    Yates, Kyari (The Robert Gordon University Department of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2008-03)
    The bioavailability of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and chlorobiphenyls (CBs) in sediments is largely dependent on the freely dissolved concentration of these pollutants. However, measuring these is challenging, ...
  • Biomarkers of oxidative stress in models of schizophrenia. 

    Young, Julie (The Robert Gordon University The Robert Gordon University, School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2007-12)
    Background Increasing evidence indicates that oxidative injury exists in schizophrenia. Although it may not be the main cause, oxidative damage has been suggested to contribute to the pathophysiology and may account for ...
  • Cellular mechanisms of acute hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction in intrapulmonary veins. 

    Dospinescu, Ciprian (The Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2009-03)
    In the pulmonary circulation, alveolar hypoxia contributes to blood flow regulation. Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) involves both pulmonary arteries and veins, but little is known of the contractile mechanisms ...
  • The characterisation and identification of body fluid proteins for forensic purposes. 

    Vincini, Louisa (The Robert Gordon University Department of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2010-06)
    Advances in DNA technology have led to the extremely sensitive and rapid analysis methods used in forensic science. It can often be crucial to a criminal case to unequivocally identify the body fluid source of DNA. This ...
