Congenital hereditary endothelial corneal dystrophy type 2 (CHED2), Harboyan Syndrome (HS) and Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy (FECD) are caused by SLC4A11 mutations. The majority of SLC4A11 point mutations cause SLC4A11 misfolding and retention in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). This impairs...
The validity and reliability of a test may be compromised because of the presence of misfitting response patterns in test data. Consequently, the purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of the inclusion and exclusion of misfitting response patterns on item parameter estimates...
Steam-solvent coinjection has been studied and pilot-tested as a potential method to improve steam-assisted gravity drainage for bitumen recovery. Reliable design of coinjection requires reliable PVT data for bitumen/solvent/water mixtures, which are scarce and fragmentary in the literature. ...
The question of whether a hagfish is a true vertebrate or not has profound implications about the ancestry of the clade. New anatomical evidence allows a test of their systematic position. With dissections and serial sections of original specimens, and with a literature review, a comparative...
Fully sequential monitoring of longitudinal trials using sequential ranks, with applications to an orthodontics studyDownload
This thesis explores the application of fully sequential methods for the analysis of longitudinal clinical trial data. A new nonparametric approach will be developed, using sequential ranks, for the comparison of several treatment groups. Sequential ranking is an alternative to ranking by the...
Skin cancer is one of the common and most fatal cancers. Therefore, it is important to be able to diagnose skin lesions and detect this cancer before it is too late. Learning to distinguish between sick and healthy lesions is key. However, there are two levels in which one can learn to...
Integrated Hollow-Core Microcavity Arrays - Building Blocks for Optical Sensing and Quantum InformationDownload
This thesis describes an experimental and theoretical study of a novel class of air-core microcavities on chips, monolithically fabricated by the controlled formation of delamination buckles within a-Si/SiO2-based multilayer thin film stacks. First, arrays of dome-shaped microcavities were...
