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

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

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 >

Graphite-Conjugated Catalysis

Seminar: Inorganic Chemistry | September 29 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall

 Prof. Yogesh Surendranath, Department of Chemistry, MIT

 College of Chemistry

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 >
