LLE: Education in Engineering Lecture: We need a moral infrastructure: “Calling in” the relationship between engineering education’s structural racism and its continuing trivialization of the climate crisis (Alice Pawley, Purdue)

November 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

EDUCATION IN ENGINEERING LECTURE Co-hosted with the Institute for Studies in Transdisciplinary Engineering Education & Practice (ISTEP) Alice Pawley, Purdue Host: Prof. Greg Evans   Social activism has increased, even during the COVID pandemic, around both systemic racism in North America and around the climate crisis internationally.  While both movements have roots decades old, we are not yet seeing a sea-change in engineering curricula around either, despite its necessity. I argue there are similarities between engineering education’s intransigence on social justice…

December 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, Columbia Hosts: Profs Milica Radisic & Molly Shoichet   The classical paradigm of tissue engineering involves an integrated use of human stem cells, biomaterials (providing a specialized template for tissue formation) and bioreactors (providing environmental control, dynamic sequences of molecular and physical signals and insights into the structure and function of the forming tissues). This approach results in an increasingly successful representation of tissue development, regeneration and disease. Bioengineered human tissues are now being tailored to the patient…

AEESP DISTINGUISHED LECTURE Andreas Lendlein, University of Potsdam Host: Prof. Elodie Passeport   “Airborne particles exist in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and chemical compositions. Some are natural, some are emitted from human activities, and others are formed in the atmosphere from gases. The gases can also be natural or anthropogenic. Once airborne, particles can be carried hundreds or even thousands of kilometers by wind before interacting with surfaces and depositing. In this talk, we examine the many ways in…

April 6, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Anne Meyer, Technical University of Denmark Host: Prof. Emma Master   Enzyme technology now targets using enzymes for catalysing very specific molecular conversions for production of particular compounds. Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are a group of lactose-based carbohydrates which are abundant (5-20 g/L) in human milk. More than 200 different HMO structures have been identified in human milk, but these structures are barely present in bovine milk. HMOs play crucial roles in infant health and development. Hence, a large incentive exists…

April 13, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Co-hosted with the Institute for Water Innovation (IWI) Nathalie Tufenkji, McGill Host: Prof. Jay Werber   The degradation of bulk plastics in the environment leads to the release of microplastics that can contaminate drinking water sources, agricultural fields, and food supplies. Moreover, weathering of a single microplastic particle can yield billions of nanoplastics and nanoplastic pollution is expected to be ubiquitous in the environment. Nanoplastics are potentially more hazardous than microplastics because they can cross biological membranes; yet, there is little data…
