Searching For Life Basking in the Warmth of Other Suns

Monday, October 06, 2014 5:30pm - 7:00pm

Just three years ago the prospect of finding temperate, rocky worlds around other stars was still the subject of science fiction: none had been found and reasonable estimates put us years or decades away from such a momentous discovery. All of that has changed very recently on the heels of the extraordinarily successful NASA Kepler mission. By searching for the tiny diminutions of starlight indicative of an eclipsing planet, Kepler has produced thousands of new planet candidates orbiting distant stars.

Biomedical Engineering Seminar: Megan Frisk, Ph.D. Science Translational Medicine

Thursday, October 02, 2014 9:00am - 10:00am

Minding the Gap: Research and Publishing in Translational Medicine Megan Frisk, Ph.D. Associate Editor, Science Translational Medicine The translational research path is a continuum, with steps ranging from basic biomedical research to clinical trials to commercialization. This path is not as smooth or as straight as often envisioned--it's really more of a network of research that works toward a common goal of improving patient health. Sometimes, translation also works in the reverse, where clinical problems feed back into preclinical or basic research.

Joint Materials/Solid Mechanics Seminar Series: “Elucidating the Mechanics of Clathrin-Mediated Endocytosis”

Monday, September 15, 2014 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME) is a key metabolic pathway that plays a central role in the delivery of nutrients and drug carriers into cells. In this work, we model the interactions of lipid membranes with different types of protein scaffolds and active forces to provide mechanistic insights into CME, especially, in the high-tension regime. To this end, we develop and employ an extended theoretical framework of lipid membranes that entertains spatial heterogeneity and local anisotropy that could arise from membrane-protein interactions.
