Interdependence and dynamics of essential services in an extensive risk context: a case study in Montserrat, West Indies
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2015)
The essential services that support urban living are complex and interdependent, and their disruption in disasters directly affects society. Yet there are few empirical studies to inform our understanding of the ...
Urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children’s exposure to stressful events: a cross-sectional study
(University of Canterbury. School of Health Sciences, 2013)
Objectives: To determine the frequency and types of stressful events affecting urban Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander children and to explore the relationship between these experiences and the children’s physical ...
Changing epidemiological trends of legionellosis in New Zealand, 1979-2009
(University of Canterbury. Geography, 2012)
This study evaluated the spatio-temporal variation of Legionella spp. in New Zealand using notification and laboratory surveillance data from 1979 to 2009 and analysed the epidemiological trends. To achieve this we focused ...
Variation in health and social equity in the spaces where we live: A review of previous literature from the GeoHealth Laboratory
(University of Canterbury. Geography, 2013)
The previous decade has given rise to the importance of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in explaining inequalities in health outcomes between groups based on their spatial location and social background. The GeoHealth ...
Tracking Parkinson's Disease over One Year with Multimodal Magnetic Resonance Imaging in a Group of Older Patients with Moderate Disease
(University of Canterbury. Psychology, 2015)
Background & Objectives: Cross-sectional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) suggests that Parkinson’s disease (PD) is associated with changes in cerebral tissue volume, diffusion tensor imaging metrics, and perfusion ...
L,L-diaminopimelate aminotransferase (DapL): a putative target for the development of narrow-spectrum antibacterial compounds.
(University of Canterbury. Biological SciencesUniversity of Canterbury. Biomolecular Interaction Centre, 2014)
Despite the urgent need for sustained development of novel antibacterial compounds to combat the drastic rise in antibiotic resistant and emerging bacterial infections, only a few clinically relevant antibacterial drugs ...
A VapBC Toxin-Antitoxin Module is a Post-Transcriptional Regulator of Metabolic Flux in Mycobacteria
(University of Canterbury. Biological SciencesUniversity of Canterbury. Biomolecular Interaction Centre, 2012)
The largest family of toxin-antitoxin (TA) modules are encoded by the vapBC operons, but their roles in bacterial physiology remain enigmatic. Microarray analysis in Mycobacterium smegmatis overexpressing VapC/VapBC revealed ...
