Dr Akpa thanks the wonderful people at Clemson Chemistry for hosting her for a day of discussing fluorescent nanoparticles, peptoids, antioxidants and more before her seminar on ‘Math + Biochemistry + Physiology: An examination of toxicity and lipid-mediated toxicity reversal using integrative physiological models’.
Tuesday, Oct 13 @ 4:15PM. Dr Akpa will join NCSU’s mathematical biologists to discuss the use of math, biochemistry, and physiology to interrogate differential toxicity.
On October 1st, Dr Akpa spent a day with engineers and pharmaceutical scientists at the University of Iowa, where she gave a talk entitled: “Physiologically based dynamic models reveal the multi-functional nature of antidotal lipid emulsions”. She thanks the faculty and students of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering for a great day in Iowa City.
Dr Akpa joins the Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences at North Carolina State University. Hired as an Assistant Professor of Integrated Synthetic and Systems Biology, Prof Akpa joins engineers, biologists and others as part of an interdisciplinary cluster through the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program.
Thanks to the amazing students of the EMRLab @UIC! It’s been an honor working with you all.
We’re taking our work to the 89th ACS Colloids and Surface Science Symposium. A talk entitled “Anticoagulant incorporation in lipid bilayers indicates a biophysical mechanism for differential toxicity” will showcase the efforts of PhD student Manuela Ayee and undergraduate student Chuck Roth. The work is part of a larger effort to characterize and develop countermeasures against superwarfarin toxicity (NIH U01NS083457). 9:50AM Wednesday, June 17th @ 7500 Wean Hall, Carnegie Mellon University
