  • Improving Triage to ECG Time in the Emergency Department 

    Nosworthy, Sara Eileen (Nursing, University of Calgary, 2018-03-15)
    Background: The ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) team of a large Canadian urban tertiary care hospital identified that best practice recommendations were not being met for walk-in patients diagnosed with ...
  • Vibrational Profiling of Brain Cells and Tumours using Atomic Force Microscopy 

    Nelson, Sultan (Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, 2018-03-08)
    Nanoscopic mechanical vibration is observed as a periodic plasma-membrane fluctuation in living cells. The study of this physiological phenomenon is an emerging field of research. All prior experimental work has been limited ...
  • Systematic Study of Parameters Affecting Unconventional Magnetism in Gold Nanostructures 

    Dong, Pengcheng (Science, University of Calgary, 2018-03-09)
    In this exploratory study we seek to make sense of the conflicting results and interpretations of the novel magnetism of gold, by isolating two variables for testing. They are molecular dipole moment of the thiol that forms ...
  • EMW shielding considerations in building design 

    Hakgudener, Serhan (Environmental Design, University of Calgary, 2018-03-06)
    Providing healthy and effective wireless communication in the building environment is a challenge among architects and wireless network designers, due to physical indoor environmental factors. Wireless communication systems ...
  • How Landscape Filters Local Abundance: A Test of the Body Size-Foraging Range Hypothesis in Bumble Bees 

    Retzlaff, Jennifer Leigh (Science, University of Calgary, 2018-03-09)
    For central place foragers, foraging range increases with body size. This is true for eusocial pollinators such as bumble bees, for whom body size dictates the maximum distance to which foragers can travel from their nest. ...
  • Options to Prevent Rabies in Cattle in Bhutan 

    Rinchen, Sangay (Veterinary Medicine, University of Calgary, 2018-03-09)
    Rabies is endemic in the southern regions of Bhutan. Frequent spillover in cattle threatens the livelihoods of marginal farmers and poses significant public health threats with a high cost to the government for outbreak ...
  • Cell Design and Electrode Material for All Vanadium Redox Flow Battery 

    Li, Jialang (Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary, 2018-03-09)
    The all-vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) is one of the most promising renewable energy storage systems due to its high energy efficiency, reliability, design flexibility and environmental friendly. In order to improve ...
  • Measuring decay rate of spontaneous emission from an ensemble of cold atoms by homodyne detection 

    Jalnapurkar, Shreyas (Science, University of Calgary, 2018-03-06)
    Nanofibers are a valuable tool for interfacing photons with atomic media through its guided mode which propagates evanescent to the fiber. However, the nanofiber modifies the natural decay rate of the atomic dipoles due ...
  • Modeling of Biological Membranes by a Coarse-grained Approach 

    Delgado Magnero, Karelia Hortencia (Science, University of Calgary, 2018-03-07)
    In this thesis, Martini coarse-grained simulations were performed to investigate the dynamic behavior of lipids and proteins in two different membrane-protein systems. In the first study, I simulated a chromatophore membrane. ...
  • Carried in Common: Blame, Responsibility, and the Body in Tim O'Brien's Vietnam War Novels 

    Brewer, Zachary (Arts, University of Calgary, 2018-03-05)
    Guilt and blame are two significant thematic concerns for Tim O’Brien in his Vietnam war novels Going After Cacciato and The Things They Carried. However, both novels depict characters who interact with a vibrant world ...
