Dorsey, 1st place in the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Poster competition

February 12, 2020

Philip Dorsey, a Ph.D. student in Rebecca Schulman’s group in ChemBE won 1st place in the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Poster competition at this year’s AIChE. In Phil’s poster, entitled “DNA Attractor Patterns,” he shows how systems of molecules can collectively create and heal a chemical pattern over length scales of hundreds of microns, a […]

Seminar speaker Dr. Vince Rotello (Apr. 30 @ 10:30am, Maryland 110)

January 29, 2020

Topic: Interfacing Nanomaterials with Biology: From CRISPR to Antimicrobials A key issue in the use of nanomaterials is controlling how they interact with themselves and with the outer world. Our research program focuses on the tailoring of nanoparticles of surfaces for a variety of applications, coupling the atomic-level control provided by organic synthesis with the […]

Seminar speaker Dr. Sujit Datta (Apr. 16 @ 10:30am, Maryland 110) The Stanley Corrsin Lecture

January 29, 2020

Topic: Transport and Collective Behavior of active Matter in Porous Media Active particles are particles that can self-propel, enabling them to move and coordinate their behavior in unusual ways. Their transport is well-studied in homogeneous environments; however, how active particles behave in heterogeneous porous media—e.g. biological gels, tissues, soils, and sediments—remains poorly understood. We combine […]

January 29, 2020

Topic: Harnessing the power of electronics for biology In vitro models of biological systems are essential for our understanding of biological systems. In many cases where animal models have failed to translate to useful data for human diseases, physiologically relevant in vitro models can bridge the gap. Many difficulties exist in interfacing complex, 3D models […]

Seminar speaker Dr. Enrique Iglesia (Mar. 26 @ 10:30am, Maryland 110) The Florence W. Holtz Lecture

January 29, 2020

Topic: Tailoring Binding Sites and Their Environments in Catalysis The properties of molecular species that act as intermediates and transition states and of the binding sites that stabilize them act in concert to determine reactivity and selectivity for reactions catalyzed by surfaces. The dynamics of this interplay are specifically addressed here for acid-base and oxidation […]

January 29, 2020

Topic: Modeling, understanding, and treating neurodegeneration using engineering strategies Neurological disease imposes a significant socioeconomic burden, and the incidence of neurological disease is expected to rise concurrently with increases in worldwide life expectancy. However, no disease-modifying therapies are currently available for any acute or chronic neurodegenerative conditions, and the number of failed clinical trials in […]

January 29, 2020

Topic: Phase Diagrams of Complex Materials: From the Katana, Swiss Chocolates to Plastic Electronic Devices The physical organization, from the molecular to the macro-scale, of essentially all macromolecular materials can profoundly affect the properties and features of the resulting architectures. I will discuss how rules that explain the mechanical properties of the Katana and distinguishes […]

Seminar speaker Dr. Dionisios Vlachos (Feb. 6 @ 10:30am, Maryland 110)

January 29, 2020

Topic: Data Science for Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Over the past two decades, multiscale modeling has advanced tremendously, and several algorithms currently exist. Yet, our ability to apply first principles modeling to process design is seriously limited due to multiple challenges. In this talk, we will outline these challenges and introduce computational methods to overcome […]
