Nanoscale Interfaces for Cancer Immunoengineering: Nano Webinar Series

Zoom Session
  • Dr. Derfogail Delcassian, UC Berkeley, BioE
The zoom link for this meeting is https://berkeley.zoom.us/j/94940078122?pwd=NmFIbVg2bC9selhNSGtrdjFBM0h4dz09 In this talk, we show the development of bioengineered nanoscale interfaces that can be used to communicate with immune cells. Abnormal immune cell behaviour is implicated in a wide variety of diseases from cancer, to infection, to auto-immune destruction of host tissue. T cells...

Microscale Insights into Tumor Invasion: Nano Webinar Series

Zoom Session
  • Prof. Sanjay Kumar, UC Berkeley, BioE and CBE
The zoom link for this meeting is https://berkeley.zoom.us/j/99558386700?pwd=NjVKTGdmc2lPSFJiNVM3YzNNMnpnQT09 The invasion of solid tumors is a highly physical process involving adhesion and transmission of mechanical force against the solid-state tumor microenvironment. Here I describe our group’s efforts to use microscale engineering approaches to model and mechanistically dissect tumor...

EECS Colloquium: When the Lab Goes Loco

Zoom Webinar
  • Mark Yim, Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Director of the GRASP Lab, University of Pennsylvania
While modular reconfigurable robots hold many promises for being adaptable for planetary exploration, they tend to be expensive. A theme has emerged in my lab - that of aiming for low-cost (loco) systems. This talk will present some general principles towards designing low cost systems while also presenting specific examples of novel devices ranging from mechatronic components (sensors and...

EECS Colloquium: Balancing covariates in randomized experiments using the Gram–Schmidt walk

Zoom Webinar
  • Daniel Spielman, Yale
Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) are the principal way we estimate the effectiveness of new medications, procedures, policies, and interventions. In a typical medical trial, the subjects are divided into two (or more) groups. One group of subjects is given the new medicine, and the other is given a placebo or old medicine. Randomization is used to ensure that these test and control groups are...
