Lab Tour – Yazdan and Kueh Lab
Date: Wednesday, October 10th, 2018
Time: 9:45 am – 11:00 am
Location: Foege First Floor Lobby
Step inside two bioengineering-related labs and speak with researchers about their work! To attend, RSVP here before Sunday 10/7 at 11:59pm. Spots are limited, so sign-ups are on a first-come first-served basis. The labs we will be visiting are:
The Yazdan Lab
The Yazdan Lab aims to develop novel neural interfaces as well as investigate the plasticity mechanism of the brain. Their goal is to use neural technologies to develop stimulation-based therapies to help restore function and mobility in individuals with neurological disorders such as stroke. The Yazdan Lab is part of both the Bioengineering and Electrical Engineering departments at UW.
The Kueh Lab
The Kueh Lab studies the molecular circuitry that controls cell fate decisions in immune cells. They want to develop an understanding of how these circuits work in living cells and what design principles underlie their operation. Their studies aim to lay foundations for engineering immune cells to fight cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Researchers in the Kueh Lab utilize a variety of approaches, including live-cell imaging, mathematical modeling, mouse reporter models, and modern genetic and biochemical approaches.
