Biomedical Engineering Seminar - "Engineering human tissues for regenerative medicine and modeling of disease"

Thursday, April 02, 2015 9:00am - 10:00am

Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, Ph.D Mikati Professor of Biomedical Engineering Professor of Medical Sciences Columbia University Tissue engineering is becoming increasingly successful at authentic representation of the actual environmental milieu of tissue development, regeneration and disease. A classical paradigm of tissue engineering is to grow tissues for implantation by using human stem cells, biomaterial scaffolds (templates for tissue formation) and bioreactors (culture systems providing environmental control, molecular and physical signaling).

Honors Information Session

Thursday, April 02, 2015 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Barus & Holley, Room 190

Intended for all sophomores and juniors interested in honors.

 

Joint Materials/Solid Mechanics Seminar Series “The Wrinkling, Folding and Crumpling of Thin Nanotube Films”

Monday, April 06, 2015 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Erik K. Hobbie, Department of Physics, Department of Coatings and Polymeric Materials, Graduate Program in Materials and Nanotechnology - North Dakota State University Fargo, ND 58108 Thin films of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) show considerable promise for applications in flexible electronics, but the deformation mechanics of such films is potentially complex. Additionally, the most promising applications place stringent demands on nanotube purity and band structure.
