Dr. Srivatsan gives
invited talk at international congress
Dr. Malathi Srivatsan,
Molecular Biology, was recently invited to give a talk at the Fifth
International Bioengineering Congress at Tepecule
in Izmir, Turkey. She presented “Interactions of Nanomaterials and Neurons: Potential Applications and Concerns"
during the plenary session. This has led to
developing research collaborations between faculty in the
Bioengineering department at
Ege University in Izmir and Dr. Srivatsan
Dr. Srivatsan, Dr. Haran, receive
funding for research
Dr. Malathi Srivatsan, Molecular Biology, and Dr. Shivan Haran,
Mechanical Engineering, will collaborate on a National Science
Foundation (NSF) proposal, "Stream Computing for Research and
Education in Science and Engineering." Dr. Kenji Yoshigoe of the
University of Arkansas-Little Rock (UALR) is the
Principal Investigator (PI) and Dr. Srivatsan is one of the
Co-Principal Investigators (Co-PIs). The NSF funding of $400,000 for
this collaborative project will provide Dr. Srivatsan and Dr.
Haran with multi-gigabit connections to stream large volumes of data
in real time to a high-performance cluster at UALR. This system will enable
collaborative research between researchers at UALR and Dr. Srivatsan to detect and analyze electrophysiological signals from
neurons interacting with ligands, neurotransmitters, and nano
materials; the system will also allow UALR researchers and Dr. Haran to analyze soil conditions and ground
motions for earthquake-related applications.
