"Molecular Aspects of Fibrin Fibers with Contributions to Elasticity and Strain Hardening"

Several researchers have begun to investigate the overall elasticity of fibrin fibers. In this talk, I will discuss a new mathematical and steered molecular dynamics (SMD) technique that can be used to model the mechanical behavior of fibrin fibers under applied stress, which help to elucidate mechanisms that govern elasticity and strain hardening behavior in the system.

"Tongue Drive: A Wireless Tongue-operated Assistive Technology for People with Severe Disabilities"

Tongue Drive System is a new unobtrusive, minimally invasive, wireless, wearable tongue-operated assistive technology that can enable people with severe physical disabilities such as quadriplegics access computers, drive powered wheelchairs and control their environment using volitional tongue motion. The system has been successfully developed, refined and evaluated by both able-bodies subjects and patients with high level spinal cord injuries.

The Graduate and Post-Doc (GaP) Seminar Series is a weekly event of research presentations by two graduate students or post-docs conducting bio-related research. The series is organized and sponsored by the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience (IBB) with additional support from the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering. 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.
