Upcoming events:

  • Engineering Polymeric Materials to Study Cancer Dynamics

    September 30, 2022, 2–3 p.m.

    180 Tan Hall

    Prof. Sarah Heilshorn, Stanford University, MSE & BioE & ChemE

    Cell-induced matrix remodeling is a hallmark of both disease and regeneration. My lab develops biomaterials and matrix characterization methods to study these dynamic cell-matrix interactions. In designing our biomaterials, we employ protein engineering methods with simple polymer physics models to create biomimetic extracellular matrices for culture of patient-derived organoids. These...

  • Non-Traditional Paths to Grad School Q&A Panel - Workshop 2

    October 3, 2022, 5–6 p.m.

    In Person (Location: TBD)

    Graduate Student, STEM (TBD)
    Graduate Student, Social Science (TBD)

    To have an open conversation about taking a gap year(s) before entering grad school. We aim to create a space where students may interact with current graduate students and ask them questions about their post-undergraduate journeys. This will hopefully ease anxieties and remove the stigmas surrounding taking time off before going into grad school.

  • CCB Seminar: Dr. Latifa Jackson, Howard University: Using Multi-Omics Computational Approaches to Understand Human Health: Navigating data to make real inference

    October 4, 2022, 2–3 p.m.

    125 Li Ka Shing Center

    Dr. Latifa Jackson, Howard University

    Zoom link: Abstract: Increasingly, computational scale data is being leveraged to gain insights into a host of human health issues. From environmental stressors to ancestry analyses, computational biology is becoming increasingly integral to our desire to gain insights into human biology. In this talk I would like to highlight several of the key ways that...

  • Tele-operated Social Robots: Designing for an Inclusive Future

    October 5, 2022, 12–1 p.m.


    Veronica Ahumada, Assistant Professor, Director of the Technology and Social Connectedess (TASC) Lab, UC Davis Health/Pediatrics/Center for Health and Technology

    Verónica Ahumada is an assistant professor of health informatics and human-robot interaction in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of California, Davis. She directs the Technology and Social Connectedness (TASC) Lab in UC Davis Health’s Center for Health and Technology. Her work is focused on the use of assistive social robots and interactive technologies to improve health and...
