  • Campbell, Karen A.; MacKinnon, Karen; Dobbins, Maureen; Van Borek, Natasha; Jack, Susan M.; Catherine, Nicole; Gonzalez, Andrea; Landy, Christine Kurtz; MacMillan, Harriet; Marcellus, Lenora; Sheehan, Debbie; Tonmyr, Lil; Varcoe, Colleen; Waddell, Charlotte (BMC Nursing, 2019)
    Background Pregnant girls/young women and new mothers living in situations of social and economic disadvantage are at increased risk for poor health. Rural living may compound marginalization and create additional challenges ...
  • Fischer, Jaimy; Nelson, Trisalyn; Laberee, Karen; Winters, Meghan (Accident Analysis & Prevention, 2020)
    With only ∼20 % of bicycling crashes captured in official databases, studies on bicycling safety can be limited. New datasets on bicycling incidents are available via crowdsourcing applications, with opportunity for analyses ...
  • Schlie, Katrin; Spowart, Jaeline E.; Hughson, Luke R.K.; Townsend, Katelin N.; Lum, Julian J. (International Journal of Cell Biology, 2011-08)
    Hypoxia is a signature feature of growing tumors. This cellular state creates an inhospitable condition that impedes the growth and function of all cells within the immediate and surrounding tumor microenvironment. To adapt ...
  • Ohlhauser, Lisa; Parker, Ashleigh F.; Smart, Colette M.; Gawryluk, Jodie R.; for the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (Alzheimer’s & Dementia, 2019)
    Introduction: Subjective cognitive decline (SCD) is the earliest stage on the continuum toward Alzheimer's disease. This study examined (1) differences in white matter integrity between individuals with SCD and healthy ...
  • McLaren, Lindsay; Braitstein, Paula; Buckeridge, David; Contandriopoulos, Damien; Creatore, Maria I.; Faulkner, Guy; Hammond, David; Hoffman, Steven J.; Kestens, Yan; Leatherdale, Scott; McGavock, Jonathan; Norman, Wendy V.; Nykiforuk, Candace; Ridde, Valéry; Smylie, Janet (Canadian Journal of Public Health, 2019)
    Public health is critical to a healthy, fair, and sustainable society. Realizing this vision requires imagining a public health community that can maintain its foundational core while adapting and responding to contemporary ...
  • Kawamura, Junichiro; Okawa, Shohei; Omura, Yuji; Tang, Yong (Journal of High Energy Physics, 2019)
    We extend the Standard Model (SM) with parity symmetry, motivated by the strong CP problem and dark matter. In our model, parity symmetry is conserved at high energy by introducing a mirror sector with the extra gauge ...
  • Elliott, Kyle Hamish; Chivers, Lorraine S; Bessey, Lauren; Gaston, Anthony J; Hatch, Scott A; Kato, Akiko; Osborne, Orla; Ropert-Coudert, Yan; Speakman, John R; Hare, James F (Movement Ecology, 2014-09-12)
    Background: Windscapes affect energy costs for flying animals, but animals can adjust their behavior to accommodate wind-induced energy costs. Theory predicts that flying animals should decrease air speed to compensate for ...
  • Exner, Heidi; Gibson, Erin K.; Stone, Ryan; Lindquist, Jennifer; Cowen, Laura L.E.; Roth, Eric A. (BioMed Central, 2009-07-29)
    Background: The concept of risk dominates the HIV/AIDS literature pertaining to People Who Use Injection Drugs (PWUID). In contrast the associated concept of worry is infrequently applied, even though it can produce ...
  • Keais, Graeme; Hanson, Mark; Gowen, Brent; Perlman, Steve (Journal of Evolutionary Biology, 2017-06)
    Selfish genes that bias their own transmission during meiosis can spread rapidly in populations, even if they contribute negatively to the fitness of their host. Driving X chromosomes provide a clear example of this type ...
  • Hall, O.; Davinson, T.; Estrade, A.; Liu, J.; Lorusso, G.; Montes, F.; Nishimura, S.; Phong, V.H.; Woods, P.J.; Agramunt, J.; Ahn, D.S.; Algora, A.; Allmond, J.M.; Baba, H.; Bae, S.; Brewer, N.T.; Bruno, C.G.; Caballero-Folch, R.; Dillmann, I. (Physics Letters B, 2021)
    Theoretical models of β-delayed neutron emission are used as crucial inputs in r-process calculations. Benchmarking the predictions of these models is a challenge due to a lack of currently available experimental data. In ...
