Ecological Niche Modeling for Predicting the Potential Geographic Distribution of Invasive Species. This invention uses a novel combination of computer programs and analytical techniques drawn from quantitative geography, artificial intelligence, and the emerging field of biodiversity informatics to provide a tool for predicting, analyzing, and strategizing against agricultural species invasions.

The current invention is a novel composition of matter that is comprised of a monomeric species, which could be used as co-initiator as well as co-monomer. Upon excitation using visible light, the monomeric species efficiently assists the photopolymerization and itself polymerizes into a material that is useful for dental applications.

Hearing loss, tinnitus, and vertigo result from the damage of mechanosensory hair cells (HCs) located in sensory epithelium of the cochlea and vestibular organs of the inner ear. HCs do not regenerate. Currently, hearing aids and cochlear implants are the only treatments to address hearing loss, and both options provide mild relief. The challenge in developing new therapies and screening ototoxic agents is that the cochlear and vestibular sensory epithelium are isolated deep in the inner ear. Invasive measures are required to access the sensory epithelium. KU researchers have endeavored to create both cochlear and vestibular sensory epithelium outside of the body. They are developing a model platform where the cochlear and vestibular sensory epithelium can be grown outside of the body for testing and developing new diagnostics, screening ototoxic agents, and evaluating new therapies. No such model currently exists. Thus, this technology has the potential to take a leap forward in the advancement of medicine for hearing disorders.
