  • O'Connell, Barry M; McGloughlin, Timothy M.; Walsh, Michael T. (BioMed Central, 2010)
    Coronary artery disease can be treated by implanting a stent into the blocked region of an artery, thus enabling blood perfusion to distal vessels. Minimally invasive procedures of this nature often result in damage to ...
  • O'Connor, Pat (National University of Galway, 2003)
    The reality of discrimination within the university system has been recognised by, for example, the Committee of Vice Chancellors and Principals in the UK (CVCP, 1991), and the President of MIT in the US (MIT, 1999). In a ...

    It is generally recognized that the first year of teaching is a critical time in the professional life of a teacher. It is a major life change from the role of student to teacher and working adult, from one who is guided ...
  • Moore, Thomas D.; Jarvis, John L. (IEEE Computer Society, 2001)
    This paper examines one of the common modes of structural failure in multichip ball grid arrays (BGAs), determines its locations within the package structure, relates it to the stresses generated in the reliability tests ...
  • Keogh, Sinéad A.; Walczak, Henning; Bouchier-Hayes, Lisa; Martin, Seamus J. (Elsevier, 2000)
    Tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-related apoptosis inducing ligand (TRAIL) is a member of the TNF family of cytokines that promotes apoptosis and NF-kB activation. Here we show that recombinant hu-TRAIL initiates the activation ...
  • Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    NASA is developing plans for innovative and novel approaches to future (unmanned) space exploration missions. Future missions involve sending spacecraft and robots to harsh environments, where resilience is necessary for ...
