McNulty Program Lecture Series

Fall 2015 McNulty Lecture


Wednesday, October 21, 2015: The McNulty Scholars Lecture Series hosts guest lecturer Dr. Omowunmi (Wunmi) Sadik, Professor and Director of the Center for Advanced Sensors and Environmental Systems in the Department of Chemistry of the State University of New York at Binghamton. Dr. Sadik completed her Ph.D. in Chemistry at the University of Wollongong in Austrialia, and did her post-doctoral research at the US Environmental Protection Agency.  She is a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and of the American Institute for Medical & Biological Engineering.  She is the recipient of Harvard University's Distinguished Radcliffe Fellowship, and serves as the President and Co-Founder of the Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization.  Her research focuses on new, more objective concepts in pain transduction using multidimensional biosensors deveoepd for markers of acute and chronic pain. She holds 4 US patents for her work on biosensors.

Her lecture, entitled Biochemical Sensor: An objective approach for pain measurement, begins at 3:35PM in room 400 in the Science Center. This lecture is free and open to the public.


Fall 2014 McNulty Lecture

Wednesday, October 22, 2014: The McNulty Scholars Lecture Series hosts guest lecturer Kathleen J. Stebe, Ph.D., Deputy Dean for Research in the School of Engineering and Applied Science, and the Richer and Elizabeth Goodwin Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. Professor Stebe earned her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at the Levich Institute of the City College of New York. Previously, she was the Chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. Her research focuses on capillary phenomena, and she is an expert in interfacial flows. Dr. Stebe and her group exploit fields that arise spontaneously when microparticles are placed in contact with deformable matter.

The lecture, “Creating Order: Opportunities for Directed Assembly in Soft Matter,” will take place in the Science Center, Room 400 at 3:35 p.m. The lecture is free and open to the public.
