    Hosted by: Oleg Gang

    Center for Functional Nanomaterials Seminar Programmed Self-Assembly of Complex DNA Nanostructures and Applications in DNA Nanofabrication Cheng Tian Department of Chemistry, University of Pittsburgh Friday, May 1, 2015 10:00 a.m. Bldg. 735 " Conference Room A This presentation focuses on the design and synthesis of complex DNA nanostructures and their applications in DNA nanofabrication. DNA has served as a superb building block to self-assemble into a wide range of predictable and robust nanostructures with the bottom-up method. Synthesized DNA nanostructures have been applied as templates for the organization of guest molecules and molecular lithography, biosensors for the genetic diagnosis and environmental detection, nanocarriers for the drug delivery therapy, and logic units for the DNA computation. My research focuses on the development of novel DNA building blocks, assembly strategies and simplified design systems to design and synthesize DNA nanostructures with a higher diversity and complexity, and applied DNA nanostructures as scaffolds to organize guest molecules and as templates for the nanopatterning.

    Ca2+ is a ubiquitous intracellular messenger that regulates cellular activities in plants, animals and humans. Cytosolic Ca2+ is kept at a low level, but subcellular organelles such as the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) maintain Ca2+ stores. Under resting conditions, Ca2+ homeostasis is dynamically regulated to equilibrate between active calcium uptake and passive calcium leak. Ca2+ homeostasis is cytoprotective. An overloaded ER Ca2+ content promotes cell death. We determined crystal structures of a Ca2+ leak channel and characterized its biochemical functions. The structure has a novel seven-transmembrane-helix fold consisting of a centralized C-terminal helix wrapped by two triple-helix sandwiches. Lateral displacement of transmembrane helix TM2 by change of pH leaves a transmembrane pore, allowing a leak of Ca2+ across membranes. The leak is regulated by a di-aspartyl pH sensor consisting of two conserved aspartate residues. The leak is intrinsic to all kinds of cells and is cytoprotective for life.

    Hosted by: Soeren Schlichting

    Effective field theory (EFT) is a powerful framework based on exploiting symmetries and controlled expansions for problems with a natural separation of energy or distance scales. EFTs are particularly important in QCD and nuclear physics. An effective theory of QCD, ideally suited to jet applications, is Soft-Collinear Effective Theory (SCET). Recently, first steps were taken to extend SCET and describe jet evolution in strongly-interacting matter. In this talk I will demonstrate that the newly constructed theory, called SCETG, allows us to go beyond the traditional energy loss approximation in heavy ion collisions and unify the treatment of vacuum and medium-induced parton showers. It provides quantitative control over the uncertainties associated with the implementation of the in-medim modification of hadron production cross sections and allows us to accurately constrain the coupling between the jet and the medium. I will further show how SCET and SCETG can be implemented to evaluate reconstructed jet observables, such as jet shapes.

    We present results from a numerical solution of the next-to-leading order (NLO) Balitsky-Kovchegov (BK) equation in coordinate space in the large Nc limit. We show that the solution is not stable for initial conditions that are close to those used in phenomenological applications of the leading order equation. We identify the problematic terms in the NLO kernel as being related to large logarithms of a small parent dipole size, and also show that rewriting the equation in terms of the "conformal dipole" does not remove the problem. Our results qualitatively agree with expectations based on the behavior of the linear BFKL equation.

    Fractional cloudiness in climate models is parameterised in terms of the subgrid-scale variability of humidity. This variability is expressed explicitly or implicitly as the probability density function (PDF) of the total-water specific humidity. No large-scale high-resolved observations of water vapour exist. I will present four approaches to evaluate the humidity PDF despite this observational shortcoming, and show their application to evaluate different cloud schemes. I will then discuss the implications for other cloud processes, and the subsequent improvements within the ECHAM climate model. If time permits, I will also briefly summarise one recent study on an observational constraint on the aerosol radiative forcing.

    We believe that approximately half of all the light from stars is absorbed and reprocessed by dust. The resulting emission is grey body with a temperature near 30 Kelvin. The COBE satellite made the first measurements of the resulting Far Infrared Background (FIRB), but since that time, we have been unable to resolve the background into individual galaxies. The Balloon-borne Large Aperture Submillimeter Telescope (BLAST) was designed to do this job. Its three bands at 250, 350, and 500 microns span the peak in emission for galaxies at z=1. I will discuss the BLAST experiment and present results from our measurements of resolved and unresolved galaxies. I will also discuss the implications for star formation in our own galaxy and how dust is changing the way we look at current and future searches for primordial gravity waves with the Cosmic Microwave Background.

    Center for Functional Nanomaterials Seminar Effect of pH on polyelectrolyte multilayer formation and growth factor release for orthopedic applications Amy M. Peterson Leonard P. Kinnicutt Assistant Professor Department of Chemical Engineering Worcester Polytechnic Institute Wednesday, May 27, 2015 10:00 a.m. Bldg. 735 " Conference Room A Abstract: Because of its strength, durability, and biocompatibility, titanium is a widely used material for orthopedic implants. However, its insufficient integration with the surrounding bone tissue regularly leads to implant loosening and premature implant revision. A promising solution to improve integration is to modify the implant surface chemistry and topography by coating it with a protein-eluting polyelectrolyte multilayer (PEM) coating. Bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2), a potent osteoconductive growth factor, was adsorbed onto the surface of anodized titanium, and PEM coatings prepared from solutions of poly-L-histidine (PLH) and poly(methacrylic acid) (PMAA) were built on the BMP-2 layer. The effect of the solutions' pH during the deposition process was investigated. High levels of BMP-2 released over several months were achieved. Approximately 2 μg/cm² of BMP-2 were initially adsorbed on the anodized titanium and a deposition pH-dependent release behavior was observed under physiological conditions. More stable coatings were assembled at pH values corresponding to the closed state of the polyelectrolyte complex. Three different diffusion regimes could be determined from the release profiles: an initial burst release, a sustained release regime and a depletion regime. Mass adsorption monitoring using quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (QCM-D) showed that PLH was adsorbed in greater quantities than PMAA

    The LHCb detector is a forward arm spectrometer on the Large Hadron Collider, designed for the study of particles containing b or c quarks. A variety of recent results from the Run I dataset, taken from 2010 - 2013, will be presented, emphasizing the scope of the LHCb physics program. These areas include central exlusive production of quarkonia, exotic particle searches, precision electroweak cross-sections, CKM measurements, and more. Prospects for Run II measurements will be outlined.

    Presented by Igal Jaegle, University of Hawai`i at Mānoa

    Hosted by: Ketevi A. Assamagan

    The dark photon, A′,, and the dark Higgs boson, h′, are hypothetical constituents featured in a number of recently proposed Dark Sector Models. We will present a search for these particles in the so-called Higgs-strahlung channel, e+e''A′h′, with h′'A′A′. We investigated ten exclusive final-states with A′'e+e', μ+μ', or π+π', in the mass ranges 0.1 GeV/c2 <mA′<3.5 GeV/c2 and 0.2 GeV/c2 <mh′<10.5 GeV/c2. We also investigated three inclusive final-states, 2(e+e')X, 2(μ+μ')X, and (e+e')(μ+μ')X, where X denotes a dark photon candidate detected via missing mass, in the mass ranges 1.1 GeV/c2 <mA′<3.5 GeV/c2 and 2.2 GeV/c2 <mh′<10.5 GeV/c2. Using the entire 977fb'1 data set collected by Belle, we observed no significant signal. We will also discuss prospects for searches for light dark matter and the dark photon in the radiative decay process at Belle and Belle II.

    "Detection of Lensing of the CMB by Dark Matter Halos"

    Presented by Mathew S Madhavacheril, Stony Brook University

    3 pm, Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

    Hosted by: Morgan May

    I will report on the first detection of lensing of the cosmic microwave background by dark matter halos. Halo lensing of the CMB provides a method for constraining cluster masses complementary to optical weak lensing, with the advantage that the source plane has a very well determined redshift and statistical properties. In this work, the lensing field was reconstructed from CMB temperature observations using the ACTPol telescope and stacked at the location of CMASS galaxies which trace dark matter halos of ~10^13 M_solar galaxy groups, providing a 3.2 sigma detection and a ~35% mass constraint. I will also briefly touch on the capabilities of future CMB experiments to use this method to constrain dark energy parameters.
