  2. [Illinois] Microbiology Seminar Series: Salmonella Resistance to Phagocytic Superoxide

    26 Nov 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): James M. Slauch

    "Salmonella cause 1.4 million cases of gastroenteritis and enteric fever per year in the US and lead all other foodborne bacterial pathogens as a cause of death. The long-term objectives of our research are to understand the molecular mechanisms by which Salmonella circumvents the host immune...

  3. [Illinois] BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Fall 2012: Understanding and Controlling Fibrotic Myocardium

    26 Nov 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Guy Genin

    Hypertension kills 1 in every 5000 Americans each year and affects the majority of those over the age of 55. Following prolonged hypertension, cardiac fibroblasts within the heart convert to myofibroblasts, a larger, contractile phenotype that produces fibrous connective tissue and thereby...

    26 Nov 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Heather Huntsman, Samantha Knoll

    Oct. 9, 2012Heather and Samantha spent part of Summer 2012 at the Max Planck Institute in Germany.This series is organized by PhD students who are appointed as Trainees in the NIH/NCI Midwest Cancer Nanotechnology Training Center (M-CNTC) and in the NSF IGERT in Cellular and Molecular Mechanics...

  8. [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...

  9. [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...

  10. Exciton Annihilation Simulator

    12 Dec 2012 | Tools | Contributor(s): Michael Heiber

    Simulates exciton-exciton annihilation behavior of polymer semiconductors measured by pump-probe spectroscopy

  11. Engineering Disorder in Opto-Electronics

    05 Dec 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jacob B. Khurgin

    GaN is a wide bandgap material which can on one hand withstand high power and high temperature operating conditions, and on the other hand has high saturation velocity needed for high frequency operation. This tremendous potential has not been fully realized yet and in this talk it will be...

  12. Is Graphene Alone in the Universe?

    05 Dec 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jacob B. Khurgin

    In this talk we show that many heterostructures based on III-V (InGaSb) and II-VI (HgCdTe) semiconductors can be engineered to have all the above properties nearly indistinguishable from those of graphene, while adding certain degree of versatility, such as ability to have not only...

    05 Dec 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Charles Diesendruck

    Biological structural materials have the intrinsic capability to self-reinforce, self-heal or remodel in response to macroscopic damage. Incorporation of these features in synthetic polymers could lead to materials with service lifetimes well beyond current generation materials, circumventing...

  17. [Illinois] Coping with the Unknown: A Guide for Bacteria and Bacteriologists

    07 Dec 2012 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Peter Freddolino

    Bacteria and other microorganisms rely on a complex sensory and regulatory network in order to respond appropriately to hazards and opportunities in their surroundings. This network, shaped over the evolutionary history of the organism, must provide an internal representation of frequently...

  19. [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...

  20. [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.
