Gap Seminar Series

Presenters:

Melissa Li - Advisor, Craig Forest

"Development of Microscale System for Characterization of Shear-induced Thrombosis"

Fluid shear is a well-known cause for platelet induced thrombosis, a leading cause of strokes and heart attacks.  In order to characterize this behavior, we are developing a novel in-vitro system towards the compact, scalable formation and characterization of platelet aggregates.

 

Keon-Young Park - Advisor, Manu Platt

"Quantitative Analysis of Patient Variability in Macrophage and Osteoclast Differentiation"

Monocytes differentiate into macrophages and osteoclasts, cells that produce powerful cysteine protease enzyme cathepsins implicated in a number of healthy and pathological remodeling of tissues. In order to use  monocytes for cell-based therapy, we need to understand and direct their differentiation process. Here we present a systems biology approach to elucidate the complex processes of monocyte differentiation and predict cell fate.

 

 

The Graduate and Post-Doc (GaP) Seminar Series is a weekly event of biotechnology related research presentations by two graduate students or post-docs of IBB and is co-sponsored by BME. It is held every Wednesday at 12:00pm in IBB 1128 and refreshments are provided. If your research group or department would like to present at future seminars, please contact Manu Platt, PhD at manu.platt@bme.gatech.edu.
