"Chondroitin Sulfate Materials for Regeneration of the Ligament-bone Insertion"

The goal of this work is to examine cell and growth factor interactions with the cartilaginous glycosaminoglycan (GAG), chondroitin sulfate.  Chondroitin sulfate-modified materials were developed to investigate the effects of these sulfated GAGs on differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) toward a fibrocartilaginous phenotype.

"Real-time Closed-loop Techniques for Single Neuron Experiments"

The "dynamic clamp" is an increasingly popular real-time technique in neural electrophysiology that allows researchers to create virtual environments around single neurons by introducing artificial biological mechanisms or mimicking different experimental conditions. I will present examples of how this technique has led to new insights in neuroscience and introduce a software platform that we are developing for real-time closed-loop biological experiments.


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
