DISTINGUISHED LECTURE IN BIOLOGICAL ENGINEERING (sandwiches served) Abstract: From viruses to tissue matrices, biology is filled with remarkable polymeric structures that motivate mimicry with goals of both clarifying and exploiting biological principles. Filamentous viruses inspired our development and computations of worm-like, flexible polymer micelles – ‘filomicelles’ – that reveal non-spherical nano-therapeutics can persist in the ...

Droplet microfluidics, in which micro-droplets serve as individual reactors, has enabled a range of high-throughput biochemical processes. Although the physics of single drops has been studied extensively, the flow of crowded drops or concentrated emulsions—where droplet volume fraction exceeds ~80%—is relatively unexplored in microfluidics. Ability to leverage concentrated emulsions is critical for further increasing the ... Read more about "Order and CHAOS*: collective behavior of crowded drops in microfluidic systems"

Abstract: MEMS mirror have been developed since the early 90’s, originally for telecom-switching application, but also in parallel for scanning-based laser projection systems with the great benefit of providing a projected image with very large color gamut, always-in-focus, ultra-small and low power. Lemoptix, a spin-off from the EPFL Micro-Systems laboratory was one of the pioneer ... Read more about "Laser-MEMS scanning mirror for ultra-miniature video projection"

The draft tube of a hydraulic turbine is the turbine element located downstream of the runner. It has a divergent shape in order to convert the residual kinetic energy leaving the runner into pressure and thus increase the specific energy transfer to the runner. The performances of low head bulb turbines are highly influenced by ... Read more about "Analysis of head losses in a bulb turbine draft tube by means of unsteady numerical simulations"
