UCL University College London Eprints
UCL Eprints collects the work of UCL researchers and makes it freely available over the web, helping the worldwide scholarly community to discover UCL research. Institutional repositories like UCL Eprints complement the traditional academic publishing and scholarly communications processes. They raise the visibility of research and help to maximise its impact. UCL researchers are encouraged to deposit a copy of each journal article, conference paper, working paper, and any other research output, in the UCL Eprints at the earliest opportunity, ensuring that their research reaches as wide an audience as possible.
Science 2.0: the view from LERU (League of European Research Universities) - Ayris, P
This paper summarises the position of LERU (League of European Research Universities) in their submission to the Science 2.0 consultation organised by DG Research and Innovation. The paper shows that the LERU Roadmap Towards Open Access was right in recommending the Green route for Open Access since projections by Houghton and Swan show that (unless the whole world moves to embrace Open Access) the Gold route will cost universities more than the Green. The LERU Roadmap for Research Data spells out LERU’s views on research data management (RDM) and the possibility of Open data. LERU has issued a series of...
Current progress in use of adipose derived stem cells in peripheral nerve regeneration - Kalaskar, D; Zack-Williams, SDL
Adipose derived stem cell differentiation is an area of important active research at present. Since adipose tissue is ubiquitous throughout the body it is an ideal source of cells for regeneration of damaged body parts. In the peripheral nervous system there are currently significant limitations in the methods of treatment and subsequent rehabilitation. Adipose stem cells can express proteins which are similar to schwann cells and are termed schwann like cells. In this review we provide an update on the current methods used in peripheral nerve reconstruction using adipose stem cells.
