Tumor cell death induced by hypoxia or chemotherapy releases large amounts of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) into the extracellular environment. ATP is rapidly converted to AMP (adenosine monophosphate) which, in turn, is converted by hypoxia-induced CD73 into adenosine (ADO). ADO suppresses immune responses, including those of T cells, NK cells and dendritic cells through activation of adenosine... More >

I will describe two projects in which we characterize complex systems supercooled liquids and conjugated polymer aggregates through single molecule or single particle fluorescence imaging. First, in supercooled liquids systems that display behaviors consistent with the presence of heterogeneous dynamics we investigate the time scales over which heterogeneities persist using ideal single...

Experimental design in an oligonucleotide synthesis factory using numerical simulations in Python and pandas
Seminar | February 6 | 1:30-2:45 p.m. | 775A Tan Hall
Aaron Wiegel, Data Scientist, Synthego
Abstract: Regardless of the application, calculating a particular statistic and associated p-value is not necessarily the biggest challenge in designing an experiment, especially given the availability of open source software packages such as scipy and statsmodels in Python. Instead, ensuring that the assumptions required for a statistical test are actually satisfied by the data is far more... More >

Prof. Melinda Simon, San Jose State University, Biomedical Engineering
In 2012, the declining efficiency and increasing cost of pharmaceutical research was noted in a phenomenon termed Erooms law, to distinguish it from the efficiency of Moores law in transistor development.
Though the reasons for this phenomenon are myriad and varied, the efficiency of drug development and commercialization could be greatly improved by the development of better paradigms... More >

Polyphosphorus units are an important class of compound and isolobal to carbon-based relatives. Because of the lone pairs at the phosphorus atoms, the five-fold symmetric cyclo-P5 ring of the pentaphosphaferrocenes [CpRFe(η5-P5)] enables the use of these complexes in unique supramolecular aggregations with Lewis acidic transition metal moieties to form unprecedented giant spherical molecules...
