CBE Seminar: “Chemical Synthesis Enabled by Information” (Tim Cernak, University of Michigan)

Glandt Forum, Singh Center for Nanotechnology 3205 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA, United States

Abstract Advancing the synthesis of small molecules is critical to the advent of new medicines, materials, and agrochemicals. Our lab has been exploring strategies in chemical synthesis -- both in reaction method development and total synthesis -- that leverage modern data science techniques and robotics. This presentation will share some recent results using informatics to […]

ESE PhD Thesis Defense: “Low Noise and Low Power Front-end Circuit Design for Bio-Signal Recordings”

Room 221, Singh Center for Nanotechnology 3205 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA, United States

Bio-signals in living objects are the signals thatcarry physiological information from one part of the body to another. Studying bio-signals can extract data that maps health status or body activities for medical purposes. Implantable and wearable devices of small volume for measuring different bio-signals are desired for medical applications where the devices measure the signals […]

MEAM Seminar: “The Mechanics of Animal Collective Behavior: From Insect Swarms to Fish Schools”

David Rittenhouse Laboratory Building, Room A5 209 S. 33rd Street, Philadelphia, PA, United States

An incredible diversity of organisms, from bacteria and social insects to bird flocks and fish schools, self-organize to achieve collective tasks. They have inspired the development of decentralized algorithms and robotic swarms. While numerous models have been proposed to understand the self-organization of animal groups, the role of mechanics was rarely considered. In this talk, […]

MEAM Seminar: “Computational FSI Modeling of the Cardiovascular System”

Moore 212

Computational modeling and simulation has become a routine part of cardiovascular clinical research. These techniques leverage medical imaging to construct patient-specific models that can be used to study disease processes, design and evaluate medical devices, perform predictive surgery, and aid in clinical decision-making. Modern cardiovascular simulations often require millions of elements and tens of thousands […]
