Past Events

Lab Tour – Pun, Lutz, and Woodrow Labs

Date: Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Time1:30pm – 2:20pm

Description: At this event you will get to step inside three Bioengineering labs and interact with researchers in their working environments. To attend, RSVP here before Tuesday 10/24 at 11:59pm. Spots are limited, so we will be taking sign-ups on a first-come first-served basis. RSVP soon to secure your spot! The labs we will be visiting are:

The Pun Lab
The Pun Lab develops bioinspired materials to advance drug delivery and molecular imaging technologies. They are integrating techniques from engineering, chemistry, and cell biology to achieve this goal. They are actively working on projects in cancer therapy, central nervous system drug delivery, hemostatic materials, and kidney disease treatment.

The Lutz Lab
The Lutz Lab seeks to apply scientific understanding to develop point-of-care diagnostic technology for
global health applications. Their work is defined by manipulation of simple physical and biochemical phenomena to create devices for unmet clinical needs. Their work includes HIV drug resistance testing, microfluidic flow control, computational design of DNA sequences, and tuberculosis drug metabolite testing.

The Woodrow Lab
The Woodrow Lab is focused on the applications of engineered biomaterials in mucosal infections and mucosal immunity. They aim to design and build multifunctional materials that will lead to novel preventative strategies, program protective immune responses, and assist studies of mucosal infections and mucosal immunity in health and disease.

 

Undergraduate Presentation – David McIntyre

Date: Friday, November 3, 2017

Time5:00pm – 6:00pm

Location: Foege N130

Description:
At this event you will hear David McIntyre, a bioengineering senior, talk about his experience in BioE research in the Lutz Lab, internship at Transcriptic, and club leadership. He served as president of Engineers Without Borders, is currently a TA for BIOEN 326, and has been recognized for his accomplishments as a member of the Husky 100. David will talk through his experiences applying for labs, researching for internships, as well as how his experience at BioE has influenced his future plans.

Lab Tour – Baker, Gamble, and Seelig Lab Tour

Date: Thursday, February 8, 2018

Time: 1:30pm – 2:20pm

Location: MolES Main Entrance

Description:
Interested in research? Join us at BioExplore’s Lab Tour! At this event you will get to step inside three Bioengineering-related labs and interact with researchers in their working environments.

To attend, RSVP here before Tuesday 2/6 at 11:59pm. Spots are limited, so we will be taking sign-ups on a first-come first-served basis. RSVP soon to secure your spot! The labs we will be visiting are:

The Baker Lab
The Baker Lab is focused on the prediction and design of novel protein structures, functions, and interactions. Using ROSETTA, a computational prediction and design method, they create artificial proteins with useful functions, including catalysts for chemical reactions, HIV and RSV vaccine candidates, and flu virus inhibitors.

The Gamble Lab
The Gamble Lab’s work involves developing improved cellular imaging. They aim to improve sub-cellular images of cell and tissues to further understand and diagnose biological processes such as tumor microenvironments, lipid metabolomics relationship to cancer, and tissue repair.

The Seelig Lab
The Seelig Lab’s work involves synthetic biology and DNA nanotechnology. They aim to identify systematic design rules for the construction of biological control circuits with DNA and RNA components to be applied in disease diagnostics and therapy.
