Cancelled: CBE Seminar – Biomaterials-Mediated Inflammation Control”

Abstract: Many chronic disabling diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus erythematosus are increasingly linked to inappropriate and chronic activation of inflammatory cells. A central event in the pathogenesis of these diseases appears to be an aberrant activation of innate immune sensors, most prominently the Pattern Recognition Receptors (PRRs), by nucleic acids that are released from dead and dying cells. Moreover, such extracellular nucleic acids have also been implicated in inflammatory diseases such as heart attack,…

Closing the Gap between Theory and Practice: Rethinking Engineering Education in Real Time

Despite 20 years of focus on organizational change and effective educational best practices in STEM higher education, significant research findings have had minimal influences on practice.  In 2016, the U-M BME Department sought to disrupt engineering education. Informed by organizational change theory, we asked: 1) Is there potential for change; 2) what strategies facilitate change; and 3) how can these strategies be implemented? As a result, we developed an Instructional Design Sequence, a new approach to instruction in which students,…

Virtual Joint Seminar: Open Source Multicellular Systems Modeling for Cancer (and COVID-19)

May 4 at 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Virtual Joint Seminar of Penn PSOC, Bioengineering, PICS For Zoom details, email gormley@seas.upenn.edu Cancer and other critical human health problems are inherently multiscale: molecular-scale processes such as receptor trafficking and metabolism drive cell-scale processes such as cycling and motility. Biophysical processes like diffusion and tissue mechanics both constrain and drive single-cell behavior. Moreover, cells communicate and coordinate through chemical and mechanical processes. All these processes are dynamically linked to drive emergent multicellular systems behaviors in healthy and diseased tissues. Computational…
