CBE Seminar: “Robots That Eat, Breathe and Bleed”

Abstract Modern robots lack the multifunctional, interconnected chemical systems found in living organisms and, consequently, exhibit reduced efficiency and autonomy. At the same time, new advancements in chemistry are enabling synthetic materials with capabilities that surpass biological materials. This talk will discuss how advances in electrochemistry and soft materials can transform the way we build […]

CBE Seminar: “Engineering Microsystems and Computational Pipelines to Understand the Brain”

Abstract My lab is interested in engineering micro systems and computational tools to address questions in systems neuroscience, developmental biology, and cell biology that are difficult to answer with conventional techniques. We are particularly interested in the questions of how the brain is assembled during development (and changes during aging) and information processed by brain […]

PSOC Webinar: “Cancer Cell Unjamming as Predictive Tumor Marker” (Josef A. Käs)

CBE Seminar: “Systems Biology of Glycosylation: Examples from Cancer Biology, Inflammatory Disease and SARS-CoV-2 Infection”

Abstract Glycosylation is a common and complex post-translational modification that is orchestrated in all mammalian cells. Glycan structures thus formed either absolutely control or fine-tune various biological processes. These include the half-life of biologics in circulation, the rates of leukocyte-endothelial cell adhesion interaction during inflammation, tumorigenesis and the kinetics of cancer metastasis. The pattern of […]

CBE Seminar: “Life in a Tight Spot: How Bacteria Move in Heterogeneous Media”

Abstract Bacterial motility is central to processes in agriculture, the environment, and medicine. While motility is typically studied in homogeneous environments, many bacterial habitats—e.g., soils, sediments, and biological gels/tissues—are heterogeneous porous media. Here, we use studies of E. coli in transparent 3D porous media to demonstrate how confinement in a heterogenous medium fundamentally alters motility. In particular, […]
