An innovative and authentic way of learning how to consult remotely in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Educ Prim Care 2021 Apr 29:1-6. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Professor of Medical Education in Primary Care, University of Aberdeen Medical School, U.K.

Medical students preparing to undertake general practice (GP) placements need to be equipped with the unique skills required to successfully utilise and adapt to current and emerging remote consultation modalities used in primary care and integrate this into their day-to-day clinical practice. Medical educators needed to flexibly and quickly cater learning to the evolving landscape.A three-hour teaching session was devised to be delivered to 50 students online via Microsoft Teams™ and facilitated by five general practice tutors in groups of 10, prior to students' GP placements.

A Capstone Course Where Students Present Contemporary Neuroscience Research to High School Students.

Minjoon Kouh

J Undergrad Neurosci Educ 2020 31;19(1):A89-A93. Epub 2020 Dec 31.

Physics Department and Neuroscience Program, Drew University, Madison, NJ 07940.

This article describes a model of a neuroscience capstone course where students choose and study contemporary neuroscience research articles in depth and then present them to high school students in short videos. This course can provide a meaningful culminating experience where students are applying their neuroscience knowledge and communication skills acquired from their undergraduate education. As students take on the ownership of learning and presenting diverse neuroscience topics, this course can be run flexibly and remotely as needed. Read More

Telehealth's New Horizon: Providing Smart Hospital-Level Care in the Home.

Telemed J E Health 2021 Mar 3. Epub 2021 Mar 3.

William Perry Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies, National Defense University, Washington, District of Columbia, USA.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, medical providers have expanded telehealth into daily practice, with many medical and behavioral health care visits provided remotely over video or through phone. The telehealth market was already facilitating home health care with increasing levels of sophistication before COVID-19. Among the emerging telehealth practices, telephysical therapy; teleneurology; telemental health; chronic care management of congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes; home hospice; home mechanical ventilation; and home dialysis are some of the most prominent.

State-Transition Modeling of Human-Robot Interaction for Easy Crowdsourced Robot Control.

Sensors (Basel) 2020 Nov 15;20(22). Epub 2020 Nov 15.

Department of Adaptive Machine Systems, Osaka University, Suita 565-0871, Japan.

Robotic salespeople are often ignored by people due to their weak social presence, and thus have difficulty facilitating sales autonomously. However, for robots that are remotely controlled by humans, there is a need for experienced and trained operators. In this paper, we suggest crowdsourcing to allow general users on the internet to operate a robot remotely and facilitate customers' purchasing activities while flexibly responding to various situations through a user interface.

Spatiotemporally Controlled Multiplexed Photothermal Microfluidic Pumping under Monitoring of On-Chip Thermal Imaging.

ACS Sens 2019 09 6;4(9):2481-2490. Epub 2019 Sep 6.

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry , University of Texas at El Paso , 500 West University Avenue , El Paso , Texas 79968 , United States.

Intelligent contactless microfluidic pumping strategies have been increasingly desirable for operation of lab-on-a-chip devices. Herein, we present a photothermal microfluidic pumping strategy for on-chip multiplexed cargo transport in a contactless and spatiotemporally controllable fashion based on the application of near-infrared laser-driven photothermal effect in microfluidic paper-based devices (μPDs). Graphene oxide (GO)-doped thermoresponsive poly(-isopropylacrylamide)-acrylamide hydrogels served as the photothermally responsive cargo reservoirs on the μPDs. Read More

Programmable Spectral Filter in C-Band Based on Digital Micromirror Device.

Micromachines (Basel) 2019 Feb 27;10(3). Epub 2019 Feb 27.

School of Electronic Engineering, Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, Beijing 100876, China.

Optical filters have been adopted in many applications such as reconfigurable telecommunication switches, tunable lasers and spectral imaging. However, most of commercialized filters based on a micro-electrical-mechanical system (MEMS) only provide a minimum bandwidth of 25 GHz in telecom so far. In this work, the programmable filter based on a digital micromirror device (DMD) experimentally demonstrated a minimum bandwidth of 12. Read More

Programmable wettability on photocontrolled graphene film.

Sci Adv 2018 09 14;4(9):eaat7392. Epub 2018 Sep 14.

State Key Laboratory of Bioelectronics, School of Biological Science and Medical Engineering, Southeast University, Nanjing 210096, China.

Surface materials with specific wettability play important roles in a wide variety of areas from science to industry. We present a novel paraffin-infused porous graphene film (PIPGF) with programmable wettability. Because of graphene's photothermal property, the paraffin in the PIPGF was in transition between liquid and solid in response to near-infrared (NIR) light irradiation. Read More

A Magnetically Responsive Biomaterial System for Flexibly Regulating the Duration between Pro- and Anti-Inflammatory Cytokine Deliveries.

Adv Healthc Mater 2018 06 16;7(12):e1800227. Epub 2018 Apr 16.

Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI, 02881, USA.

While inflammation can be problematic, it is nonetheless necessary for proper tissue regeneration. However, it remains unclear how the magnitude and duration of the inflammatory response impacts regenerative outcome. This is partially due to the difficulty in temporally regulating macrophage phenotype at wound sites. Read More

Remote Giant Multispectral Plasmonic Shifts of Labile Hinged Nanorod Array via Magnetic Field.

Nano Lett 2015 Apr 13;15(4):2679-84. Epub 2015 Mar 13.

School of Materials Science and Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia 30332, United States.

We report a remotely mediated and fast responsive plasmonic-magnetic nanorod array with extremely large variability in optical appearance (up to 100 nm shifts in scattering maxima) and concurrently for multiple wavelengths in a broad range from UV-vis to near-infrared (at 450, 550, and 670 nm) with an external magnetic field with variable direction. The observed phenomenon demonstrates a rapid, wide-range response controlled via a noninvasive remote stimulus. The remotely controlled system suggested here is a magnetic field-directed assembly of an ordered monolayer array of unipolar oriented magnetic-plasmonic nickel-gold nanorods flexibly hinged to a sticky substrate.
