Engineering Phase Separation of Proteins in Cells: Nano Seminar series

180 Tan Hall
  • Prof. Allie Obermeyer, Columbia, Chemical Engineering
Protein de-mixing has been implicated in the organization of cellular components. These phase-separated membraneless compartments create distinct environments that are essential to cellular processes ranging from cell signaling to gene expression. Several membraneless organelles appear to have the same physical properties as complex coacervates – liquid-liquid phase separated mixtures of...

Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP): 3D Printing at the Intersection of Materials, Process and Design: Nano Seminar series

180 Tan Hall
  • Prof. Joseph M. DeSimone, Stanford University, ChemE & MSE & Business
The production of polymer products relies largely on age-old molding techniques. A major reason for this is that additive methods have not delivered meaningful alternatives to traditional processes—until now. In this talk, I will describe Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) technology, which embodies a convergence of advances in software, hardware, and materials to bring the digital...

Autonomous Big Data Collection and Analysis in Electron Microscopy: Nano Seminar series

180 Tan Hall
  • Dr. Peter Ercius, LBNL, Molecular Foundry
The promise of incorporating "big data" into the advancement of science is that it will accelerate our ability to discover new materials and phenomena; however, significant hurdles to this exciting future still exist. Electron microscopy (EM) is known for its ability to study materials at the sub-nanometer scale down to the single atom level. Recent advances in detectors and lens optics also...
