ChE Seminar – “Speed-dating for small RNAs with the Hfq chaperone” by Dr. Sarah Woodson (Johns Hopkins University)

Host: Drs. Lydia Contreras and Hal Alper; Cockrell School Endowed Lectureship

ABSTRACT: 

Small non-coding RNAs (sRNAs) regulate gene expression post-transcription in response to stress and other environmental signals. sRNAs contribute to bacterial pathogenesis and environmental adaptation. sRNA regulation requires the protein Hfq, which chaperones base pairing between sRNAs and their target mRNAs.  Hfq binds sRNAs … Read the rest »

ChE Seminar – “Computational Design of New Materials for Separations and Energy Storage” by Dr. Edward Maginn (University of Notre Dame)

Host: Dr. Venkat Ganesan

ABSTRACT:

Chemical separation technologies such as distillation account for tremendous amount of the world’s energy consumption. As a consequence, the National Research Council has called for the development of alternatives to distillation to meet the Energy Intensity of Chemical Processing Grand Challenge. In the first part of this talk, I will … Read the rest »

ChE Texas Distinguished Faculty Lectureship Seminar – “High-Capacity Concentration Gradient Cathodes for Next-generation Lithium Batteries” by Dr. Yang-Kook Sun (Hanyang University)

Host: Dr. C. Buddie Mullins; Texas Distinguished Faculty Lectureship

ABSTRACT:

Lithium ion batteries (LIBs) have the highest gravimetric and volumetric energy densities among the commercialized batteries that can provide electric drives for plug-in hybrid (PHEVs) and fully electric vehicles (EVs). Despite the increasing utilization of the LIBs, the share of electric vehicles in the world’s … Read the rest »
