Davis Projects for Peace $10K campus-wide award application deadline: 10k Grant Award Opportunity for Undergrads

Deadline | January 21 |  International House

International House

Projects for Peace is an initiative open to UC Berkeley undergrads to design grassroots projects for the summer of 2019 - anywhere in the world - which promote peace and address the root causes of conflict among parties.

We encourage applicants to use their creativity to design projects and employ innovative techniques for engaging project participants in ways that focus on conflict......   More >

Programming gene circuits with genome and transcriptome engineering to combat disease

Seminar | January 22 | 10-11 a.m. | 290 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

Patrick Hsu, Salk Institute for Biological Studies

Bioengineering (BioE)

Rapid advances in genome profiling and analysis have illuminated many genomic changes related to human disease. The ability to interrogate the functional roles of such variants in pathogenesis and their potential as therapeutic targets is critical for the development of new medicines. CRISPR tools that systematically reverse-engineer cellular processes through rapid and precise perturbations......   More >

Peter Zhang - Dynamic optimization on networks: designing biodefense supply chain

Seminar | January 22 | 3:30-5 p.m. | 306 Soda Hall

Peter Zhang, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Industrial Engineering & Operations Research

Abstract: Bioattacks, i.e., the intentional release of pathogens or biotoxins against humans to cause serious illness and death, pose a significant threat to public health and safety due to the availability of pathogens worldwide, scale of impact, and short treatment time window. I model the defender’s static antibiotic inventory prepositioning decision and dispensing capacity installation......   More >

The Promise of Smart Materials in Earthquake Resistant Design

Lecture | January 23 | 5-6:30 p.m. | 502 Davis Hall

Reginald DesRoches, William and Stephanie Sick Dean of Engineering, Rice University

UC Berkeley EERI Student Chapter

Damage from recent earthquakes underscores the importance of developing new approaches and technologies to improve the performance of structures during earthquakes. The presentation will highlight applications of one class of smart materials — shape memory alloys — in improving the performance of structures subjected to earthquake loading....   More >

Optics-free spatio-genetic imaging with DNA microscopy

Seminar | January 24 | 10-11 a.m. | 290 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

Joshua Weinstein, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard

Bioengineering (BioE)

Complex cell populations, from the brain to the
adaptive immune system, rely on diverse gene variants, somatic
mutations, and expression patterns for some of their most essential
functions. This genetic heterogeneity not only endows intrinsic
properties to individual cells, but it also often operates at the
level of inter-cellular interactions. Technologies that jointly
resolve both gene......   More >

Plate Mechanical Metamaterials and Their Applications: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | January 25 | 2-3 p.m. | 4 LeConte Hall

Prof. Igor Bargatin, Univ. of Pennsylvania, Mechanical Engineering

Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

Recently, we introduced the concept of plate mechanical metamaterials—cellular plates with carefully controlled periodic geometry and unique mechanical properties—as well as its initial realization in the form of freestanding corrugated plates made out of an ultrathin film.

We used atomic layer deposition (ALD) and microfabrication techniques to make robust plates out of a single continuous......   More >

Arista Info-Session
