Week 6

Protein-based Biomaterials

Semester:

This seminar was brought to us by Julie C. Lui. Dr. Julie C. Liu attended Princeton University in Princeton, NJ where she received her bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering. She is currently working as an Associate Professor at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN. The title of the presentation was “Designing Protein Based Materials for Medical Applications.” The main purpose of this lecture was  for us to learn more about the numerous applications of  polymers.

Designing Protein based Materials for Medical Applications

Semester:

          This week’s presentation was about protein-based Biomaterials for Medical Application. The main title for the seminar “Designing Protein based Materials for Medical Application” The speaker for the presentation was Julie C. Liu. First she talked about polymer and also talked about components of polymers. She focused hear talked in cartilage and knee part

Protein-based Biomaterials for Medical Uses

Semester:

On the 17th of October, we had the opportunity to hear Dr. Julie C. Liu give a presentation on protein-based biomaterials for medical uses.  She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering at Princeton University.  She is an assistant professor of biomedical engineering at Purdue University.  Her topic especially piqued my interest because I am a pre-medical student.  She shared how, in her lab, they used protein-based biomaterials to explore an exciting, potential field of medical treatment: tissue engineering.

Protein based biomaterials for medical use

Semester:

Julie C Liu who is an assistant Professor at Purdue University was our guest speaker for this week’s seminar. The subject she presented was  her research on protein-based  biomaterials for medical uses. However she also has interest in  biomaterials, tissue engineering, regenerative medicine and stem cell biology.

Protein Based Materials for Medical Uses

Semester:

This week’s exceptional seminar was on designing protein based materials for medical uses. Our speaker Julie C. Liu came to us from the School of Chemical Engineering at Purdue University.  Her research was mainly based on four areas of interest: materials development, cartilage and bone engineering, adhesive engineering, and vascular tissue engineering.

Protein-based Biomaterials for Medical Use

Semester:

This week, Dr. Julie Liu came to Chemistry Seminar and spoke to us about the developments in her laboratory and what projects they are working on. She presented to us some of the different areas they are working on in lab, such as: biomaterial development, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine. This was a very interesting presentation, at least for me, because I was able to see the practical applications of chemistry and engineering in medicine. Dr.

Protein-based Biomaterials for Medical Uses

Semester:

I enjoyed Julie Liu’s presentation very much for several reasons. To begin, her topic was very interesting and she was a great presenter. Her focus was on biomedical adhesives for tissue engineering. She explained to us the limitations of the surgical adhesives that are currently being used. Adhesives should be biocompatible, functional in a wet environment, both adhesive and cohesive, and flexible just like soft tissue. A lot of commercial glues have two or three of those four components, but not all. She wants to be able to produce one that has all.

Protein Based Materials for Medical Uses

Semester:

This week's presentation featured the speaker Dr. Julie C. Liu from Purdue University where she is an assoicate professor. She spoke to us about protein based materials for medical uses for this week's lecture. Her presentation was very good and engaging since she was asking us questions through the presentation to keep us focused on the subject. She captured my attention since she was speaking about medical uses from proteins and this pertains to the area of work where I would like to end up so I was focused. 

Designing Protein-based Materials for Medical Applications

Semester:

Title: Designing Protein-based Materials for Medical Applications

Speaker: Julie C. Liu

The speaker separated the topic into 3 big different categories: materials development, cartilage/bone engineering, and adhesive proteins. For the materials development, they combined properties from existing proteins and design new functionalities. They used proteins because proteins have high fidelity which means they give a lot of control, and have modular building blocks.
