Prof. Oren Sherman “Overcoming the Blood-Brain Barrier: Post-resection drug delivery to Glioblastoma Multiforme using Supramolecular Hydrogels”

July 5 @ 2:30 pm
ISIS

Prof. Oren Sherman Melville Laboratory for Polymer Synthesis, Department of Chemistry, Cambridge University Oren graduated from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, with a BA in Chemistry in 1999. He completed a PhD in 2004 in olefin metathesis and controlled polymerisation, under the supervision of Professor Robert H. Grubbs at Caltech. After finishing his PhD, Oren moved to the Netherlands to work on supramolecular polymers with Professors E.W. Meijer and Rint P. Sijbesma at the Eindhoven University of Technology. In 2006,…

Prof. Giovanna Brusatin “Biomaterials and engineered microenvironments to control cell behavior”

July 5 @ 4:30 pm
ISIS

Prof. Giovanna Brusatin Department of Industrial Engineering, Università di Padova, Italy Abstract: Development of innovative cell culture systems are indispensable for advancing in basic biology and clinical translations.Breakthroughs have been discovered evidencing that signals that cells receive from the physicality of their microenvironment are absolutely essential for their survival and to direct their fate. These results go far beyond the limit of the classically preferred culture model, 2D cell monolayers cultured on adhesive rigid and flat plastic petri dish substrates.At…

Dr. Giulio RAGAZZON “The common origin of nonequilibrium motion and assembly”

September 20 @ 9:15 am
Salle de réunion

Dr. Giulio RAGAZZON Université de Trieste The common origin of nonequilibrium motion and assemblyGiulio RagazzonDepartment of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Trieste (Italy)gragazzon@units.itThe behaviour of matter at the nanoscale differs substantially from the one observedmacroscopically. This is mostly due to the relevance of thermal fluctuations, that govern thebehaviour of molecules. As a result, in artificial nanosystems it is particularly challenging to inducedirectional motion, as well as to assemble structures that would not form spontaneously. Thesethemes attracted the attention of…

Prof. Peter Hannaford “Talk on quantum time crystals”

September 23 @ 10:00 am
Salle de Séminaire

Peter Hannaford Creating Time Crystals with a Ultracold Atoms Centre for Quantum and Optical Science, Swinburne University, Melbourne, Australia Time crystals are an exotic form of quantum matter in which a periodically driven quantum many-body system spontaneously self-organizes its motion and repeats itself in time, rather than in space, with a period longer than the driving period, allowing the periodic structure to resist fluctuations and to persist for long periods of time. I will report on an experiment we are…

Prof. Kevin Kubarych “Exploring Vibrational Polariton Dynamics with Ultrafast Two-Dimensional Infrared Spectroscopy”

October 8 @ 2:30 pm
Salle de réunion

Prof. Kevin Kubarych University of Michigan, Ann Arbor Abstract Vibrational strong coupling (VSC) offers a new approach to manipulate reaction thermodynamics, vibrational energy flow, and intermolecular interactions. The complex energy relaxation, transfer, and dephasing processes in vibrational polaritons are ideally suited for study by ultrafast infrared spectroscopy, particularly two-dimensional infrared (2D-IR), which has become a major tool to unravel vibrational dynamics in general. This talk will introduce and review the key principles and molecular observables central to 2D-IR, while demonstrating…
