Demystifying Medicine: Seeing Biology and Physics in Space
Jointly sponsored by FAES and NIH, the Demystifying Medicine course aims to bridge exciting developments in medicine with advances in the basic biological and engineering sciences. When possible, a live patient introduces the course topic by discussing their disease, followed by a physician scientist who describes clinical aspects of the disease including therapy and challenges, followed by bench scientist who describes what we know and don't know regarding mechanism. The course is designed to excite as well as inform medical and Ph.D. students, fellows, basic and physician scientists, and program planners.For more informa...

Oh, snap! There's more to a finger snap than you ever knew.
Finger snapping is one of the fastest things the human body can do. Researchers studying the physics of finger snapping have learned that friction plays an intricately important role in the process. Such research could lead to the design of prosthetics that mimic the broad functionality of the ...This is an NSF Multimedia Gallery item. (Source: NSF Multimedia Gallery)

Biomedical Engineering Scientific Interest Group: Engineered Extracellular Matrix Models to Study Tumor Heterogeneity
Biomedical Engineering Scientific Interest Group Dr. Fischbach is the Stanley Bryer 1946 Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University, Director of Cornell's Physical Sciences Oncology Center on the Physics of Cancer Metabolism, and Associate Director of Cornell Nanoscale Science and Engineering Facility. Dr. Fischbach will review the compositional, microarchitectural, and mechanical hallmarks of the pro-tumorigenic extracellular matrix (ECM) and highlight biomaterials and engineering approaches to recapitulate these properties for in vitro and in vivo studies of cancer. She also will describe how such engineer...

Single-Molecule Studies of Homologous Recombination
Speaker Eric Greene uses single-molecule optical microscopy to study fundamental interactions between proteins and nucleic acids. " Our overall goal is to reveal the molecular mechanisms that cells use to repair, maintain, and decode their genetic information. This research combines aspects of biochemistry, physics, and nanoscale technology to answer questions about complex biological problems that cannot be easily addressed through traditional biochemical approaches. As part of our work, we have established robust experimental platforms that enable single molecule imaging of biochemical reaction mechanisms in a “ high t...

Elucidation and Pharmacological Targeting of Cellular Dependencies at the Single Cell Level
Speaker Andrea Califano, Ph.D, is a pioneer in the field of systems biology and founding chair of the Department of Systems Biology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. A physicist by training, Dr. Califano has taken innovative, systematic approaches to identify the molecular factors that lead to cancer progression and to the emergence of drug resistance at the single-cell level. Directing the conversation about cancer research away from focusing solely on gene mutations, Dr. Califano examines the complex and tumor-specific molecular interaction networks that determine cancer cell behavior. Using information theor...

Detailed UCLA-led analysis of a star ’ s orbit near supermassive black hole...
More than 100 years after Albert Einstein published his iconic general theory of relativity, it is beginning to fray at the edges, says Andrea Ghez, UCLA professor of physics and astronomy. Now, in the most comprehensive test of general relativity near the monstrous black hole at the center of our ...This is an NSF Multimedia Gallery item. (Source: NSF Multimedia Gallery)

Google Dataset Search: Facilitating data discovery in an open ecosystem.
There are thousands of data repositories on the Web, providing access to millions of datasets. National and regional governments, scientific publishers and consortia, commercial data providers, and others publish data for fields ranging from social science to life science to high-energy physics to climate science and more. Access to this data is critical to facilitating reproducibility of research results, enabling scientists to build on others ’ work, and providing data journalists easier access to information and its provenance. In this talk, I will discuss recently launched Google Dataset Search, which provides search...
