Abstract

The Beckman Institute Graduate Student Seminar Series presents the work of outstanding graduate students working in Beckman research groups. The seminars begin at Noon in Beckman Institute Room 1005 and are open to the public.

The Director's Seminar Lecture Series was designed to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration between Beckman faculty. Open to the entire UIUC campus, the seminars are held monthly throughout the academic year and offer attendees the opportunity to learn about fellow Beckman researchers and their fields of study.

Sponsored by

The Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is an interdisciplinary research institute devoted to leading-edge research in the physical sciences, computation, engineering, biology, behavior, cognition, and neuroscience.

The Institute's primary mission is to foster interdisciplinary work of the highest quality, transcending many of the limitations inherent in traditional university organizations and structures. The Institute was founded on the premise that reducing the barriers between traditional scientific and technological disciplines can yield research advances that more conventional approaches cannot.

  1. [Illinois] Beckman Director's Seminar - Quantitative Phase Imaging

    26 Nov 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Gabriel Popescu

    "Ever since the invention of the microscope in the 17th century, it has been observed that live cells are transparent under visible illumination, i.e. they do not absorb (or scatter) light significantly. Thus, a magnified image of cells will generally exhibit low contrast. In order to overcome...

  2. [Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Dispersion-relation Spectroscopy of Intracellular Transport

    18 Dec 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Ru Wang

    The interior of a living cell is a busy place. Molecular motors move materials along prescribed biopolymer tracks. This sort of active transport is required to rapidly move products over large distances within the cell, where passive diffusion is too slow. Just as understanding the flow of...

  3. [Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Membrane Sculpting by F-BAR Domains Studied by Molecular Dynamics Simulations

    18 Dec 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Hang Yu

    Interplay between cellular membranes and their peripheral proteins drives many processes in eukaryotic cells. Proteins of the Bin/Amphiphysin/Rvs (BAR) domain family, in particular, play a role in cellular morphogenesis, for example curving planar membranes into tubular membranes. However, it is...

  4. [Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: What can listeners learn about different speakers' voices?

    01 Feb 2013 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Alison M. Trude

    The research in learning extends from studies of the very young to fully mature adults. How do we learn about the world and how to act in it? Research in advanced knowledge acquisition is directed toward instructional strategies that allow people to master complex concepts, such as mathematical...

  5. [Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Quantitative Phase Imaging for live cell studies

    01 Feb 2013 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mustafa Mir

    Faculty members in the Bioimaging Science and Technology group develop new imaging technologies for medical diagnosis and treatment, as well as new methods for discovering the ways our bodies work. Because of the extensive imaging facilities at the Beckman Institute, we are able to explore very...

  6. [Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Neural Correlates of Externally and Internally Originating Emotional Distraction Effects on Working Memory

    20 Jun 2013 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Alexandru D. Iordan

    Balanced emotion-cognition interactions are critical for healthy functioning. Clinical studies suggest that symptoms of impaired executive control and enhanced emotional distractibility observed in affective disorders are linked to dysfunctional interactions between a dorsal executive system and...

  7. [Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Frontoparietal traffic signals: A fast optical imaging study of preparatory dynamics in response mode switching

    20 Jun 2013 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Pauline L. Baniqued

    Coordination between networks of brain regions is important for optimal cognitive performance, especially in attention demanding tasks. With the event-related optical signal (EROS; a measure of changes in optical scattering due to neuronal activity) we can characterize rapidly evolving network...

  8. [Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Graphene Atomic Shrink Wrap for Nanosandwiching Biomolecules

    20 Jun 2013 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Joshua D. Wood

    Graphene, a two-dimensional honeycomb sheet of carbon atoms, has been hotly scrutinized for its desirable electronic applications. Still, graphene has hardly been used as an atomically thin membrane. Graphene membranes are conformal to surfaces, entrapping liquids, gases, and nanoparticles....
