  • Stirred Suspension Bioreactor Culture for the Expansion of Porcine Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells 

    Burrell, Kyle (Veterinary Medicine, University of Calgary, 2017-12-21)
    Induced pluripotent stem cells are an attractive cell source for regenerative medicine and the development of therapies, as they can differentiate into any cell type in the body and can proliferate indefinitely under defined ...
  • An Analogy Based Technique for Predicting the Vector Impact of Software Change Requests 

    Kabeer, Shaikh Jeeshan (Science, University of Calgary, 2018-01-03)
    Managing the impact of software change request (CR) requires proper prediction to minimize cost and enhance quality. Traditional techniques only identify source code entities likely to be impacted by the implementation of ...
  • Thalamocortical forward modulation in the auditory cortex 

    Xiong, Colin (Science, University of Calgary, 2017-12-18)
    Auditory masking is a psychoacoustic phenomenon with strong physiological correlates in the central auditory system such as in the primary auditory cortex. The caveat of conventional two-tone paradigms in testing the ...
  • A Unified Hybrid Evolutionary Multi-Objective Optimization Algorithm for Decision Making 

    Peng, Xiufeng (Science, University of Calgary, 2017-12-22)
    Multi-objective optimization involves the simultaneous optimization of two or more objectives. The objectives to be optimized are often conflicting to each other, whereas there is no single optimal solution in the search ...
  • NO2 Exposure and Myocardial Infarction Hospitalizations in Calgary, Canada 

    Liu, Xiaoxiao (Arts, University of Calgary, 2018-01-02)
    Air pollution is a leading public health concern. This research investigated the health effects of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) on myocardial infarction (MI) in Calgary, Canada. Seasonal trend decomposition and hot spot analysis ...
  • GPU-based Compressive Volume Rendering 

    Rabbani, Md Reza (Science, University of Calgary, 2018-01-04)
    There is an increasing demand in the scientific visualization community for high quality real time interactive volume renderers; but the goal of high quality in volume rendering degrades the performance of the volume ...
  • Characterization and Kinetic Study of Ilmenite Ores for Methane Chemical-Looping Combustion 

    Khakpoor, Nima (Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary, 2018-01-12)
    Emitted carbon dioxide from fossil fuels combustion is one of the most influential greenhouse gases leading to global warming. Chemical-looping combustion (CLC) is one of the most efficient methods for carbon capture, ...
  • The Continuum: History, Mathematics, and Philosophy 

    Hayashi, Teppei (Arts, University of Calgary, 2017-12-21)
    The main aim of this dissertation is to depict a wide variety of the conceptions of the continuum by tracing the history of the continuum from the ancient Greece to the modern times, and in so doing, to find a new way to ...
  • Phenotypic and Functional Analysis of Regulatory T Cells during Heligmosomoides polygyrus infection 

    Bowron, Joel (Science, University of Calgary, 2018-01-04)
    Helminths are known to stimulate regulatory T cells, which have been shown to downregulate inflammatory as well as allergic conditions such as Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and allergic asthma respectively. However, ...
  • Pregnane X Receptor (PXR) modulates NLRP3 Inflammasome 

    Hudson, Grace (Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, 2017-12-18)
    Compounds released from the intestinal microbiota may play a role in maintaining mucosal homeostasis, but little is known about the receptors that sense and respond to these compounds. Recently, a cytosolic xenobiotic ...
