REACT Kick-Off Symposium

December 7, 2015

REACT Kick-Off SymposiumThe Kick-Off Symposium was a public celebration of the start of the PIRE REACT project. This half-day event included overviews of the REACT research areas, REACT education programs, and introductions to REACT international and industry partners. The event was opened and closed by Penn leaders and visitors from the French Embassy and CNRS, one of France’s research agencies. Dr. Harvey Rubin gave an inspirational keynote talk about global engineering for impact on some of the world’s most challenging problems.

REACT Spring Symposium 2016

March 31, 2016

The REACT Symposium on March 31, 2016 will start with morning project meetings and lunch for the PIRE REACT team. The afternoon activities are open to the public (1:30 – 3:00 pm Poster Session, 3:00 – 3:30 pm Refreshments, 3:30 – 4:30 pm Talk “Engineered glass surfaces: surface chemistry, nanostructures and applications” by Wageesha Senarante, Senior Research Scientist, Corning Inc.).

Talk: C. Picart, "Biomimetic coatings and free-standing membranes"

April 15, 2016

Surface coatings are important in various application fields as they allow to provide “bulk materials” with specific surface properties. In biomedical devices for in vitro diagnosis and in the design of implantable biomaterials, surface coatings are key to control the interactions between devices/biomolecules and implants/soft or hard tissues. I will present our work on the engineering of thin surface coatings and free-standing membranes made by the layer-by-layer assembly of polypeptides and polysaccharides.
