An exploratory model of knowledge flow barriers within healthcare organizations
Chinho Lin

1.Introduction
Healthcare IS today are mainly knowledge-based and the diffusion of medical knowledge is imperative for optimal treatment of patients. Our study of the industry explored barriers to knowledge flow using a Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT) framework. Our work was exploratory and qualitative in nature, ...

Liquid Phase Deposition of Al2O3 Thin Films on GaN
Yeong-Her Wang

Much attention has been focused on replacing SiO2 with Al2O3 as a dielectric insulation film for semiconductor device applications due to the latter’s large band gap (~9 eV), higher dielectric constant (k = 10), high breakdown electric field (5 -10 MVcm-1), good thermal stability (amorphous up to 1000o C), chemical stability against AlGaN ...

Contact measurement of internal fluid flow within poly(n-isopropylacrylamide) gels
Yu-Yun Lin

Gels are porous materials composed of subunits that are able to bond with each other to form a macroscopic network. An important characteristic of gels is that their mechanical behavior depends on the time scale of the measurement used to probe the material. At sufficiently short times a gel behaves as an incompressible material because there is no time for fluid to flow out of the network. ...

Development of a Novel Conditionally Replicating Pseudorabies Virus for HER-2/neu-Overexpressing Bladder Cancer Therapy
Ai-Li Shiau

Conventional therapies for transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder often result in poor prognosis. HER-2/neu is a cell surface proto-oncogene that is often overexpressed in various cancers. Higher frequency of HER-2/neu overexpression has been observed in muscle-invasive bladder cancer, which correlates with enhanced metastasis and a poor clinical outcome. Overexpression of HER-2/neu ...

A portable potentiostat for the bilirubin-specific sensor prepared from molecular imprinting
Mei-Jywan Syu

Bilirubin is an end product from hemoglobin metabolism. Total and direct bilirubins are usually measured to screen or to monitor liver and gall bladder disfunctions. The bilirubin test can be used to judge a liver disease or a blocked bile duct. Owing to the physiological importance of bilirubin, it was chosen as the target molecule to be investigated in this work. The electrochemical sensor for ...
