Panel and Q&A: Why Should Engineers Engage Professionally with Issues of Racism and Discrimination?

September 10, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Often when issues of racism and discrimination come up, engineers wonder what these issues have to do with them professionally. They may personally be invested in addressing these issues, but may not see them as something to be grappled with from a professional standpoint. This makes it difficult to bring these topics to the engineering classroom or workplace. This panel is envisioned as a conversation starter within FASE on the question of "why should engineers engage professionally in efforts to eliminate racism and discrimination?"…

LLE: Lubricin – Alleviating the Effects of Dry Eye

March 31 @ 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…

Research Spotlight: A Fast and Granular Agent-Based Simulation Model of COVID-19

April 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Location: Virtual - join us on Zoom! A Fast and Granular Agent-Based Simulation Model of COVID-19  Abstract: Most COVID-19 projections are based on compartmental models, which require only high-level information about a disease and population to make high-level predictions. For nuanced assessment of policy interventions to slow disease spread, agent-based simulation (ABS) models that treat individuals uniquely are more appropriate, but can be computationally unwieldy and even intractable. The Medical Operations Research Lab’s Pandemic Outbreak Planner (morPOP) is a computationally…
