Research Seminar One of the challenges facing the world is the need to fulfill the growing demand for energy via renewable resources while minimizing CO2 emissions. Photoelectrochemical water splitting into hydrogen and oxygen is one such system capable of renewable solar energy conversion. Previously, we developed a water-oxidation photoanode consisting of nanostructured SnO2 coated with […]

Literature Seminar Dysregulation of cerebral blood flow is related to several diseases in humans, including Alzheimer’s disease, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and Parkinson’s disease. Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS), a technique commonly used to measure diffusion of fluorescent molecules in solution, is able to measure flow velocity of blood in mouse brain vessels. Fluorescent nanoparticles were […]

Research Seminar Nanomaterials have tremendous potential to improve the performance of devices that store energy or reduce energy consumption. However, it is unknown how particle heterogeneity and particle-particle interactions affect overall device performance. In order to address this problem, the fundamental properties of individual nanoparticles must be better understood. In this talk, I will discuss […]

About the Seminar: Phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate, PI(4,5)P2 is one of the most negatively charged lipids in the plasma membrane of living cells with a net charge ranging from -3 to -5 near physiological pH. The phosphate moieties on this lipid bind tightly to divalent metal cations including Ca2+ and Mg2+. Herein, we use a variety of […]

Lipid bilayer membranes are complex, dynamic, and functional structures composed of a wide diversity of lipids, proteins, small molecules, and water organized in heterogeneous domains through noncovalent interactions. The structure and motion of these molecules generate large electric fields within the interior of the membrane that are critical to membrane structure and function. Here, we […]

The diseases produced by trypanosomatid parasites, like American Trypanosomiasis (Chagas disease), Human African Trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness, HAT) and Leishmaniasis constitute an urgent health problem gathered in the poorest regions of the world. These diseases are highly prevalent and classified as neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) by the World Health Organization (WHO) due to low historical investment […]

The functions of many RNA molecules – including mRNAs, long non-coding RNAs, and the genomes of RNA viruses – require that an RNA fold back on itself to create intricately and complexly folded structures. Until recently, however, we had little idea of the broad interrelationships between RNA structure and function because there simply did not […]

Nature has inspired inorganic chemists to look beyond the immediate coordination sphere of complexes to tune and optimize reactivity. Two important themes have been the use of pendant proton donors/acceptors as well as incorporating redox-active moieties into ligand scaffolds. However, nature does not limit itself to an “either/or” strategy, and uses both of these features […]

Coinage metal-thiolate assemblies exemplify hierarchical structure and structure-property relationships.  They comprise structurally weak hydrogels of stacked sheets.  Inclusion of an anti-solvent in synthesis of these materials fundamentally changes their structure, resulting instead in colloidal amorphous metal complexes. The colloids undergo a hydration-dependent and reversible sol-gel transition.  Because the colloids are flexible, they morph in the […]

Literature Seminar Ozone is a key air pollutant that impacts human and ecosystem health, and acts as a short-lived climate forcer. Despite being the focus of many decades or research, atmospheric ozone trends in urban areas can still be difficult to predict. Based on previous laboratory and modeling studies,1,2 heterogeneous uptake of atmospheric HO2 on […]
