    • Cell Penetrating Peptide (CPP) 

      Mohandessi, Shabnam (2011)
      "My research aims to label proteins inside living cells with fluorescent molecules. By doing so, we can study a protein’s biological function using a fluorescence microscope. Unfortunately, many fluorescent molecules ...
    • Cell “Flakes” in Winter 

      Yildiz Arslan, Sevim (2011)
      The objective of my study is to gain an understanding of the molecular events in Theiler’s murine encephalomyelitis virus (TMEV) infection resulting in cell death. TMEV is a highly cytolytic RNA virus that causes a persistent ...
    • Charting a Path 

      Sweetman, Brian (2010)
      Intracranial dynamics describes the interactions of blood flow, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and deformable brain tissue. While the physical properties of cranial fluids and brain porosity are known, no comprehensive ...
    • Chemistry Graduate Teaching Assistant Identity Development 

      Schroeder, Lianne (2017-11-29)
      This study was designed to better understand how new chemistry graduate students develop a teaching identity as GTAs. Utilizing two complementary conceptual frameworks, Wenger’s Community of Practice and Wortham’s Social ...
    • The Chicago House 

      Pater-Rov, Nayereh (2011)
      The objective during this past and my first semester of Graduate Architecture Studio was to learn Control. As an architect, we must learn to design with reason and objective. This image is of a "typical Chicago lot," yet ...
    • City of the Cul-de-Sac 

      van der Ploeg, Matthew (2010)
      "This image, which is a digital photograph of a 24”-diameter mixed-media model, speculates on alternative arrangements for the city. In the model, “sprawl” development is unleashed on a spherical surface, thus questioning ...
    • Clamorous Development and Queer Space 

      Blair, Zachary (2011)
      My research explores the politics, economy, history, and social geography of the Boystown neighborhood of Chicago. I look specifically at conflicts over issues of race, gender, sexuality, and space in the neighborhood, and ...
    • Cli-mate 

      Kahler, Edward (2011)
      This image is an overhead camera shot of Cli-Mate running on Tactile (a multi-touch table). Cli-Mate is an interactive application that allows climate scientists to view and analyze their data in a multi-touch environment. ...
    • Coarse-grained DMPC bilayer /water simulation system 

      Yuan, Huajun (2009)
      In this study, we have used a coarse-grained model to investigate the lipid bilayer-water system. Here the lipid bilayer we chose is dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC) bilayer. The coarse-grained force field is ...
    • Comorbid Anxiety Increases Cognitive Control Activation in Major Depressive Disorder
