  • Development of a 3D printed simulator for closed reduction of distal radius fractures. Perspectives on medical education Dixon, W., Miller, N., Toal, G. G., Sebok-Syer, S. S., Gisondi, M. A. 2020


    The use of simulators in medical education is critical for developing procedural competence prior to treating patients. Current training of emergency physicians to perform distal radius fracture reduction is inconsistent and inadequate.We developed a 3D printed distal radius fracture simulation training model that is easy to assemble and relatively inexpensive. We present step-by-step instructions to reproduce the model.The model was found to have high fidelity for training by both instructors and participants in a simulation-based mastery learning course.We successfully designed a low cost, easy to reproduce, high fidelity model for use in a simulation-based mastery learning course to teach distal radius fracture reduction.

  • Multiplexed protein detection by proximity ligation for cancer biomarker validation NATURE METHODS Fredriksson, S., Dixon, W., Ji, H., Koong, A. C., Mindrinos, M., Davis, R. W. 2007; 4 (4): 327-329


    We present a proximity ligation-based multiplexed protein detection procedure in which several selected proteins can be detected via unique nucleic-acid identifiers and subsequently quantified by real-time PCR. The assay requires a 1-microl sample, has low-femtomolar sensitivity as well as five-log linear range and allows for modular multiplexing without cross-reactivity. The procedure can use a single polyclonal antibody batch for each target protein, simplifying affinity-reagent creation for new biomarker candidates.
