Characteristic Spectra of Laser Speckle
Lisa Chan and Sam Payne analyzed laser speckle from reconstituted high density lipoprotein (HDL) suspended in salt solution of varying molarity to influence aggregation. A Fourier spatial frequency analysis was used to detect characteristic patterns in the light scattered from these native nanoparticles. Wei Cheng Lin helped Lisa and Sam develop an interactive tool, using Matlab, to distinguish similarities and differences in the Fourier spatial frequency power spectrum of the speckle from solutions of different aggregation number.
Cholesterol and BMI
Shirley Chan, Minjing Zheng and Grace Correa isolated HDL from human plasma by density gradient ultracentrifugation to remove chylomicrons, LDL, and other proteins. Shirley and Minjing are also using statistical analysis to ascertain the goodness of fit of a model that predicts plasma lipoprotein concentrations as a function of body mass index (BMI).
