    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Carina Marcus; Peter Münger; Kristian Amadori; Peter Bull; Christopher Jouannet; Torleif Martin; Kelly Griendling; [2020]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : The aircraft design process has several phases, the first of which is conceptual design. In this phase, models describing an aircraft concept’s properties are used to evaluate its function and identify designs that meet given requirements. READ MORE

  3. 3. Zebrafish models for large-scale genetic screens in dyslipidemia and atherosclerosis Validation and application

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Manoj Kumar Bandaru; Marcel den Hoed; Anastasia Emmanouilidou; Ingelsson Erik; Shannon Fisher; [2019]

    Abstract : Hundreds of loci have been robustly associated with circulating lipids, atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease; but for most loci the causal genes and mechanisms remain uncharacterized. The overall aim of my thesis is to develop and validate novel in vivo model systems that are suitable for high-throughput, image-based genetic screens in coronary artery disease and related traits, and use these model systems to systematically characterize positional candidate genes.

    Abstract : In Sweden, more than 2 000 individuals are diagnosed with rectal cancer each year. Surgery is the main curative treatment, and involves removal of the tumor with the surrounding mesorectum in adefined anatomical plane. Intestinal continuity is restored by anastomosing the colon to the rectalstump at the pelvic floor. READ MORE

  5. 5. Brain Structure and Function in Adolescents with Atypical Anorexia Nervosa

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Gaia Olivo; Helgi B. Schiöth; Christian Benedict; Jessica Mwinyi; Andreas Jansen; [2019]
