Mechano- and Visco-NPS: An Electronic Method to Measure the Mechanical Properties of Cells: Nano Seminar Series

4 LeConte Hall
  • Prof. Lydia Sohn, UC Berkeley, Mechanical Engineering
We have developed an efficient, label-free method of screening cells for their phenotypic profile, which we call Node-Pore Sensing (NPS). NPS involves measuring the modulated current pulse caused by a cell transiting a microfluidic channel that has been segmented by a series of inserted nodes. Previously, we showed that when segments between the nodes are functionalized with different...

Molecular Perspective on Nanoscale Transport: Nano Seminar Series

4 LeConte Hall
  • Prof. David Limmer, UC Berkeley, Chemistry
Understanding how mass, energy, or charge are transported on small scales is challenging, as standard hydrodynamic descriptions developed for macroscopic phenomena need not remain valid. On small scales, matter is discrete, thermal fluctuations render currents stochastic quantities, and nonlinear response is ubiquitous. In this talk, I will discuss some recent efforts to develop a molecular...

View from the Top: Gary Dickerson: Navigating the Perfect Storm: A New Semiconductor Playbook for the A.I. Era

Banatao Auditorium, 3rd floor Sutardja Dai Hall
  • Gary Dickerson, President and CEO, Applied Materials
The pace of change is accelerating with technology promising an ever-brighter future. Artificial intelligence and big data will touch many areas of our lives, transforming industries and the global economy. To unlock the full potential of A.I. and Big Data, we need a new industry playbook for semiconductor design and manufacturing.

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...
