Microengineering Approaches for Tissue Engineering and Developmental Biology
Published: September 20, 2017

Abstract: Early stages of human neural development include neural induction, shaping, folding, and closure of neural tubes. Current understanding of early neural development relies on animal studies. However, insights in human neural development mechanism are very limited, largely due to the inaccessibility of human embryo, lack of in vitro models, and ethical concerns. In this […]

Atomistic Modeling at Experimental Strain Rates and Time Scales
Published: September 13, 2017

Abstract: I will present a new computational approach that couples a recently  developed potential energy surface exploration technique with applied mechanical loading to study the deformation of atomistic systems at strain rates that are much slower, i.e. experimentally-relevant, as compared to classical molecular dynamics simulations, and at time scales on the order of seconds or […]

Mechanics of Blood Clots and Fluctuating Lipid Bilayers
Published: August 31, 2017

Abstract: Blood clots are required to stem bleeding and are subject to a variety of stresses, but they can also block blood vessels and cause heart attacks and strokes. We measured the compressive response of human platelet-poor plasma (PPP) clots, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) clots and whole blood clots and correlated these measurements with confocal and […]
