What if there can be some extremely small and sophisticated robotic engineers that can travel into the brain, deliver drugs, repair the injury, or detect signs of disease? Nanoparticles may play the roles! However, before they can be used as fancy as what it sounds like, there are a lot of questions to be answered. What do they behave like? How do they interact with the cells? Are they toxic? I will talk about how our lab work on understanding nanoparticle behaviors in the developing brain, and using these knowledge to design system to track brain derived vesicles or virus.

Records of landslides go back almost as far as written human history.  Despite living with landslides for thousands of years, we still have a poor grasp on how to predict when, where, and how large they will be, much less what impact they will have on us and the things we care about.  In this talk, Will Pollock will present his research on forecasting landslide-related damages to inform land use decisions by citizens and policy-makers.

The Pacific Northwest loves oysters — we grow them, we eat them, and we depend on them to protect our shorelines. However, oysters are endangered by rapidly acidifying oceans. Recent studies have shown that oysters do have some sort of environmental "memory" — the way oysters respond to their environment can be passed down to the next generation. How and why this occurs can us understand if oysters will not just survive, but thrive, in future ocean conditions.
