  • May 31: MolES Seminar: Pak Kin Wong, Penn State

    Tue May 31, 2016 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm | Tuesday, May 31, 2016, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. PDT A single cell nanobiosensor for probing collective cell migration Collective cell migration is a fundamental multicellular activity that plays essential roles in numerous physiological and pathological processes, such as angiogenesis, tissue regeneration, and cancer metastasis.  Proper coordination of cells, for instance, is required to repair damaged tissues in which cells crawl collectively atop exposed extracellular matrix following injury.  The collective migration mechanisms responsible for tissue development are also utilized in the invasion and metastasis of malignant tumors.  Despite its importance, the fundamental processes that drive collective cell migration, such as leader cell formation and biomechanical coupling, remain poorly understood.  To elucidate the collective migration process, my laboratory is developing molecular and nanoengineering techniques for single molecule imaging, dynamic gene expression analysis, single cell photothermal ablation, biomechanical analysis of cell-cell and cell-matrix interaction, and agent-based computational modeling.  In this talk, I will discuss the application of a single cell nanobiosensor for probing the mechanoregulation of collective cell migration.  The biosensor incorporates nanoparticles and fluorophore-labeled locked nucleic acid probes for mapping the spatiotemporal gene expression dynamics in native tissue microenvironments at the single cell level.  Using the nanobiosensor, we demonstrate that the formation of leader cells during collective migration is dynamically regulated by Dll4 signaling through both Notch1 and mechanical force.  Our finding provides a molecular basis for the stochastic emergence of leader cells, which may enable novel approaches in regenerative medicine, diabetic wound healing and cancer treatment.  Bio Pak Kin Wong is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Surgery at the Pennsylvania State University.  Prior to Penn State, Dr. Wong was an Associate Professor in the Departments of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering and a member of the Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center at the University of Arizona.  He received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2005.  He is an editor of Scientific Reports, IEEE Transaction on Nanotechnology IEEE Nanotechnology Magazine, and Journal of Laboratory Automation.  He serves in organizing committees of numerous international conferences, including program chair of IEEE NANOMED 2012 and general co-chair of IEEE NEMS 2013.  His current research interest focuses on collective cell migration and molecular diagnostics.  He has published over 80 peer-reviewed journal articles in the area of nanotechnology and biomedical engineering, and is an inventor of two patents.  Among other honors, Dr. Wong was awarded the NIH Director's New Innovator Award in 2010, Arizona Engineering Faculty Fellow in 2011, AAFSAA outstanding Faculty Award in 2013, and JALA 10 – A Top 10 Breakthrough in Innovation in 2015. Molecular Engineering and Sciences Seminar Series This weekly seminar brings together students, faculty and invited guests from various disciplines across campus to explore current trends in molecular engineering and nanotechnology.

  • Jun 6: CSNE/Kavli Seminar: Reverse engineering spinal circuitry

    Mon Jun 6, 2016 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm | Monday, Jun 6, 2016, 1 - 2 p.m. PDT ABSTRACT: The objective of this work is to build a neuromorphic robotic system that can interact with the physical world by implementing neuromechanical principles. It is a faithful implementation of the spinal circuitry responsible for the afferentation of muscles and is capable of producing both normal and pathological functions. We used state-of-the-art models of muscle spindle mechanoreceptors with fusimotor drive, monosynaptic circuitry of the stretch reflex, and alpha motoneuron recruitment and rate coding. This multi-scale, hybrid system driven by populations of 1024 spiking neurons, emulated the physiological characteristics of the afferented mammalian muscles. We implemented these models on field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) which are capable of running these complex computations in real-time. The FPGAs control the forces of two muscles acting on a joint via long tendons. We performed ramp-and-hold perturbations and systematically explored a range of muscle spindle gains (fusimotor drive) to characterize the stretch reflex response in different phases of the perturbation. Finally, we explored the fidelity of four models for isometric muscle force production by testing their responses to rate-coding using spike trains and produced force ramps. This autonomous integrated system was self-stable and the closed- loop behavior of populations of muscle spindles, alpha and gamma motoneurones, and muscle fibers emulated muscle tone and function. Sweeping the range of muscle spindle gains provided us with a subset of values that produced tenable physiological and pathological responses. Moreover, isometric force generation revealed that the dynamic response in the tendons is very sensitive to tendon elasticity, especially at high firing rates. This hybrid, neuromorphic, neuromechanical system is a precursor to neuromorphic robotic systems. It provides a platform to study healthy function and the potential spinal and/or supraspinal sources of pathologic behavior.

The conference, scheduled for July 23-25, 2016, will be located at Seattle University in the Capital Hill neighborhood of Seattle.OpenStreetMap ( www.openstreetmap.org) (OSM), the Wikipedia of maps, is being created by more than 100,000 volunteers worldwide, who use the organization’s software tools to add a wide range of data to the global map. It is free to join OpenStreetMap, and the organization’s data is free for any application.OSM is a proponent of open-source geodata and software in order to make sophisticated mapping available to anyone worldwide.State of the Map US conferences bring together OpenStreetMap creators and users, including participants from government, business, education and nonprofit organizations. A number of participants come from overseas organizations that are using OpenStreetMap in disaster recovery, transportation improvement, medical services and community economic development.The theme for the 2016 meeting is “Building Community” with a focus on expending the diversity of OpenStreetMap contributors and users. The conference organizers plan special outreach to women and minority communities that have not participated widely in making or using OpenStreetMap, with sessions about how to participate in creating OSM and how to take advantage of the mapping data it provides.Other sessions will deal with technical topics in mapping, unique applications of OpenStreetMap data and OSM in education.

The Alaska Airlines Environmental Innovation Challenge at the University of Washington taps into the passion, smarts, and motivation that university students have for solving environmental/cleantech problems. In the Alaska Airlines Environmental Innovation Challenge, interdisciplinary student teams define an environmental problem, develop a solution, design and build a prototype, create a business plan that proves their solution has market potential, and pitch to 250+ judges at a demo-day event. This event is not open to the public.  If you are interested in attending, contact Pam Tufts, ptufts@uw.edu. Event types: Special Events Facebook: www.facebook.com… More info: foster.uw.edu…
