Physico-Chemical Approaches to Understanding and Developing Cancer Immunotherapies: Nano Seminar Series
Seminar | September 29 | 2-3 p.m. | 180 Tan Hall | Note change in location
Prof. James R. Heath, Cal Tech, Chemistry
At the heart of most cancer immunotherapies are specific molecular interactions between the principle cancer cell killers, T cells, and the tumor-associated peptide antigens that are presented within the tumor environment.
I will discuss 2 separate projects relevant to understanding and harnessing these interactions. The first is a microchip/nanotech based single cell tool that is used for... More >
Seminar: Inorganic Chemistry | September 29 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
The interconversion of electrical and chemical energy requires the coupling of electron transfer with substrate bond rearrangement. This can be achieved via inner-sphere electron transfer at the surface exposed active sites of metallic heterogeneous electrocatalysts or via outer-sphere redox mediation facilitated by a homogeneous molecular electrocatalysts. Molecular electrocatalysts yield... More >
