Upcoming Calendar Events

  • Dec 1: MolES Seminar: Scott Phillips, Penn State

    Mon Dec 1, 2014 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm | Monday, Dec. 1, 2014, 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. PST Polymeric Materials with Amplified Responses to Specific Applied Signals This presentation will describe strategies for creating functional polymeric materials that provide amplified responses to specific stimuli. One approach employs end-capped polymers that depolymerize completely from head-to-tail when the end-cap is removed from the polymer in response to a stimulus. Demonstrated applications of these polymers include shape-shifting materials, plastics that are easily recycled, self-powered pumps, point-of-care diagnostics, as well as controlled release chemistry.       Bio: Scott Phillips is the Martarano Associate Professor of Chemistry at the Pennsylvania State University.  He earned his Ph.D. from Paul A. Bartlett at UC Berkeley in 2004 and trained as a postdoctoral fellow in George Whitesides’ group (Harvard).  He started his independent career at Penn State in 2008.  His research interests include: (i) developing thermally stable detection and signal amplification reagents for use in point-of-care diagnostics; (ii) developing exceedingly inexpensive but high performance diagnostic devices for use in resource poor environments; and (iii) designing new classes of stimuli-responsive plastics that display amplified and autonomous responses for biomedical and environmental applications. He has been recognized for his achievements by the Beckman Foundation, the Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation, DARPA (Young Faculty Award), 3M, NSF (CAREER), Popular Mechanics, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Eli Lilly, Thieme Chemistry, and others.        Campus location: Johnson Hall (JHN) Campus room: 102 Event sponsors: The weekly seminar series organized by Molecular Engineering and Sciences Institute provides a forum for bringing national and international leaders in nanoscale science and technology to campus, and for graduate students enrolled in our Dual Ph.D. program in Nanotechnology to present their research.

  • Jan 13: MolES Seminar: Bruce Hinds, University of Washington

    Tue Jan 13, 2015 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm | Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2015, 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. PST Dramatic nano-fluidic properties of carbon nanotube membranes as a platform for protein channel mimetic pumps Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have three key attributes that make them of great interest for novel membrane applications 1) atomically flat graphite surface allows for ideal fluid slip boundary conditions for 10,000 fold faster fluid flow 2) the cutting process to open CNTs inherently places functional chemistry at CNT core entrance for gatekeeper activity and 3) CNT are electrically conductive allowing for electrochemical reactions and application of electric fields gradients at CNT tips. Pressure driven flux of a variety of solvents (H2O, hexane, decane ethanol, methanol) are 4-5 orders of magnitude higher than conventional Newtonian flow [Nature 2005, 438, 44] due to atomically flat graphite planes inducing nearly ideal slip conditions. However this is eliminated with selective chemical functionalization [ACS Nano 2011 5 3867-3877] needed to give chemical selectivity. These unique properties allow us to explore the hypothesis of producing ‘Gatekeeper’ membranes that mimic natural protein channels. With anionic tip functionality strong electroosmotic flow is induced by unimpeded cation flow with similar 10,000 fold enhancements [Nature Nano 2012 7 133-39]. With enhanced power efficiency, carbon nanotube membranes were employed as the active element of a switchable transdermal drug delivery device that can facilitate more effective treatments of drug abuse and addiction[PNAS . 2010 107 11698]. Recently methods to deposit Pt monolayers on CNT surface have been developed making for highly efficient catalytic platforms with controlled flow of substrates. Discussed are other applications of CNT protein channel mimetics using actuated ‘gatekeepers’, for large area robust engineering platforms, including photocatalytic water purification, flow battery energy storage, and biochemical/biomass separations. Bio: Professor Bruce Hinds has a formal and research-based background in chemistry and electronic device processing. Bachelor studies were in Chemistry at Harvey Mudd College in California (1991). His Ph.D. work (1996) was on the MOCVD growth of high temperature superconductors at Northwestern University (Tobin Marks, NAE, NAS). He went on to post-doctoral research at NC State Physics to study the interface states in the Si/SiO2 system (Gerry Lucovsky). He then received an NSF-JSPS fellowship to work with nano-scale fabrication of single electron floating gate memory at the Tokyo Institute of Technology (Shunri Oda). In 2001 he joined the faculty of the University of Kentucky to start a research program for functional materials at the nm-scale. In particular, his research group is trying to produce nano-scale materials that can mimic natural process for applications ranging from health care, energy storage/generation and water purification. In July 2014 he moved to University of Washington MSE department. He has authored almost 70 papers (including Science, Nature, PNAS, Nat. Nanotech), has recently received a Presidential Early Career Award (PECASE) award sponsored by NIH, Kavli frontiers fellow and is the Campbell Professor of Materials Science & Engineering.

We explore in this presentation how a thermal-dominated electric energy system can be transformed into a renewable-dominated one. This study relies on a stochastic programming model that allows representing the uncertain parameters plaguing such long-term planning exercise. Being the final year of our analysis 2050, we represent the transition from today to 2050 by allowing investment in both production and transmission facilities, with the target of achieving a renewable-dominated minimum-cost system. The methodology developed is illustrated using a realistic large-scale case study. Finally, policy conclusions are drawn. Bio: Antonio Conejo, a professor at the Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, Spain, joined The Ohio State University’s departments of ISE and ECE in January 2014. His areas of expertise are electric energy systems and the mathematical tools for decision-making in energy systems.

  • Feb 24: MolES/Nano Seminar: Sam Lai, UNC Chapel Hill Molecular Pharmaceutics

    Tue Feb 24, 2015 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm | Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2015, 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. PST Elucidating the biophysical and molecular interactions of pathogens and polymers with the immune system This presentation will explore our lab’s recent progress in elucidating (i) a novel and exceptionally potent mechanism of mucosal immunity based on transient antibody-mucin interactions, and (ii) the interactions between PEGylated nanoparticles and immune cells. More antibodies are secreted into mucus than either the blood or the lymph, yet the mechanisms by which antibodies can protect against pathogens in mucus are not fully understood. Using high resolution fluorescence microscopy, we reveal that the array of pathogen-bound antibodies can trap individual pathogens in the mucin matrix at subneutralizing antibody concentrations through N-glycans on the Fc-domain. The carefully tuned antibody-mucin affinity transforms the mucus gel into an effective adhesive barrier against a diverse array of viral and bacterial pathogens in vitro and in vivo. We are developing computational models to further reveal the dynamics of this ‘molecular shield’. Separately, we are exploring how the physicochemical properties of polymeric coatings on nanoparticles may Influence their interactions with immune cells and antibodies. Using nanoparticles with precisely tunable polymer grafting, we show that evading immune cell uptake and clearance in mice requires PEG grafting at densities substantially exceeding the minimum for polymer brush conformation.
