Locomotion in Generalized Newtonian Fluids: Living Organisms & Active Colloids Dr. David Gagnon Georgetown University ABSTRACT: Biofilm formation, mammalian reproduction, and infection typically occur in environments where surrounding fluids comprise suspensions of polymers. These polymeric suspensions possess non-Newtonian rheological properties, such as rate-dependent viscosity and viscoelasticity, and present numerous experimental and modeling challenges.

A touch of non-linearity at intermediate Reynolds numbers: where spheres “think” collectively and swim together. Daphne Klotsa University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill ABSTRACT: From crawling cells to orca whales, swimming in nature occurs at different scales. The study of swimming across length scales can shed light onto the biological functions of natural swimmers or inspire the design of artificial swimmers with applications ranging from targeted drug delivery to deep-water explorations.
