  1. [Illinois] Bioengineering Seminar Series: The Role of Cell Geometry and Adhesion Ligand Presentation in Guiding Stem Cell Differentiation

    26 Nov 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Kristopher A. Kilian

    "Substrates that are designed to mimic the extracellular matrix are useful tools for studying cellular processes. Recently, we showed how micropatterning single mesenchymal stem cells can be used to reveal geometric cues that guide lineage specification. Shapes that promote a contractile...

  2. [Illinois] BioEngineering Seminar Series: Novel Receptor-Targeting Radiolabeled Peptides for Cancer Imaging

    26 Nov 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Yubin Miao

    Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) and melanocortin-1 (MC1) receptors are attractive molecular targets for cancer imaging due to their over-expressions on cancer cells. GnRH and alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH) peptides can bind the GnRH and MC1 receptors with nanomolar...
