Doctoral Dissertation Defense: “Miniaturizing High Throughput Droplet Assays for Ultrasensitive Molecular Detection on a Portable Platform”

The Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania and Dr. David Issadore are pleased to announce the Doctoral Dissertation Defense of Venkata “Ravi” Yelleswarapu. The public is welcome to attend.

MEAM Seminar: “Data-driven Discovery of Governing Physical Laws in Engineering, Physics, and Biology”

A major challenge in the study of dynamical systems is that of model discovery: turning data into models that are not just predictive, but provide insight into the nature of the underlying dynamical system that generated the data. This problem is made more difficult by the fact that many systems of interest exhibit parametric dependencies […]

Doctoral Dissertation Defense: “Hyperpolarized Carbon-13 Magnetic Resonance Imaging as a Tool for Assessing Lung Transplantation Outcomes”

The Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania and Dr. Rahim Rizi are pleased to announce the Doctoral Dissertation Defense of Sarmad Siddiqui. The public is welcome to attend. Location: Donner Auditorium, Basement HUP.

The Joy of Being Faculty: How to Apply for a Faculty Position

This professional development workshop is designed to provide Penn Engineering graduate students and postdocs with a richer understanding of what it is like to pursue a career in academia from those that have navigated the process successfully. Deputy Dean Kathleen J. Stebe (SEAS) will lead this extemporaneous panel discussions with a mix of both tenured […]

BE Grace Hopper Lecture: Powering tumor cell migration through heterogeneous microenvironments

To move through tissues, cancer cells must navigate a complex, heterogeneous network of fibers in the extracellular matrix.  This network of fibers also provides chemical, structural and mechanical cues to the resident cells.  In this talk, I will describe my lab’s efforts to understand the forces driving cell movements in the tumor microenvironment.  Combining tissue […]

MedTech Panel Series, Part 1: Executives – “From bench to boardroom”

Presented by the students of BE 370 (Medical Device Development): Come to the MedTech Panel Series to hear about these experiences and more from some of the most successful founders and CEOs in the industry! Our panelists will share their stories on how they took innovation from the bench to the boardroom and built multi-million […]

Doctoral Dissertation Defense: Tissue Engineered Nigrostriatal Pathway for Treatment of Parkinson’s Disease

Location TBD

BE Seminar Series: Heterogeneous, Multi-Scale and Patient-Speci C Pharmacodynamic Systems Models for Cancer with Clinical Applications

Abstract: Systems models of key signaling pathways in cancer have been extensively used to understand and explore the mechanisms of action of drugs and growth factors on cancer cell signaling. In general, such models predict the effect of mechanical or chemical stimuli (for e.g. drug dosage) in terms of activity of one or more key […]

BE Seminar Series: Synchronization is Robust in a Computational Model of Neuronal Network Dynamics and Injury

At the macroscale, synchronization between brain regions is believed to be important for memory and attention. Injury, including mild traumatic brain injury, can both increase and decrease synchronization as measured by functional MRI, but these changes are not well understood and are unknown at a smaller spatial scale. Here, we examined how injury affects the […]

BE Seminar Series: Applied Topology in Biological Systems

Though rooted in pure mathematics, algebraic topology has recently enabled novel analysis techniques for biological data. Specifically, the method called persistent homology which employs ideas from topology to characterize the voids in a complex network. In this talk, I will briefly introduce persistent homology and give an overview of how we have recently applied this […]
