Neuronal Oscillations and Temporal Odor Coding

Abstract : Odor information is represented by both intensity and timing of neuronal activity in the olfactory bulb, but origins and roles of the temporal pattern remain enigmatic. Here we addressed this issues using two-photon calcium imaging of the mouse […]

An Integrative Proteogenomics Approach in Gastric Cancer

Abstract : Agreement between genomic and proteomic molecular signatures can be used to identify core disease-related signatures. Recently, proteogenomics analyzing proteomic and genomic data for the same biological samples has emerged to identify these core molecular signatures related to diseases. […]

From Odin to DARwIn: Robot Evolution by Intelligent Design

Abstract :  Most mobile robots we see today utilize wheels or treads to move around. But why don’t we see such locomotion mechanisms in nature? Or a better question we should ask is: why don’t we use locomotion mechanisms used […]

Bio-inspired Material-independent Surface Chemistry

Abstract : This presentation will discuss the emerging surface chemistry utilizing catechol and catecholamine. The catechol/catecholamine compounds have exhibited material-independent surface modification [1]. Utilizing this unprecedented property, we have developed various material-independent surface functionalization strategies such as hydroxyapatite formation [2], […]
