[Illinois] Cooperation and Construction: From Multicellularity to Eusociality
28 Apr 2014  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Corina Tarnita
The evolutionary trajectory of life on earth is one of increasing size and complexity. Yet the standard equations of evolutionary dynamics describe mutation and selection among similar organisms that compete on the same level of organization. I will try to outline a mathematical theory that...

[Illinois] Biomaterials to Replicate the Form and Function of Inhomogeneous Structures in the Body
28 Apr 2014  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Brendan Harley
The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a complex organization of structural proteins such as collagens and proteoglycans. Understanding that the ECM is dynamic and often spatially patterned or heterogeneous over the lengthscale of traditional biomaterials, we are developing instructive biomaterials...
