  • Walsh, Bairbre Anne Patricia (University College Cork, 2011-09)
    This thesis considers the three works of fiction of the Jamaican author Claude McKay (1889-1948) as a coherent transnational trilogy which dramatises the semi-autobiographical complexities of diasporic exile and return in ...
  • O'Mahony, Aoife M.; Ogier, Julien; Desgranges, Stephane; Cryan, John F.; Darcy, Raphael; O'Driscoll, Caitríona M. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012-05-21)
    A new approach to the synthesis of amphiphilic beta-cyclodextrins has used 'click' chemistry to selectively modify the secondary 2-hydroxyl group. The resulting extended polar groups can be either polycationic or neutral ...
  • O'Mahony, Aoife M.; Godinho, B. M. D. C.; Ogier, Julien R.; Devocelle, Marc; Darcy, Raphael; Cryan, John F.; O'Driscoll, Caitríona M. (American Chemical Society, 2012-08-03)
    RNA interference (RNAi) holds great promise as a strategy to further our understanding of gene function in the central nervous system (CNS) and as a therapeutic approach for neurological and neurodegenerative diseases. ...
  • Savage, Eileen; Callery, Peter (Elsevier, 2007)
    The aim of this paper is to examine clinic consultations on the dietary management of cystic fibrosis with particular consideration to the role of children.  The role of parents is also examined to determine how their ...
  • O'Sullivan, Michael J.; Grigoras, Dan (IEEE, 2013-03)
    This paper introduces the original concept of a cloud personal assistant, a cloud service that manages the access of mobile clients to cloud services. The cloud personal assistant works in the cloud on behalf of its owner: ...
  • Ashu-Ayem, Enowmbi R.; Nitschke, Udo; Monahan, Ciaran; Chen, Jun; Darby, Steven B.; Smith, Paul D.; O’Dowd, Colin D.; Stengel, Dagmar B.; Venables, Dean S. (American Chemical Society, 2012)
    Tidally exposed macroalgae emit large amounts of I2 and iodocarbons that produce hotspots of iodine chemistry and intense particle nucleation events in the coastal marine boundary layer. Current emission rates are poorly ...
  • Monahan, Ciaran; Ashu-Ayem, Enowmbi R.; Nitschke, Udo; Darby, Steven B.; Smith, Paul D.; Stengel, Dagmar B.; Venables, Dean S.; O’Dowd, Colin D. (American Chemical Society, 2012)
    Laboratory studies into particle formation from Laminaria digitata macroalgae were undertaken to elucidate aerosol formation for a range of I2 (0.3−76 ppbv) and O3(<3−96 ppbv) mixing ratios and light levels (EPAR = 15, ...
  • Rohan, James F.; Casey, Declan P.; Ahern, Bernadette M.; Rhen, Fernando M. F.; Roy, Saibal; Fleming, David; Lawrence, Simon E. (Elsevier, 2008-09)
    We present a novel technique for the preparation of coaxial metal and magnetic alloy nanotubes, which is demonstrated for the coaxial nanotubes of Ni/Co and Ni/CoNiFe alloys deposited in activated polycarbonate templates ...
  • Fábián, László; Hamill, Noel; Eccles, Kevin S.; Moynihan, Humphrey A.; Maguire, Anita R.; McCausland, Linda; Lawrence, Simon E. (American Chemical Society, 2011-01)
    Cocrystal formation between nicotinamide and five fenamic acid derivative drugs (flufenamic acid, niflumic tolfenamic acid, mefenamic acid and meclofenamic acid) was investigated using solution-based and solid-state ...
  • Healy, Tadhg Conor (University College Cork, 2007)
    In this thesis a novel transmission format, named Coherent Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CoWDM) for use in high information spectral density optical communication networks is proposed and studied. In chapter I a ...
  • Cummins, Lisa (University College Cork, 2013)
    Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) uses past experiences to solve new problems. The quality of the past experiences, which are stored as cases in a case base, is a big factor in the performance of a CBR system. The system's ...
  • O'Mahony, Caitlin; Scully, Paul; O'Mahony, David; Murphy, Sharon; O'Brien, Frances; Lyons, Anne; Sherlock, Graham; MacSharry, John; Kiely, Barry; Shanahan, Fergus; O'Mahony, Liam (PLOS, 2008-08-01)
    Host defence against infection requires a range of innate and adaptive immune responses that may lead to tissue damage. Such immune-mediated pathologies can be controlled with appropriate T regulatory (Treg) activity. The ...
  • Bates, Catherine; Burns, Kenneth (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2012-11)
    The global economic crisis, the cost of socialising enormous bank debts and exchequer fiscal ‘corrections’ in the Irish economy (see Kirby and Murphy 2011), have sharpened recent debates on the role and functions of Higher ...
