(Wichita State University, 2011-07)
This research work involves multifunctional magnetically targeted drug delivery microspheres for treatment against breast cancer. A combination therapy approach was followed by encapsulating two chemotherapeutics, ...
• #### The magnetic vector potential, Klein-Gordon equation and Klein’s paradox in relativistic quantum mechanics ﻿

(2007-05)
This thesis evaluates solutions to the Klein-Gordon equation with scalar and vector potentials in the Symmetric and Landau gauges. The solution for the Klein-Gordon equation in the Symmetric gauge does reproduce elements ...
• #### Maintenance oriented optimal design of accelerated degradation testing ﻿

(2006-12)
In this dissertation, the problem of using accelerated degradation testing data for reliability estimation is studied and demonstrated. Simulation and analytical approaches have been investigated. By simulation which ...
• #### Making dad proud: daughters' perceptions of impression management and breadth and depth in communication with their fathers ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2017-07)
Father-daughter communication is an understudied area of interpersonal communication research. Communication in this dyad is also reported significantly less by daughters than communication in mother-daughter relationships. ...
• #### Making it sane :the participation benefits of consumer run organizations ﻿

(2005-12)
The goal of this study is to develop a robust theory that explains how participation in a Consumer-Run Organization (CRO) can lead to positive individual outcomes. To accomplish this goal, existing theoretical explanations ...
• #### Mammalian and viral protease inhibitors ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2010-05)
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is currently the fourth leading cause of death in the US. COPD is a multi-factorial disorder characterized by an oxidant/antioxidant imbalance, inflammation, a protease/antiprotease ...
