    Stem Cells 34(3):588 (2016) PMID 26661329

    Although a specific group of transcription factors such as OCT4, SOX2, and NANOG are known to play essential roles in pluripotent stem cell (PSC) self-renewal, pluripotency, and reprogramming, other factors and the key signaling pathways regulating these important properties are not completely u...
  10. Towards universal access to skilled birth attendance: the process of transforming the role of traditional birth attendants in Rural China.

    BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth 16(1):58 (2016) PMID 27000104 PMCID PMC4800763

    Institution-based childbirth, with the ultimate goal of universal access to skilled birth attendance (SBA), has been selected as a key strategy to reduce the maternal mortality rate in many developing countries. However, the question of how to engage traditional birth attendants (TBAs) in the ad...
  11. Migration and distribution of water and organic matter for activated sludge during coupling magnetic conditioning-horizontal electro-dewatering (CM-HED).

    Water Research 88:93 (2016) PMID 26476680

    Magnetic micro-particles (MMPs) and magnetic field (MF) were utilized as a coupling conditioning unit before dewatering activated sludge (AS) under a horizontal electric field. The removal and migration of free and bound water in AS during coupling magnetic conditioning-horizontal electro-dewate...
  12. Political Impetus: Towards a Successful Agenda-Setting for Inclusive Health Policies in Low- and Middle-Income Countries Comment on "Shaping the Health Policy Agenda: The Case of Safe Motherhood Policy in Vietnam".
