Carlo Montemagno presented a research seminar to the BioEnegineering and MEMS programs at the University of Louisville on February 16, 2011. The talk is available as steaming video at

with permission granted by C. Montemagno, R. Cohn and UofL

It presents a summary of Montemagno's research activities from 200--the present, and his plans for future energy and computational systems based on unconventional applications of natural biological proteins and biochemistries.


Carlo Montemagno is Dean of Engineering at U. Cincinnati. He is one of the notable pioneers in the adaptation of protein machinery to engineering applications in MEMS, energy harvesting and drug/chemical separations.
