ChE Seminar – “Glycomaterials for Engineering Immunity and Tolerance” by Dr. Jeffrey Hubbell (University of Chicago)

Host: Dr. Adrianne Rosales; 2017-2018 Pirkey Lectureship

ABSTRACT

Adaptive immune responses are triggered particularly powerfully in the lymph nodes and in the lymphoid tissues associated with mucosae. We are developing nanomaterials and soluble polymers to exploit interstitial flow from the site of administration to the lymph nodes, using the material vectors to carry both antigen … Read the rest »

ChE Seminar – ““Phase Mechanics” of arrested colloidal gels: A new paradigm for non-equilibrium phase transitions in soft matter” by Dr. Roseanna Zia (Stanford University)

Host: Dr. Roger Bonnecaze

ABSTRACT

Understanding kinetically arrested phase transition in complex media, and its influence on structure-property relationships, has been identified as one of the Grand Challenges for the future of soft matter science. Colloidal gels and glasses are an important class of such materials and are the subject of an emergent field of … Read the rest »
