Engineering Seminar: Biomedical Engineering

Thursday, September 21, 2017 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Louis E. DeFrate, the Frank H. Bassett III, M.D. Associate Professor of Orthoopaedics at Duke University will present a talk: "Application of Imaging Techniques to the Study of In Vivo Knee Health and Function." Abstract: Mechanical loading plays an important role in maintaining cartilage health. Altered mechanical loading (potentially due to factors such as joint injury and obesity) may contribute to the development of osteoarthritis. However, there are currently limited tools available to quantify the local in vivo mechanical environment of cartilage in humans.

The HW/SW Interface Seminar Series: Computer System for Neuroscience

Monday, September 25, 2017 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Abhishek Bhattacharjee, Dept. of Computer Science, Rutgers, will present a talk in HW/SW Interface Seminar Series: "Computer System for Neuroscience". Abstract: Computer systems are vital to advancing our understanding of the brain. From embedded chips in brain implants to server systems used for large-scale brain modeling frameworks, computer systems help us shed light on the connections between low-level neuronal spiking activity and high-level functionality. This talk will show the challenges facing such computer systems.
