October 10, 2014
Steven D Hudson, Prasad S. Sarangapani, Kalman D. Migler, Jai A. Pathak
Rheometry is an important characterization tool for therapeutic protein solutions because it determines syringeability and relates indirectly to solution stability and thermodynamic interactions. Despite the maturity of rheometry, there remains a need for

Effects of nanoparticle size and charge on interactions with self-assembled collagen

March 1, 2014
Dongbo Wang, Jing (. Ye, Steven Hudson, Keana Scott, Sheng Lin-Gibson
Recent insights into bone formation have suggested that the critical first step to the biomineralization process is the integration of small (nanometer dimension) mineral clusters into collagen fibers. Such behavior is of intrinsic interest for the areas

Differences in Polydimethylsiloxane Modification Methods Affect Laminin Deposition and Smooth Muscle Cell Proliferation

April 13, 2011
Joy P. Dunkers, Hae-Jeong Lee, Marvi Matos, Lisa Pakstis, Juan M. Taboas, Steven D. Hudson, Marcus T. Cicerone
When culturing cells on flexible surfaces, it is important to consider extracellular matrix treatments that will remain on the surface under mechanical strain. Here we investigate differences in laminin surfaces that were deposited on oxidized PDMS (plasma

Interfacial effects on droplet dynamics in Poiseuille flow

April 12, 2011
Jonathan T. Schwalbe, Frederick R. Phelan Jr., Petia Vlahovska, Steven D. Hudson
Interfacial rheology governs many properties of emulsions, and here we report theory that accounts for and measure surface viscous and elastic forces. Stokes flow is assumed in bulk phases and a jump in hydrodynamic stress at the interface is balanced by
