Oct. 7, 2011, 12 p.m. - Micro encapsulation in consumer products-the opportunities, the challenges and recent developments (David York)

Micro encapsulation is an excellent example of how a carefully structured particle can bring added value and the development of this technology is moving fast. This is mainly due to improvements in characterisation tools, (which help us understand what has been made versus what was meant to be made), improved ...

Oct. 14, 2011, 12 p.m. - The guidance of cellular crowds (Xavier Trepat)

For a monolayer sheet to migrate cohesively, it has long been suspected that each constituent cell must exert physical forces not only upon its extracellular matrix but also upon neighboring cells. I will present the first comprehensive maps of these distinct force components. These maps reveal an unexpectedly rich physical ...

Oct. 26, 2011, 12 p.m. - System-level approaches to healthcare (Luís A. N. Amaral)

System-level approaches have been a significant component of engineering for many decades. The marked aging of the populations in the developed world is posing enormous demands on the healthcare system, demanding novel approaches. Engineers are ideally placed to address several of the challenges we are facing. In my talk, I ...

Oct. 28, 2011, 12 p.m. - Optical control of neurosecretion (Pau Gorostiza)

Neurons signal to each other and to non-neuronal cells as those in muscle or glands, by means of the secretion of neurotransmitters at chemical synapses. In order to dissect the molecular mechanisms of neurotransmission, new methods for directly and reversibly triggering neurosecretion at the presynaptic terminal are necessary. Here we ...
