EPFL BioE DAY 2020
Annual research event of the EPFL's Institute of Bioengineering (IBI) -- this year on the topic "Physics of Living Systems".
NOTICE: online only (Zoom webinar), due to restrictions currently in force at EPFL, resulting from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
In a nutshell (see HERE for detailed schedules):
- Invited Talks by:
"Modulation of Neural Function with Electronic, Optical, and Magnetic Tools" (Keynote)
Anne-Florence Bitbol, Institute of Bioengineering, EPFL:
"Statistical Physics to Study Proteins and Microbial Evolution"
Dagmar Iber, ETH Zurich (CH):
"Physical Principles of Epithelial Morphogenesis" (Keynote)
- Short research talks by four ‘Jeffrey Hubbell and Melody Swartz Young Bioengineer Award’ finalists:
"Decoding Informational Polymer by Engineered Biological Nanopores"
Fabian Sesterhenn, Postdoc, Correia Lab:
"Toward a New Age of Precision Vaccines Through Computationally Designed Proteins"
Dora Mahečić, PhD student, Manley Lab:
"Super-Resolution Microscopy Across Biological Spatiotemporal Scales"
Mikhail Nikolaev, PhD student, Lutolf Lab:
"Tissue-Engineered Mini-Guts Establish a Homeostatic Organoid Culture System Resembling Native Intestinal Tissue"
- Annual Ceremony
Nods to various IBI faculty (in normal times, such nods would be toasts...)
And introducing this year: the annual 'IBI Lebowski/Lebowska Award'
- Sadly missing this year: posters, mingling & networking, beer & wine, food, live music...
Participation is free of charge, however registration is required through Zoom (no deadline).
