Marcus Lecture -- Integrating surfaces with organic chemistry applied to dynamic studies of cell behavior and the development of biomaterials for cell tissue engineering.

Muhammad Yousaf, Assistant Professor
Lab Science Building, Rm 300

Event Description

Hosts: Marcus Lecture Committee


This seminar will describe two recent projects. 1. Interfacing surface chemistry with cell biology to generate new proteomic microarrays and dynamic surfaces to study cell behavior and stem cell differentiation. 2. The development of new biomaterials via a general synthetic chemoselective redox responsive ligation (click) and release strategy applied to cell surface engineering to control dynamic 3-D cell tissue interactions.
