ChE Seminar – “Engineering Next-Generation T Cells for Cancer Immunotherapy” by Dr. Yvonne Chen (University of California, Los Angeles)
Host: Dr. Lydia Contreras
The adoptive transfer of T cells expressing chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) has demonstrated clinical efficacy in the treatment of advanced cancers, with anti-CD19 CAR-T cells achieving up to 90% complete remission among patients with relapsed B-cell malignancies. However, challenges such as antigen escape and immunosuppression limit the long-term efficacy of … Read the rest »
ChE Seminar – “Single Polymer Dynamics of Architecturally Complex Materials: Entangled Solutions, Combs, and Bottlebrush Polymers” by Dr. Charles Schroeder (University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign)
Host: by Dr. Thomas Truskett
In this talk, I will discuss recent work from my group that effectively extends the field of single polymer dynamics to new materials, including polymers with complex topologies including rings, combs, and bottlebrush polymers. In the first part of the talk, polymer dynamics in semi-dilute unentangled and entangled DNA … Read the rest »

Host: Drs. Lea Hildebrandt Ruiz and David Allen
I will present results from the first field use of a pair of portable chambers we developed to study processing and growth of aerosol particles as they are exposed to gas phase composition and solar intensity that mirror that just outside. The chambers were located in … Read the rest »
ChE Pirkey Seminar – “Eco-efficient downstream processing of biofuels by process intensification” by Dr. Tony Kiss (University of Manchester, UK)
Host: Dr. Michael Baldea; Pirkey Endowed Lectureship
The need for greater sustainability for the production of fuels and chemicals has spurred significant research to substitute fossil fuel sources by renewable sources in industry. However, most research in biorefineries has focused on the conversion (e.g. thermo-chemical, biological, chemical) or pre-treatment parts, whereas the real cost … Read the rest »
