PICS Colloquium: “Genetic testing and adverse selection”

Technology is dramatically driving down the cost of sequencing genetic data and increasing the quality of predictions made with this data. A standard concern is that these predictions could impair […]

CBE Seminar: “Carbon Capture and Utilization in Flowing Oceanwater: A New Frontier in Photocatalysis” (Shu Hu, Yale)

Abstract: Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) are critical for managing anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Great strides have been made in electrification so far, but there are a handful […]

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

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 […]

John A. Quinn Distinguished Lecture in Chemical Engineering: “Exploring the Physics, Materials Science, and Biological Implications of Polyelectrolyte Complexation” (Matthew Tirrell, University of Chicago)

Abstract The richness of liquid-liquid phase separation behavior in mixtures of oppositely-charged polyelectrolyte has been greatly illuminated recently in the polymer physics literature. Precise determinations of phase diagrams, measurements of […]

CBE Seminar: “Creating Real Steak Without the Cow: Using Insights from Wine and Biopharmaceutical Production to Commercialize Cultivated Meat”

Abstract Between a growing global population and increased consumption of meat from developing countries, it is projected that meat production will have to increase by at least 60% by 2050 […]

CBE Seminar: “Role of Water in Underwater Adhesion” (Ali Dhinojwala, University of Akron)

Abstract Roughness and wetness can disrupt interfacial bonding and reduce adhesion, and this phenomenon is of relevance for many biological and engineering applications. I will discuss how roughness affects both […]

CBE Seminar: “Dynamics and Reactivity of Supported Catalysts in the Subnanometer Regime” (Ayman Karim, Virginia Tech)

Abstract Supported noble metal catalysts are extensively used in industry and their catalytic performance is strongly affected by particle size and shape. In the last decade, supported single atoms and […]

CBE Seminar: “Deep Learning-Enabled Design of Functional DNA-Binding Properties” (Cameron Glasscock, University of Washington)

Abstract DNA-binding proteins (DBPs) play critical roles in biology and biotechnology, and there has been considerable interest in the engineering of DBPs with new functions or altered specificities. While there […]

CBE Seminar: “Minimally Invasive Neuroelectronics” (Anqi Zhang, Stanford)

Abstract Neuroelectronic interfaces have enabled significant advances in both fundamental neuroscience research and the treatment of neurological disorders. However, current neuroelectronic devices have a clear trade-off between invasiveness and spatial […]

CBE Seminar: “Systems Engineering for Addressing Critical Challenges in Viral Vector Manufacturing” (Francesco Destro, MIT)

Abstract The demand for viral vectors is poised to soon exceed current production capacities, driven by the surging number of clinical trials for gene and cell therapies. Unfortunately, current manufacturing […]
