Designing Dynamic Biomaterials for Controlling the Cell Environment

McLean 218A, Stevens Institute of Technology

Dr. April M. Kloxin, Assistant Professor
University of Delaware
Departments of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering
 
ABSTRACT
The nano- to macro-scale physical and chemical properties of the environment that surrounds a cell are known to play an important role in cell function and fate. Yet, less is known about how changes in these properties influence biological functions. For example, driven by transient bidirectional crosstalk between cells and the extracellular matrix (ECM), cell differentiation and tissue regeneration are complex processes that often involve the presentation of multiple cues that are tightly regulated over multiple time and size scales. Studying such dynamic processes in vitro remains challenging. Biomaterials, particularly hydrogels, have emerged as tools to probe how changes in the microenvironment regulate cell behavior towards directing cellular functions in the treatment of disease and regeneration of tissue. Engineering hydrogel-based materials from the bottom up enables controlled presentation of selected cues at the appropriate time and place within the cellular niche to answer questions of both fundamental and applied importance. This talk will focus on simple strategies to impart highly regulated property control by synthesizing monomers capable of forming hydrogels in the presence of cells and subsequently allowing triggered modification (e.g., light, enzymes, or reducing conditions) to tune the network’s physical or chemical properties. In particular, we will highlight recent results, as well as preliminary experiments, in understanding the critical cues that direct progenitor cell fate within collagenous tissues during regeneration or disease, including ligament repair, lung fibrosis, and cancer recurrence.

Mindtools: What Does it Mean to be Literate in the Age of Google?

Babbio 104

Howe School Seminar

Daniel Russell, Ph.D., Research Scientist, Google

ABSTRACT:  What does it mean to be literate at a time when you can search billions of texts in less than 300 milliseconds? Although you might think that "literacy" is one of the great constants that transcends the ages, the skills of a literate person have changed substantially over time as texts and technology allow for new kinds of reading and understanding. Knowing how to read is just the beginning of it — knowing how to frame a question, pose a query, how to interpret the texts you find, how to organize and use the information you discover, how to understand your metacognition — these are all critical parts of being literate as well. In this talk Dan will review what literacy is today, in the age of Google, and show how some very surprising and unexpected skills will turn out to be critical in the years ahead. We have created powerful new tools for the mind. Thing is, those tools are constantly evolving and changing even as the things they operate on change as well. This puts us in the position of having to learn how to find tools, and understanding the substrate on which they work. Literacy in these days is not just reading and writing, but also understanding what knowledge tools are available, and how they can be used in interesting new ways.


BIO:  Daniel Russell is a research scientist at Google where he works in the area of search quality, with a focus on understanding what makes Google users happy in their use of web search. He is sometimes called a search anthropologist.

From 2000 until mid-2005, Dan was a senior research scientist in the User Sciences and Experience Research (USER) lab at IBM’s Almaden Research Center (San José, CA). The lab’s main interests are in the areas of designing the complete user experience of computation, especially in the domains of highly sensed / attentive environments, formalizing the characteristics of human behaviors for input mechanisms, and creating new ways of emplacing computation into the work space. As an individual contributor, Dan is best known for his recent work on the large, interactive IBM BlueBoard system for simple collaboration, and for his studies of sensemaking behavior of people dealing with understanding large amounts of information.

Prior to his engagement at IBM, Dan managed the User Experience Research group at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center. Returning to PARC after a nearly 5 year stint at Apple, UER @ PARC spent 9 months working on the design of a complete user experience for a new class of information appliance. The group designed and implemented Madcap, a highly interactive browser for large, richly coordinated media collections.

Until September of 1997, Dan was the Director of the Knowledge Management Technologies laboratory within Apple’s Advanced Technology Group (ATG). In this capacity, he coordinated the research efforts of five areas (Intelligent Systems, Spoken Language, User Experience, Interaction Design, and Information Technology) to provide an amalgamating, integrative direction to the research as a whole. Before KMT, he managed Apple’s User Experience Research group, which studied issues of sensemaking, cognitive modelling of analysis tasks, synchronous and asynchronous collaboration, shared awareness of individual state, joint work coordination, and knowledge-based use of complex, heterogenous information.

Prior to joining Apple in 1993, Dan was a Member of the Research Staff at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) in the User Interface Research group studying uses of information visualization techniques. Before that, from 1984 through 1991 he led the "Instructional Design Environment" project (with both Richard Burton and Tom Moran) to develop a practical computer-aided design and analysis system for use in ill-structured design tasks. In addition to his work at PARC, he is an adjunct lecturer on the Engineering and Computer Science (Computer Science) faculty of the University of Santa Clara, and teaches special topics classes in Artificial Intelligence at Stanford University.

Dan publishes widely, with more than 100 articles and publications in his CV. He is a frequent subject of press interviews and has helped portray a great deal of complex technology to the non-technical world.

Dr. Russell received his B.S. in Information and Computer Science from U.C. Irvine, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the University of Rochester. While at Rochester, he did graduate work in the neuropsychology of laterality, models of apraxia and aphasia, coordinated motor movements and computer vision. Prior to PARC, Dr. Russell worked in the Xerox Webster Research Center gaining practical experience in printing systems and computer architecture.

CS Department Seminar: Suchi Saria (Johns Hopkins), Computational models for tracking illness severity in infants using EHRs

Babbio Center 221

Abstract:

Large amounts of data are routinely collected in the Electronic Medical Record yet their use in informing patient care is limited to manual assessment by the caregivers. In this talk, we discuss probabilistic latent variable models motivated by clinical practice for analyzing continuously measured physiologic data. We develop our models on data collected from instrumenting a neonatal intensive care unit. Based on insights derived from modeling this data, we tackle the application of risk stratification. As part of routine care, every infant at birth is risk stratified based on the Apgar score. We develop a cheap, non-invasive and simple risk stratification tool using markers from physiologic data for predicting infants at risk, dubbed by Science news as the modern electronic Apgar.

 

Bio:

Suchi Saria is an Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University within the Schools of Engineering and Public Health. She received her PhD in machine learning from Stanford University with Prof. Daphne Koller. Her research interests span computational modeling of diverse, large temporal data, and in particular those from sensing devices and the electronic health record for improving patient management. Her work on predictive modeling for clinical data from infants has been covered by numerous national and international press sources. She is the recipient of multiple awards including a best student, a best paper finalist, Microsoft Full Scholarships, an NSF Computing Innovation fellowship, a Google Research award and a Gordon and Betty Moore foundation award.

CS Department Distinguished Lecture: Manuela M. Veloso (Carnegie Melon University), Symbiotic Autonomous Mobile Service Robots

BC321

Abstract:

We envision ubiquitous autonomous mobile robots that coexist and interact with humans while performing tasks. Such robots are still far from common, as our environments offer great challenges to robust autonomous robot perception, cognition, and action. In this talk, I present symbiotic robot autonomy in which robots are robustly autonomous in their localization and navigation, as well as handle their limitations by proactively asking for help from humans, accessing the web for missing knowledge, and coordinating with other robots. Such symbiotic autonomy has enabled our CoBot robots to move in our multi-floor buildings performing a variety of service tasks, including escorting visitors, and transporting packages between locations. I will describe CoBot's fully autonomous effective mobile robot indoor localization and navigation algorithms, its human-centered task planning, and its symbiotic interaction with the humans, the web, and other robots, namely other CoBots and Baxter. I will further briefly present our research on multi-robot transfer planning, interruptible autonomy, and on task knowledge learning from our speech-based robot interaction with humans. The talk will be illustrated with results and examples from many hours-long runs of the robots in our buildings. The work is joint with Joydeep Biswas, Brian Coltin, Stephanie Rosenthal, Mehdi Samadi, Tom Kollar, Vittorio Perera, Robin Soetens, and Yichao Sun.

Bio:

Manuela M. Veloso is Herbert A. Simon Professor in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University, and Visiting Professor on sabbatical leave at CUSP, NYU. She researches in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. She founded and directs the CORAL research laboratory, for the study of multiagent systems where agents Collaborate, Observe, Reason, Act, and Learn, www.cs.cmu.edu/~coral. Professor Veloso is IEEE Fellow,  AAAS Fellow, and AAAI Fellow. She received the 2009 ACM/SIGART Autonomous Agents Research Award for her contributions to agents in uncertain and dynamic environments, including distributed robot localization and world modeling, strategy selection in multiagent systems in the presence of adversaries, and robot learning from demonstration. Professor Veloso and her students have worked with a variety of autonomous robots, for robot soccer, education, and service robots.

ECE seminar series: Improving Reliability of Modern Microprocessors

Babbio Center, Room 319

Improving Reliability of Modern Micro-processors

 

BY Dr. Naghmeh Karimi

Assistant Professor, ECE Department

Polytechnic School of Engineering at New York University

 

ABSTRACT

Reliability, trustworthiness, and performance of microprocessors have become major concerns regarding the deployment of microprocessors in a wide range of application domains. On the other hand, modern microprocessors exhibit a high degree of application-level error masking, which suppresses a significant percentage of errors and prevents them from interfering with correct program execution. Therefore, applying generic robustness solutions for microprocessors typically incurs prohibitive costs. This talk explores how the workload-cognizant analysis of the impact of various malfunctions in modern processors may effectively guide in identifying the most vulnerable functionality of the microprocessors and developing robustness solutions for them.

 

BIOGRAPHY

Naghmeh Karimi is a visiting Assistant Professor of the Polytechnic School of Engineering at New York University. She received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tehran in 2010. She was a visiting researcher at Yale University for two years during her Ph.D. program and a Post-doctoral researcher at Duke University after the completion of her Ph.D. program. Her research interests include design-for-testability and security, concurrent testing, fault tolerance, hardware security, and computer architecture.

Capital Constraints and the Performance of Entrepreneurial Firms in Vietnam

Babbio Center 430

Enrico Santarelli, Professor, Department of Economics, University of Bologna, Italy
 

ABSTRACT
Entrepreneurship has been among the key driving forces of the emergence of a dynamic private sector during the recent decades in Vietnam. This paper examines how capital constraints affect the performance of family firms, and how entrepreneurs' human and social capital interacts with capital constraints to leverage entrepreneurial income. A panel data of 1721 Vietnamese firms over four years is used. Results are consistent with the resource dependency approach, indicating an adverse effect of capital constraints on firm performance: firms suffering capital constraints perform substantially less well, suggesting that they need more capital to finance newly recognized profit opportunities. Human capital plays a vital role in relaxing capital constraints and improving the entrepreneurial firm performance, whereas the effect of social capital stemming from strong ties and weak ties is rather limited: strong ties bring emotional support and weak ties provide non-financial benefits from regular and useful business contacts. Advanced econometric tools are used to take into account the endogeneity of capital constraints.
