Nanoscale Biomaterials Deposition: Learning to Speak the Language of Biology

Event Details:

Start date : March 16, 2010
End date : March 16, 2010
Location : Online
Organized by : Elsevier and Nanoink

Event Description:

The webinar will cover the following topics:

Phospholipids as a biocompatible ink for dip-pen nanolithography (Steven
Lenhart)

Being a major structural and functional component of biological membranes,
phospholipids are compatible with the vast array of molecular resources provided
by nature. Incorporation of biofunctional lipids into the ink allows the subcellular
patterning of multiple proteins under the area of a single cell. Furthermore,
the capability of fabricating arbitrary nanopatterns with innately biofunctional
lipids opens new possibilities in the fabrication of nanostructured biosensor
elements.

Parallel Deposition and Orthogonal Tagging of Functionalized Hydrogels
using DPN (Paul Stiles)

A method for the parallel deposition of functionalized nanoscale hydrogels
is discussed. The method is completely general and can be used to simultaneously
pattern multiple arrays of proteins, peptides, nanoparticles or any combination
of the three. Utilizing existing proteomics chemistry, we see how we can orthogonally
react multiple molecules/nanoparticles to their predetermined nanoscale hydrogel
array in a single step.

Micro and Nanoscale Approaches for Interfacing with the Nervous System
(Justin Williams)

In this presentation a variety of approaches is reviewed for controlling the
adhesion, growth and interconnectivity of neurons in culture. A number of new
and very promising approaches for studying neuronal cells, which integrate microfluidic
systems with microelectronics and micro/nano protein patterning is also discussed.
Finally, the development of various microfluidic and micropatterning approaches
for controlling the local microenvironment of neural cells in micro-culture
devices is described.

This webinar will be of value to material and life scientists, biologists,
physicists and all researchers with an interest in nanotechnology.
