Colloquium Series: Establishing defect-property relationship for low dimensional materials (Dr. Assel Aitkaliyeva, University of Florida)

November 2, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us on Zoom for our Colloquium Series. Dr. Assel Aitkaliyeva from the University of Florida will be joining us to present "Establishing defect-property relationship for low dimensional materials." Abstract: The radiation response of two-dimensional (2D) dimensional materials deviates dramatically from bulk materials with three-dimensional (3D) bonding networks. In bulk solids, energy deposited by the energetic particles can dissipate in all three-dimensions, unlike in their low dimensional counterparts. The less efficient energy dissipation mechanism in 2D materials can lead to…

Colloquium Series: Living Responsive Matter: Combining Morphodynamics and Force Measurements for Understanding Cell Mechanobiology (Dr. Rich Superfine, APS Chair, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)

November 9, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us on Zoom for our Colloquium Series. Dr. Rich Superfine, APS Chair from the University of North Carolina will be joining us to present "Living Responsive Matter: Combining Morphodynamics and Force Measurements for Understanding Cell Mechanobiology" Abstract: Cells are the essence of soft matter – active, responsive, shape changing matter. In particular, the mechanical component of biology, from single molecules to cells to tissues, has been demonstrated to control the identity, movement and fate of cells. To understand the…

Qishun Tang – PhD Defense: Structure and rheological properties of airway mucus

November 12, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Join us on Zoom for Qishun Tang's PhD Defense. Qishun Tang will be presenting "Structure and rheological properties of airway mucus." Abstract: Mucus is a human secretion in the linings of the respiratory, digestive, and urogenital systems and serves to protect epithelial cells as the first–line protection and provide lubrication. In the respiratory system, mucus protects epithelial cells by trapping the inhaled pathological particles and the mucus is propelled by the beating cilia underneath the mucus layer (mucociliary clearance) or…
