Biophysics Seminar Series: Jaume Casademunt, University of Barcelona: Hydrodynamics of epithelia: waves, wetting, and fingering| PCTS Seminar room, Jadwin 407

Fri, Jun 14, 2019, 12:30 am

Collective migration of cohesive groups of cells is a hallmark of the tissue remodeling events that underlie embryonic morphogenesis, wound repair and cancer invasion. In this collective migration, supra-cellular properties such as collective polarization or force generation emerge and eventually control large- scale...

Biophysics Seminar: Markus Meister, California Institute of Technology| "Large Ratios in Brain Science "| Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Apr 15, 2019, 12:00 pm

In physics and engineering dimensionless numbers frequently help to characterize the state of a system. I will present a series of vignettes about unusually large dimensionless numbers that arise in brain science. These can indicate issues that are poorly understood, and in some cases clearly misunderstood.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

Biophysics Seminar: Massimo Vergassola, University of California San Diego| "Waves and flows in the early embryogenesis of Drosophila melanogaster"| Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Apr 8, 2019, 12:00 pm

Early embryogenesis of most metazoans is characterized by rapid and synchronous cleavage divisions. After fertilization, Drosophila embryos undergo 13 swift rounds of DNA replication and mitosis without cytokinesis, resulting in a multinucleated syncytium containing about 6,000 nuclei.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

Biophysics Seminar: Elizabeth Hillman, Columbia University| "High-speed imaging of real-time brain activity"| Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Apr 1, 2019, 12:00 pm

Optical reporters of neural activity have improved dramatically over the past decade. Recent developments in optical imaging approaches have unlocked the power of these indicators and can now provide real-time read-outs from large populations of brain cells in a wide range of living organisms.

Biophysics Seminar: Benny Chain, University College London| "The T cell receptor repertoire in health and disease"| Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Mar 25, 2019, 12:00 pm

The human adaptive immune system makes robust decisions which regulate quantitative and qualitative parameters of a complex physiological system, to prevent invasion and destruction of tissues by the enormous array of microorganisms which share our environment.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

Biophysics Seminar: Jose Onuchic, Rice University| "The three-dimensional architecture of the human genome: understanding the physical mechanisms controlling gene expression"| Joseph Henry Room

Mon, Mar 11, 2019, 12:00 pm

In vivo, the human genome folds into a characteristic ensemble of 3D structures. The mechanism driving the folding process remains unknown. A theoretical model for chromatin (minimal chromatin model) that explains the folding of interphase chromosomes and generates chromosome conformations consistent with experimental data will be presented.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.
