Proteoforms in human health and disease

Seminar | February 20 | 12-1 p.m. | 106 Stanley Hall

 Neil Kelleher, Northwestern University

 Bioengineering (BioE)

Proteoforms are the specific molecular forms of proteins arising from human genes encoded in the human genome. They include all sources of protein variation, and here’s a list: sequence mutations, alternative splicing, and post-translational modifications (PTMs). They underlie diverse biological systems and proteoform diversity is directly linked to functions, pathway modulation, and disease...   More >

Electrokinetic Control of Interfacial Instabilities

Colloquium: Chem. & Biomol. Engineering Colloquium | February 20 | 4-6 p.m. | 180 Tan Hall

 Martin Bazant, Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

 Department of Chemical Engineering

This talk will describe three examples of interfacial patterns – viscous fingers, deionization shocks, and metal dendrites – whose stability can be controlled by electrokinetic phenomena in charged porous media, as evidenced by both theory and experiments. Potential applications include electrically enhanced oil recovery, water desalination and purification by shock electrodialysis, and energy...   More >
