Clear Interfaces 

      Parwani, Rachna (2012)
      High resolution microcomputed tomography (MicroCT) scanning of bones with metal implants induces streak artifacts close to the implant periphery. Therefore, the bone-implant interface gets obscured and quantitative ...
    • Cli-mate 

      Kahler, Edward (2011)
      This image is an overhead camera shot of Cli-Mate running on Tactile (a multi-touch table). Cli-Mate is an interactive application that allows climate scientists to view and analyze their data in a multi-touch environment. ...
    • Coarse-grained DMPC bilayer /water simulation system 

      Yuan, Huajun (2009)
      In this study, we have used a coarse-grained model to investigate the lipid bilayer-water system. Here the lipid bilayer we chose is dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) bilayer. The coarse-grained force field is ...
    • Collaborative Inquiry 

      Popp, Jackie (2013)
      Sixth grade students investigate a replica of a shaduf, a tool to draw water from the river, as part of their ongoing inquiry about what life was like for everyday people in ancient Egypt. Project READi (Reading, Evidence, ...
