Spring 2024 - Thrust Meetings

January 15, 2024 - 8:00am

Thrust 1, 2, and 3 Meetings set for Spring 2024.
More details -

Thrust 1: Protein Metamorphosis and Responsive Nanodevices.
Phase II research focuses on the emerging theme of protein metamorphosis as mechanism to enable natural and synthetic controllable biological nanodevices, organized in two broad areas: the functional roles of gradually morphing proteins; and engineering of control systems of the assembly-disassembly of biological macromolecular assemblies.

Thrust 2: Adaptive and Responsive Mesoscale Assemblies.
In Phase II, the focus is to understand the mechanisms that enable assemblies to function collectively in adaptive and responsive ways as well as exploiting them for applications. 

Thrust 3: Adaptive Cellular Communication.
Phase II will examine the impact of cell-cell and cell-matrix mechanical interactions on collective cell motility, patterning and the emergence of function, combining experimental and modeling approaches.
