WCMM seminar "Life on Chips - Towards microfluidic-based human disease models"

Seminar - Linköpings universitet
Life on Chips - Towards microfluidic-based human disease models Danny van Noort Affiliation: Biotechnology, IFM, Linköping University Thursday 27 April at 15:15 in Linden, entrance 65, Campus US. Abstract Cell cultures on microfluidic chips are a step forward in cell based biological studies, as the amount of reagents reduced while the control over the microenvironment increases. In this manner, cells can be located in specific places, 3D cell constructs can be fabricated that will have a more reliable mimicry of in vivo models [1,2,3] while embryos [4] and highly motile cells, such as ciliates, can be localized for optical interrogation. These systems can be readily used for drug screening or to study single cell behaviour. By coupling together two chips, interactions between two different cell types can be studied. Here, I will look at the impact of glucose concentration on the levels of secretion of intestinal L-cells and pancreatic β-cells, and as such, the effect of L-cells on insulin secretion from the β-cells.

Simone Scarpa, PhD, REMESO: "Multigroup residential segregation between ethnic groups in Stockholm Metropolitan Area"

Seminar - REMESO - Department of Social and Welfare Studies
Simone Scarpa, Postdoctoral Fellow, REMESO, presents his research beyond the limitations of the conventional two-group approach, which leads to an underestimation of differences in the spatial assimilation trajectories of more narrowly defined groups. Stockholm Metropolitan Area is used as a case study by analysing the residential patterns of a wide range of national-origin groups and considering simultaneously their reciprocal spatial distances.
