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...
[Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Graphene Atomic Shrink Wrap for Nanosandwiching Biomolecules
20 Jun 2013 | | 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....

Professor Emad Tajkhorshid speaks to University Laboratory High School students about his research in Computational Studies of Membranes and Membrane Associated PhenomenaMembrane proteins are of critical importance for all living cells. They are responsible for exchange of materials and...
[Illinois] BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Fall 2011: Pluripotency and Directed Differentiation of Human Pluripotent Stem Cells
14 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Fei Wang
Our long-term goal is to define new conditions and molecular programs that govern fate decisions of human pluripotent stem cells such as human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs). The knowledge is essential if we are ultimately to use these cells for...
[Illinois] BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Fall 2011: Bio-inspired Microenvironments Regulate Cell Fate
14 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Adam Engler
Epigenetic regulation of stem cell fate by intrinsic properties of the surrounding extracellular matrix (ECM), e.g. stiffness, organization, composition, etc., appears to be an important yet underappreciated contributor in development, disease, and aging. I will describe our efforts to develop...
[Illinois] SIAM Student Chapter Colloquium: Data Intensive Science: New Opportunities, Old Challenges
14 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Robert Brunner
Science, and society in general, is experiencing fundamental change. First is the explosion of data inundating everything from Astronomy to Zoology. Second is the severe impact of the economic recession and the federal budget deficit. Taken together, these challenges illuminate the need for new...
