[Illinois] BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Spring 2013: Using Primary Cells for Bioengineering
14 May 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Mahendra S. Rao
[Illinois] BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Spring 2012: Analyzing Protein Complexes from Mammalian Cells at the Single Molecular Level
14 May 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Yang Kevin Xiang
Proteins perform most cellular functions in macromolecular complexes. Quantitative information on macromolecular complexes is scarce. The same protein often participates in different complexes to exhibit diverse functionality. Current ensemble approaches of identifying cellular protein...
[Illinois] BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Spring 2012: Mesenchymal Stem Cells Contribute to Vascular Growth in Skeletal Muscle in Response to Eccentric Exercise
14 May 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Heather Huntsman
Tissue health is critically dependent on vascularization to support growth and function following injury. In addition to multiple implications in the regenerative potential of other tissues, mesenchymal stem cells have been shown to promote vessel formation both in vivo and in vitro. Our recent...

14 May 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Mohamud Yusuf Mohamed
Dr. Timothy Fan, Associate Professor of Veterinary Clinical Medicine
[Illinois] BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Spring 2012: Exploring Academic Collaboration with the University of Cape Coast, Ghana with the Global Health Initiative at UIUC
14 May 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Erich Lidstone
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has a longstanding history of excellent research with regard to science and engineering, and the Global Health Initiative (GHI) at UIUC hopes to apply this research expertise toward the development of low-cost and resource-limited diagnostic tools...
[Illinois] BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Spring 2012: Direct Write Assembly of 3D Microperiodic Hydrogel Scaffolds For Stem Cell Culture and Tissue Engineering
14 May 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Lucas Osterbur
Stem cells have demonstrated remarkable potential for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine through their ability for self-renewal and controlled differentiation. However, the development of optimal three dimensional (3D) scaffolds that overcome the limitations of 2D cell culture remains...
[Illinois] BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Spring 2012: DNA Mediated Synthesis of Novel Gold Nanoflowers for Diagnostic and Therapeutic Applications
14 May 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Bryan M. Wong
My research is focused at exploring the applications of a new class of gold nanoflower structure that exhibits interesting cellular uptake properties, tunable size and optical properties, and an exceptionally simple synthesis protocol. These properties make it an ideal platform for cancer...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Guest Speaker Dr. Greg Underhill
14 May 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham, George Daley, Greg Underhill
In this lecture, Dr. Greg Underhill explains the relations of stem cell fate in correspondence to biosensors. The lecture starts out with a brief introduction of stem cells and a liver and pancreas differentiation. In the...
[Illinois] CNST 2012: Panel Discussion
13 May 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Beniamino Barbieri, Anthony Leggett, Tayo Akinwande, Piotr Grodzinski, Lloyd Whitman
CNST Workshop 2012May 2–3, 2012Showcasing University of Illinois research in bionanotechnology/nanomedicine, nanoelectronics/nanophotonics, and nanomaterials/nanomanufacturing, leading to cross-campus and industry collaborationsNational Center for Supercomputing Applications Micro and...
[Illinois] CNST 2012: Concluding Session
13 May 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Irfan Ahmad, Lizanne DeStefano
[Illinois] CNST 2013: "High Power Lithium Ion Microbatteries from Interdigitated Three-Dimensional Nanoporous Electrodes"

[Illinois] ECE 416 Avidin-Biotin and Surface Functionalization I
08 May 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, we start off by taking a look at X-Ray Crystallography and how it is used to understand how biomolecules binding works. The x-ray data is processed by computer algorithms to determine coordinates of all atoms in...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Fluorescence III and Homogeneous Assays I
In this lecture, we continue the discussion of Fluorescence. Examples of results are shown from the fluorescent dyes and how they may be used from a fluorescent microscope. Getting results and images from Fluorescence Scanners are...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Impedance Based Sensors II
10 Apr 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, we start off with a light review of the nanopore sequencing method which is based upon having a carefully bioengineered pore that can induce different changes in charge blockages as different base pairs go through...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Lumerical Optical Simulation
In this lecture, we looked at lumerical optical simulation. The motivation to pursue this topic is because there is now software available that allows us to conduct simulations to visualize Electromagnetic field locations, to...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Fluorescence I
In this lecture, we discussed Fluorescence molecules and how they can be used for detection of other molecules. The molecules are considered to have high energy states, which helps them with their detection. The photons discussed...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Fluorescence II
In this lecture, we start with a revision of the common organic dyes and the photostability and quenching concepts. Quenching is then discussed in more detail and the difference between self-quenching and external quenching....
[Illinois] ECE 416 Optical Sensors II
27 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, there is a review of the previous lecture of SPR Sensors along with Reflection Interference Spectroscopy. We learned that as we go to longer wavelengths, the refractive index is more constant. Then, we looked at...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Optical Sensors III
In this lecture, we finished our discussion over optical sensors. We started with discussing a photon moving between 2 mirrors with 100% efficiency, the photon gets to "sample" the media between the mirrors with no loss. This was...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Impedance Based Sensors I
In this lecture, we were introduced to the concept of a new sensor called the impedance-based Biosensor. Biomolecules are originally charged and therefore there is a need to determine the charge of the molecule before using it on...
