Examination of Prostate Cancer Stem-like Cell Associated Factors for their Contribution Towards the Development of Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer
Although early detection and treatment of prostate cancer (PC) shows some benefit, advanced PCs that progress despite androgen deprivation become castration resistant (CRPC). This stage becomes largely incurable as CRPCs are intimately a...
Governing Dogs: An Autoethnographic Tale of Redefining 'Service Dog' in Canada
Service dogs are becoming an integral part of our society. Consequently, there is a need for research that explores how Canada should proceed with the development and implementation of appropriate laws and policies that will...
Monitoring, Multi-rate Modeling, and Economic Model Predictive Control of Chemical Processes
In this work we develop methods and strategies for the design of advanced data-driven monitoring, control, and optimization algorithms. In the initial phase of this research, in an effort to better detect and identify process...
PROGNOSTIC GENE SIGNATURE FOR INTERMEDIATE RISK PROSTATE CANCER
The Gleason Score (GS) is a powerful predictor of outcome among prostate cancer patients. Patients with tumours graded with a GS of 2 to 6 have a much greater chance of survival compared to those with a GS o...
SYNTHESES AND STRUCTURES OF RHENIUM(VII) AND MANGANESE(VII) OXIDE FLUORIDES, MANGANESE(V, IV) FLUORIDES, AND THE FIRST OXIDE OF XENON(II)
This Thesis extends the chemistry of group VII transition metal oxide fluorides, namely ReO3F and MnO3F. The fundamental chemistry of ReO3F has been significantly extended with the development of its high-yield and high-purity synth...
MacSphere is·McMaster University’s Institutional Repository (IR). The purpose of an IR is to bring together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research. The research and scholarly output included in MacSphere has been selected and deposited by the individual university departments and centres on campus.
