  1. 1. Establishment and Characterisation of new Immunoreagents for diagnosis of Ovarian cancer

    University essay from

    Author : Fanny Carlsson; [2023-04-19T12:15:23Z 2023-04-19T12:15:23Z 2022 2023]
    Keywords : ovarian; cancer; monoclonal; antibodies; biomarkers; CARM1; PARPi; EZH2i;

    Abstract : Ovarian cancer is the most lethal of all gynaecological cancers and it is often diagnosedat an advanced stage due to diffuse and only mild symptoms at early stages.Early detection is crucial to increase survival but high-grade serous ovarian cancer(HGSOC) often presents non-specific symptoms, such as loss of appetite, bloating ofabdomen and tiredness.

  2. 2. Wastewater Characterisation for Design and Modelling of Primary Settlers at Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Industriell elektroteknik och automation

    Author : Louise Westin; [2023]
    Keywords : Primary Settling Tank; Wastewater Treatment; Settleometer; Particle Settling Velocity Distribution; Modelling.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The primary settling tank (PST) is often one of the first treatment steps at a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) and is the first process in the plant to remove significant amounts of suspended solids. Its role in wastewater treatment however, has oftentimes been neglected and little effort has been made to optimize and model the process. READ MORE

  3. 3. Conceptualisation, Implementation and Commissioning of a Controlled Pyrolysis Rig : KTH Master Thesis Report

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Arjun Monga; [2023]
    Keywords : coke deposition; pyrolysis; catalysis; methane; sample; cooling channels; regenerative cooling; rocket engines; koksavsättning; pyrolys; katalys; metan; prov; kylkanaler; regenerativ kylning; raketmotorer;

    Abstract : Liquid methane has seen popular interest from industry and academia as a next-generation rocket fuel due to its favorable performance characteristics and potential for extra-terrestrial in-situ resource utilisation. Since the rocket combustion chamber and nozzle are subject to high heat loads, regenerative cooling is a standard method to achieve lower temperatures. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterisation of an Additively Manufactured Self-Sensing Material Using Carbon Fibre Sensors

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Alain Williamson; [2023]
    Keywords : Additive Manufacturing; Self-Sensing Material; Carbon Fibre Sensors; Structural Health Monitoring; Space Applications; 3D-Printed Continuous Carbon Fibre Filament; Strain Sensor; Mechanical Properties; Electromechanical Properties; Tensile Strength; Failure Strain; Base Resistance; Gauge Factor; Linearity; Systematic Literature Review; Material Selection; Mechanical Design; Material Development; Feasibility Study;

    Abstract : Increasing demand for structural health monitoring in space highlights the need to make the creation of these systems more accessible. This study investigates the potential of additive manufacturing to achieve this goal by characterizing a self-sensing material made of a commercially available 3D-printed continuous carbon fibre filament.

  5. 5. Functional Characterisation of Effectors from Biotrophic and Necrotrophic Wheat Pathogens in Heterologous Expression Systems

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology

    Author : Mark Melchior; [2023]
    Keywords : wheat; Blumeria graminis; Parastagonospora nodorum; effectors;

    Abstract : Effector proteins play an important role in the interactions between fungal pathogens and their host plant. Recognition of effectors can lead to localised cell death in plants. The necrotrophic fungus Parastagonospora nodorum utilises this mechanism to induce cell death in wheat and cause Stagonospora nodorum blotch (SNB). READ MORE
