ChE Seminar – “Elucidating Electrochemical Energy Materials through Versatile Electrochemistry” by Dr. Joaquín Rodríguez-López (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

Host: Dr. Delia Milliron

ABSTRACT:

My group creates electroanalytical techniques and strategies to control materials and interfacial reactivity for applications in energy storage and conversion. In this seminar, I will discuss how new polymeric and low-dimensional materials, as well as an expanded electroanalytical toolbox for understanding interfaces and nanomaterials, are allowing us to discover new … Read the rest »

ChE Seminar – “Decoupling Ion Transport and Modulus in Polymeric Ionic Liquids” by Gabriel Sanoja

ABSTRACT:

Polymeric ionic liquids (i.e. PILs) are single ion-conducting materials that exhibit the thermal and electrochemical stability of ionic liquids and the mechanical properties of polymers. Although PILs are exciting for a variety of applications in energy conversion and storage, the tradeoff between mechanics and conduction remains an important limitation in materials design. Herein, we … Read the rest »

ChE Seminar – “Engineering Hierarchical Polymers to Control Biomolecular Transport” by Danielle Mai

ABSTRACT:

New materials that control specific biomolecular transport will be central to numerous technologies including biosensors, bioseparations, and tissue engineering. Natural systems such as nuclear pores routinely regulate molecular transport with remarkable specificity (>99.9% of proteins rejected) and speed (1,000 proteins per second per pore), but the biophysical mechanisms underlying selective nuclear transport remain unclear. … Read the rest »

ChE Seminar – “Protein Engineering of Multi-functional Biomaterials for Regenerative Medicine” by Dr. Sarah Heilshorn (Stanford University)

Host: Dr. Adrianne Rosales

ABSTRACT:

Stem cell transplantation is a promising therapy for a myriad of debilitating diseases and injuries; however, current expansion and transplantation protocols are inadequate. My lab designs biomaterials to overcome these challenges using biomimetic, protein-engineering technology. By integrating protein science methodologies with simple polymer physics models, we manipulate the polypeptide chain … Read the rest »

The ChE Graduate Leadership Council Presents: “Photoresponsive hydrogels for studying and directing organoid formation” by Dr. Kristi Anseth

Host: The ChE Graduate Leadership Council

ABSTRACT:

During morphogenesis, flat cell layers buckle and branch to form three dimensional structures that develop into complex tissues.  Many of these processes are intimately coupled to the underlying extracellular matrix properties and the ability of the matrix to resist cell-generated traction forces.  To study such dynamic events requires … Read the rest »
