Single-Cell BioMEMS Tools for Monitoring Cancer Immunotherapy: Nano Seminar Series

4 LeConte Hall
  • Prof. Rong Fan, Yale University, Biomedical Engineering
I will begin with discussing a novel bioMEMS device technology for single-cell immune function profiling, in particular, the co-detection of 40+ cytokines/chemokines at the level of single cells, representing the highest multiplexing recorded to date for a single-cell protein secretion assay. I will describe how this microdevice called IsoCode was conceived, evolved over generations, further...

Disentangling The Strange Metal: Nano Seminar Series

4 LeConte Hall
  • Prof. James Analytis, UC Berkeley, Physics
Our research focuses on the discovery and understanding of exotic materials manifesting novel quantum phenomena that have both fundamental and technological implications, particularly superconductors, exotic magnets and topological materials. Many of the physical problems we are interested in transcend a single material. Each compound can lend a new insight into a given question. Where possible,...

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: Silicon Carbide Micro-/Nanosystems for Harsh Environment Applications

Cory Hall
  • Roya Maboudian, Professor, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of California, Berkeley
I will present recent advances, by our group and others, in the materials science and manufacturing technology of SiC thin film and low dimensional structures, and some applications that these advances have enabled ranging from harsh environment sensing to energy technologies.

3D Human Brain Models and Nanoplatforms for Prognostics and Therapeutics of Neurological Disorders: Nano Seminar Series

4 LeConte Hall
  • Prof. Hansang Cho, Univ of North Carolina, Charlotte / Biomedical Engineering
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia. However, no definitive cure for AD exists due to lack of limited model systems that accurately reflect AD-related immunity in human brains, nor for a drug development strategy for delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and assessment of drug efficacy in human brains. Here, I present micro-scaled 3D environments that...

Metabolite-based Diagnostics Enabled by MEMS Devices: Nano Seminar Series

4 LeConte Hall
  • Prof. Cristina Davis, UC Davis, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering
Human “breath analysis” provides a wide range of opportunities for diagnosis of pathophysiological conditions in a non-invasive and potentially inexpensive way. Ultimately these devices will be fully utilized in medical point-of-care locations in clinical offices.

Material Challenges and Opportunities in Next Generation Electronics: From Non-Silicon Electronics to Artificial Neural Networks: Nano Seminar Series

4 LeConte Hall
  • Prof. Jeehwan Kim, MIT, Mechanical Engineering & MSE
Our team has invented a new crystalline growth concept, termed “remote epitaxy”, which can copy/paste crystalline information of the wafer remotely through graphene, thus generating single-crystalline films on graphene. The graphene-coated substrates can be infinitely reused. Thus, the remote epitaxy technique can cost-efficiently produce freestanding single-crystalline films.
