Faculty Luncheon: Biomolecular Materials, Molecular and Synthetic Biology, and BioPolymers Simulation

Webber, Wei, Whitmer

ND Energy Faculty Luncheon Seminars are held monthly with interested faculty to facilitate cross-disciplinary research collaborations and to enable development of proposal ideas for upcoming funding opportunities. All interested faculty are invited to attend.

The discussion topics for this luncheon will be centered around presentations by Profs. Matt Webber, Na Wei, and Jonathan Whitmer encompassing "Biomolecular Materials, Molecular and Synthetic Biology, and BioPolymers Simulation."

This 30-35 minute presentation session will be followed by discussion focused on (1) Cross disciplinary Basic Research Needs, (2) Potential avenues for external and internal collaborations, (3) Funding sources to target, and if everyone is agreeable, (4) 'Follow-up actions' that we can track. Prof. Haifeng Gao has graciously agreed to initiate the discussion part of this luncheon and with your engagement, we expect to have a very simulating and inspiring exchange of ideas.
