Fluid flow-induced shear stress environment is an important regulatory cue in breast cancer cell migration and resultant metastasis. For example, interstitial flow from elevated pressures in tumors has been implicated in breast cancer cell migration. Despite the important role of flow situation in regulating these processes, the mechanical to biochemical signal transduction (mechanotransduction) pathways in the cancer cell remains to be elucidated.
For a stem cell, the future is wide open. It can divide infinitely to create more stem cells, or it can grow up into other kinds of cells, taking its place in the heart, brain, or other organs. It’s important that stem cells be protected from infection: some of them are starting material for babies, and others make up a crucial reservoir to build or rebuild body tissues as needed. An intruder that damaged or killed stem cells would be disastrous, but how they go about protecting themselves has been a decades-long mystery.
Wearables have emerged as an increasingly promising interactive platform, imbuing the human body with always available computational capabilities. This unlocks a wide range of applications, including discreet information access, health monitoring, fitness, and fashion. However, most commercially available wearables are primarily composed of traditionally rigid materials (e.g., metals and hard plastics), limiting their placement to locations of low movement or flexibility (e.g. wrist).
This project will involve modeling the dynamics of artificial neural networks using ideas from statistical physics, and control theory. Undergraduates with strong interest in physics/math/programming are encouraged to apply for theoretical and computational work in this exciting new area.
This position in the Dynamical Systems Lab (DSL) in MME department is for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) based study of active fluid systems. An 'active fluid' is a suspension of particles that can propel by extracting energy from its surrounding fluid medium, and display collective motion patterns. In this project, students will learn the physics of these systems, and perform CFD simulations. Ideally, the applicants would have taken a fluid mechanics course.
Help us improve our system for social network data collection and analysis as part of the ODIN Project! We are looking to hire a motivated part-time Software Engineer to be part of our team. You will begin by familiarizing yourself with the system and code, and then help us improve ODIN by coding new modules in Java and Python. Qualified candidates will be students at University of Nebraska-Lincoln with an interest in a software development and/or testing career.
Help us improve our system for disease epidemic simulation as part of the MABUSE Project! We are looking to hire a motivated part-time Software Engineer to be part of our team. If selected, you will begin by familiarizing yourself with the system and its code, and then help us by developing software modules in C#. Qualified candidates will be students at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln with an interest in a software development career.
