Workshop/Short Course

The Unjamming Transition (UJT) is Fundamental to Wound Healing, Embryonic Development, and Cancer Invasion

Dr. Jeffrey Fredberg's laboratory investigates physical processes expressed by the eukaryotic cell, such as its deformability, contractility, malleability, and motility. His team turned attention more recently from the single cell in isolation to the cellular collective as it might pertain, for example, to disruption of the bronchial epithelial layer in asthma or tumor invasion in breast cancer.

Innovative Product Design in a Regulated Market

As scientists and engineers, it is tempting to think that the key to making a successful product is just a great idea. In reality, that is only one small step on the way to a successful product. This is particularly true in regulated industries like medical devices where even great products can fail to see the light of day because a disciplined design process was not followed AND documented. Fixing an undisciplined development process can be prohibitively expensive and cause unacceptably long delays in getting a product to market.

Twine: A workshop on how to put the “interactive” in Interactive Fiction and text-based games

CDVS Workshop: Ethics of Data Management and Sharing

This workshop will explore the many different ethical issues that can arise with data management and sharing and strategies to address those issues to ensure that goals set by publishers and funders around reproducibility and reuse can be met. How are researchers expected to comply with data sharing policies and practices when they do not actually own the data or ensure disclosure protection for human participants? Likewise how can researchers ethically collect, handle, and share data from certain communities, such as Indeginous People?
