BIOENGINEERING SEMINAR Abstract: The key influence of the microenvironment on cell behavior and fate is increasingly recognized. It follows that new techniques to control the 3D environment around cells are essential to understand the processes by which cells probe and respond to the cues received by their microniches. Here, we present an approach that allows ... Read more about "From Microdishes to Microniches: 3D Micro-Environmental Control around Single Cells.

What do active ceramics and soft structures have in common? Two seemingly distinct systems serve to illustrate the power of structural transformations, and the challenges involved in modeling those across scales. Ferroelectric ceramics are key to most sensor and actuator technologies, owing to their electro-mechanical coupling: they deform under applied electric fields, and they produce ...

Lattice point defects and their coupling with electronic defects dominate the overall electrical properties of electroceramic materials, and thus great effort is expended on controlling the defect equilibria via oxygen activity during processing and/or doping. In device applications, because the lattice defects are typically charged, the applied voltage provides a strong driving force for defect ...
