Stimulated Raman Scattering Microscopy: Seeing the Invisible in Biology and Medicine

Oct 24, 2018 3:30pm | Event
Biodesign Institute, Auditorium

Sunney Xie, PhD, Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Harvard University, Peking University  Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy is a label-free and noninvasive imaging technique using vibration spectroscopy as the contrast mechanism. Recent advances have allowed significant improvements in sensitivity, selectivity, robustness, and cost reduction, opening a wide range of applications. This is particularly relevant in biology since SRS microscopy does not affect cell...

Biodesign Institute, B310A

Rachel Levinson, Executive Director, National Research Initiative, Knowledge Enterprise Development, ASU Every sponsor has a process for developing research priorities and turning those into funding opportunities. What if you had the means to identify those priorities before funding opportunity announcements are published and use that intelligence to enhance your probability of funding success? Come to a discussion of best practices including looking upstream at future opportunities,...

Bringing to Light the Mechanism of Energy Conservation by Flavin-based Electron Bifurcation

Oct 25, 2018 4:00pm | Event
Biodesign Institute, Auditorium

Cara Lubner, PhD, Staff Scientist, Biophysical Chemist, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Golden CO An organism's ability to extract energy from its surroundings – and to do it better than its competitors – is a key requirement of survival. Until recently, it was thought that in all of biology, from microbes to humans, there were only two methods to generate and conserve the energy required for cellular metabolism and survival. In the last few years, flavin-based electron bifurcation...

Marston Exploration Theater

Samuel Sternberg, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, Columbia University Few discoveries transform a discipline overnight, but scientists today can manipulate cells in ways hardly imaginable before, thanks to a peculiar form of adaptive immunity mediated by Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR). From elegant studies that deciphered how these immune systems function in bacteria, researchers quickly uncovered the...
