LLE: Scaling up microbial processes: Data-Driven Modeling and Strain Engineering for Robust Performance in Large Bioreactors

October 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Register for the online event >> View the complete 2020-21 LLE schedule >> Abstract Sooner or later, novel strains and bioprocesses need to be transferred from labs to large scale industrial bioreactors to achieve the successful translation from innovation to commercialization. Often enough this sensitive step of ‘scale-up’ coincides with non-wanted loss of production performance, i.e. with the deterioration of the crucial TRY values (titer, rates, yields). Accordingly, it is a challenging task to thoroughly understand underlying reasons and to…

Online: MIE Distinguished Seminar Series with Professor Peer Fischer: “Microsystems and Nanorobots Actuated by Light, Magnetic Fields, and 3D Ultrasound”

*ONLINE* November 13, 2020 Professor Peer Fischer (Micro Nano and Molecular Systems Lab, University of Stuttgart): Microsystems and nanorobots actuated by light, magnetic fields, and 3D ultrasound Abstract Inspired by Richard Feynman’s famous lecture “There’s plenty of room at the bottom”, researchers are striving to build synthetic motors, machines, and robots ‘bottom up’ from the nanoscale. However, despite progress in crafting static structures of increasing complexity, truly functional dynamic machines are still in their infancy. Building and powering artificial structures…

LLE: Metabolic Pathways for the Whole Community

November 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Register for the online event » Abstract For over 3.5 billion years microorganisms have evolved to solve complex metabolic problems at the individual, population and community levels of biological organization, innovating distributed solutions to nutrient and energy conversion processes that have fundamentally transformed the surface chemistry of the earth and generated a deep reservoir of genomic diversity. Over the past decade, high-throughput sequencing and mass spectrometry platforms have transformed our perception of this microcosmos, illuminating microbial dark matter and conceptually…

LLE: Lubricin – Alleviating the Effects of Dry Eye

March 31, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Register for the event >> Abstract Dry eye is an affliction where the tear film of the eye is unable to protect the cornea epithelium. One suspected cause of this condition is a deficiency of mucin, a protein that is thought to enhance wettability and reduce friction experienced during blinking. We report on the development of a model for mucin deficient dry eye and an investigation of the ability of lubricin, a heavily glycosylated protein, to restore lubricity and low…
