MSE Seminar: “Harnessing Temporally Controlled Biophysical Cues To Direct Stem Cell Phenotype”

February 25 at 10:45 AM - 11:45 AM

Endogenous tissue-specific stem cells are crucial regulators of tissue health throughout life, orchestrating diverse functions ranging from learning and cognition to skeletal muscle homeostasis. The local microenvironment, or stem cell niche, presents a myriad of biochemical and biophysical factors that direct cell fate. Stem cell mediated tissue regeneration relies on presentation of these factors in […]

ESE Seminar: “Sensing the Physical World using Pervasive Wireless Infrastructure”

February 25 at 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Zoom – Email ESE for Link jbatter@seas.upenn.edu

Emerging applications such as smart cities, autonomous vehicles, and mixed reality rely on embedded systems that are engaging with the physical environment through sensors. Building upon this connection, my vision is to advance Omnipresent Sensing by harnessing the wireless infrastructure in and around buildings and cities to act as a non-intrusive sensing platform. This is possible by […]

BE Seminar: “Dissecting Multicellular Therapeutic Responses Using a Large-scale Single-cell Profiling Platform” (Siyu Chen)

February 25 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

This event will be held virtually via Zoom (check email or contact ksas@seas.upenn.edu). Human diseases are fundamentally multicellular in nature with many different cell types contributing to disease progression and treatment response. However, how therapeutics impact each cell type in a heterogeneous population remains poorly understood because most studies are focused on isolated cell types […]

CIS Seminar:”Probabilistic proofs: theory, hardware, and everything in between”

February 25 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Zoom – Email CIS for link, cherylh@cis.upenn.edu + Google Map

In the past decade, systems that use probabilistic proofs in real-world applications have seen explosive growth. These systems build upon some of the crown jewels of theoretical computer science---interactive proofs, probabilistically checkable proofs, and zero-knowledge proofs---to solve problems of trust and privacy in a wide range of settings. This talk describes my work building systems […]

ODEI Event: Do You Have a Crew? The Importance of Friendship in Creating a Fulfilling Life

February 25 at 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Don’t isolate. Congregate! Join Penn Engineering’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to meet six dynamic men and learn about how their bonds of friendship and NSBE affiliation benefited them personally and professionally. Hear their story and engage in Q&A for the first hour (7PM-8PM). Then, meet someone new in breakout groups (8PM-8:30PM). An additional […]
