The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the John P. Oliver Nano@Wayne Seminar on Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 2:30 p.m. at the Welcome Center Auditorium.   The presenter for this seminar will be Dr. Gang-yu Liu, Professor of Chemistry at the University of California, Sacramento.

The title of the seminar will be:  "Engineered Nanostructures for Investigation and Regulation of Cellular Signaling Processes".  New and advanced methodologies, such as nanolithography, high resolution cellular imaging and mechancial property measurements, have been developed to investigate cancer cellular signaling processes that are otherwise difficult to probe.  This presentation will focus on the principle regarding the unique and advantageous aspects of these nanotechnology approaches in the context of revealing new insights into surface biochemistry.  Secondly, how the nanostructures produced enable systematic investigations of surface bound ligand-cell interactions.  Thirdly, the impact of engineered nanostructure on the cellular signaling processes will be discussed.

A small reception will immediately be held (3:30-4:00 p.m.) in the Welcome Center Lobby.

This Nano@Wayne Seminar is jointly sponsored by the OVPR and Nano Multi-Disciplinary Incubator

Please note:  Parking is available in Parking Structure #6, Visitors Gate (on Putnam between Cass and Woodward) in the visitors' section.   Bring your parking ticket to the seminar registration desk in the Welcome Center to be validated.
