Why Students Choose Chemical Engineering? A good video, it is much more than Unit Operations, Thermodynamics and Mass Transfer

A friendly reminder from your Pages team:
Transfer ownership before removing the owner account

It's Friday the 13th, so we want to work extra hard to ward off bad luck! We're so excited to see so many pages making the most of our multiple manager feature. But, say you want to remove a managing account from your page. First, check whether that account is the page's owner. If so, they'll need to transfer ownership of the page to another manager before their account is removed from the page. Otherwise, the page will be deleted instead of transferred automatically to another manager.

Take a minute, check it over, and save yourself from an unfortunate mistake!

Location: Herzstein Hall Room 210
Time: 2:30pm.

"Synthetic Signaling Systems for Biological Discovery and Design"

Cells utilize a plethora of signal transduction pathways to shape their responses to various environmental cues and much work has been done to dissect signaling networks in this native context in order to better understand how they contribute to cellular decision making. However, it can be difficult to study the inherent properties of a specific signaling module of interest due to the multitude of confounding interactions between the module and its native environment. To obviate these challenges, we have used computational and synthetic biology approaches to construct, analyze, and perturb signaling modules ex vivo. In this talk, I will highlight findings from our work on three such systems: information processing in a kinase cascade, ribosomal initiation of protein translation, and multi-feedback regulation of receptor signaling. In all three cases, we identify novel modes of regulation that underscore the inherent flexibility of these signaling modules and elucidate biological design rules that govern the operation of these modules in native and/or synthetic contexts.

About the Speaker: Casim Sarkar received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin (1997) and his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology(2002). After a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Zurich, Dr. Sarkar joined the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania in2006. His research interests lie in the area of molecular cell engineering, both for fundamental biological discovery and for translational design. Applications include understanding signal processing in cell decision-making, constructing synthetic circuits for rational cell engineering, and engineering biomolecules for various biomedical and biotechnological applications. Dr. Sarkar’s honors include a Fannie &John Hertz Foundation Graduate Fellowship, an NIH NRSA Postdoctoral Fellowship,and an NSF CAREER Award.
