National Chiao Tung University , is a renowned public research university with international reputation located in Hsinchu City, Taiwan. NCTU was originally founded in Shanghai in 1896 and re-established in Taiwan by former Chiao Tung University faculty and alumni members in 1958, following the government of the Republic of China's forced relocation to Taiwan after the Chinese Civil War. The university's main campus is located close to the Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan's national research center. The area is referred to as the Silicon Valley of Asia. More than 400 technology companies have been established in the park. The NCTU campus is also one of top tourist attractions in Hsinchu area. Wikipedia.

A one-dimensional titanium nanostructure and a method for fabricating the same are provided. A titanium metal reacts with titanium tetrachloride to form the one-dimensional titanium nanostructure on a heat-resistant substrate in a CVD method and under a reaction condition of a reaction temperature of 300-900 C., a deposition temperature of 200-850 C., a flow rate of the carrier gas of 0.1-50 sccm and a reaction time of 5-60 hours. The titanium nanostructure includes titanium nanowires, titanium nanobelts, flower-shaped titanium nanowires, titanium nanorods, titanium nanotubes, and titanium-titanium dioxide core-shell structures. The titanium nanostructure can be densely and uniformly grown on the heat-resistant substrate. The present invention neither uses a template nor uses the complicated photolithographic process, solution preparation process, and mixing-coating process. Therefore, the process scale-up, cost down, and the simplified production process are achieved.

A rack assembly includes a rack body and a jet generating device. The rack body is configured to hold a plurality of servers that are displaced from each other by a passageway. The jet generating device is disposed in the passageway and includes a partition wall, a proximal barrier, and a distal barrier. The partition wall is disposed to define an inflow path and an outflow path. When cooling air is drawn into the inflow path, the cooling air is blocked by the distal barrier such that the cooling air is forced to flow into the outflow path through internal ports of the partition wall to generate a plurality of cooling air jets, which impinge on and cool one of the servers.

The invention utilizes virtual screening strategy to seek for current market drugs as anti-schizophrenia therapydrug repurposing. Drug repurposing strategy finds new uses other than the original medical indications of existing drugs. Finding new indications for such drugs will benefit patients who are in needs for a potential new therapy sooner since known drugs are usually with acceptable safety and pharmacokinetic profiles. In this study, repurposing marketed drugs for DAAO inhibitor as new schizophrenia therapy was performed with virtual screening on marketed drugs and its metabolites. The identified and available drugs and compounds were further confirmed with in vitro DAAO enzymatic inhibitory assay.
