14th Northeast Complex Fluids and Soft Matter Workshop

January 2021 (view event flyer)

The Northeast Complex Fluids and Soft Matter (NCS) Workshop brings together researchers working on the science and engineering of complex fluids and soft matter, including polymers, granular materials, biomaterials, colloids, foams, and liquid crystals. This informal workshop will bring together researchers to exchange ideas and foster collaborations. The workshops host a mix of invited talks, short presentations, and networking time.

The 14th Northeast Complex Fluids and Soft Matter (NCS) workshop will be held virtually on January 15th, 2021. The NCS workshop is a one-day event hosted bi-annually at research universities in the NJ/NY/CT area. Previous workshops were held at Rutgers University, City College of New York, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Stony Brook University, NYU Tandon, Stevens Institute of Technology, Columbia University, Princeton University, University of Pennsylvania, and Manhattan College.

Registration is free; however, in order to participate registration is required by January 8th, 2021 using the form below.

COVID-19 Research Project on Respiratory Distress Therapy Modeling

April 2020

Computational Models for Targeting Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS): The severe forms of COVID-19 infections resulting in death proceeds by the propagation of the acute respiratory distress syndrome or ARDS. In ARDS, the lungs fill up with fluid preventing oxygenation and effective delivery of therapeutics through the inhalation route. A group of researchers (including Dr. Farokhirad) in the Lab of Dr. Ravi Radhakrishnan, Professor and Chair of Bioengineering and Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UPenn, are developing a computational model that can design drug-filled nanoparticles and target them to the inflamed lung regions. This project is done in collaboration with Clinical Scientist Dr. Jacob Brenner, who is an attending ER Physician in Penn Medicine. For more information please visit COVID-19 Research Projects.
