BE Seminar: “Cellular and Acellular Strategies for Heart and Lung Repair” (Ke Cheng, UNC/NCSU)

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

This is a hybrid seminar: Check email for the zoom link and passcode. "Cellular and Acellular Strategies for Heart and Lung Repair" Therapeutic tissue regeneration using stem cells has been hampered by the controversial identity of resident stem cells, low cell retention/engraftment, tumorigenecity and immunogenicity issues. Taking a bioengineering/biomaterials approach, this lecture will introduce the uses of drug delivery and biomaterials […]

MEAM Seminar: “Role of Water in the Mechanics of Cells and Tissues”

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

A large fraction of cell and tissue mass is made of water. The flow of water across the cell surface follows osmotic and hydraulic pressure gradients, and is actively controlled by the cell. This physical fact suggests that the mechanical behavior of cells is intimately connected with cell ionic homeostasis and osmotic control. In this […]

BE Seminar: “Tissue Architecture Driven by Immune Cells” (John Hickey, Stanford University)

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

"Tissue Architecture Driven by Immune Cells" John has developed multiplexed spatial omics techniques and computational tools to decode critical interactions within the multidimensional data (e.g., multiscale models and deep learning algorithms). He applied these tools to understand spatial relationships of cells within the healthy human intestine, inflammation induced cancers (esophageal cancer), and in T cell […]

CBE/BE Seminar: “Targeting Sugars for Immunotherapy in Cancer and Beyond” (Jessica Stark, Stanford)

Wu and Chen Auditorium (Room 101), Levine Hall 3330 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA

Co-hosted by the Departments of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering & Bioengineering. New paradigms to harness the immune system are urgently needed to address unmet needs in human health. I am working to understand and engineer glycoimmunology – the roles of sugars, or glycans, in the immune system – to bridge this gap. During my PhD, […]
