  1. 1. The Swedish Prison and Probation Service assistance of prison development : Focus on Somalia

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för samhällsstudier (SS)

    Author : Lina Petersson; [2019]
    Keywords : Swedish prison and probation service; SPPS; prison development; seconded personnel; aid; Somalia; institutional development; peacekeeping;

    Abstract : Despite the Swedish Prison and Probation Service (SPPS) are a pioneer on the global arena regarding the area of corrections, generally little is known of what they do in Sweden as well as internationally. This study will explore the SPPS implementation of prison development in Somalia, which will be done through interviews with seconded personnel and others within the Swedish government that have connections to the prison development in Somalia.

  2. 2. Peptide fragment screening towards a new inhibitor of neutrophil elastase

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Tomas Szakacs; [2019]
    Keywords : pharmaceutical technology; läkemedelsteknologi; Chemistry; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The main purpose of this master thesis was to test a novel approach of finding leads for new pharmaceuticals, by using Solid Phase Peptide Synthesis (SPPS) in combination with Weak Affinity Chromatography (WAC). Put in a more concrete way, the objective was to find a lead for a better human neutrophil elastase inhibitor. READ MORE

  3. 3. One Bead One Compound Screening for Cyclic Peptide Binding Partners

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Molekylär fysik

    Author : Johanna Utterström; [2018]
    Keywords : Cyclic peptides; SPPS-synthesis; OBOC library; SAAP-screening; PED MS sequencing; SPR; dimerization;

    Abstract : In recent years a significant research focus has been on the development of biomimicking three-dimensional substrates for cell culturing. Hydrogels mimicking the extracellular matrix is a well-suited scaffold for this purpose and there are many different ways these can be cross-linked to retain their shape. READ MORE

  4. 4. Solid-phase synthesis of Avian β-Defensin 8

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för kemi och biomedicin (KOB)

    Author : Erik Selim; [2014]
    Keywords : SPPS; Peptide Synthesis; Defensin; Mallard duck; Avian Beta; AvBD8;

    Abstract : Differences in the expression of antimicrobial peptides in vivo have been proposed as underlying factors influencing susceptibility to infection. In this context, the role of avian b-defensins in inhibiting avian influenza infections is a study object in an ongoing collaboration with the Zoonotic Ecology and Epidemiology group at Lnu.

  5. 5. Planar Plasmonic Devices for Controlling Polarization of Light

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för informations- och kommunikationsteknik (ICT)

    Author : Kunli Xiong; [2013]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Planar nanostructures made of noble metal can efficiently control transmission of light, thanks to surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) mediated through interaction between such a structure and incoming light. In this thesis, we numerically characterize, with a 3D finiteelement method, three types of plasmonic devices: plasmonic radial/azimuthal filter, plasmonic quarter-wave plate made of a periodic array of round holes in a thin metallic film, and a plasmonic quarter-wave plate with a periodic array of cross-shaped apertures.
