Cells also get tired and stop working

Dr Aaron Torres Huerta

Nanomaterials scientist

If you have drunk sports drinks, you have likely read on the label the name of some electrolytes such as sodium chloride, sodium citrate, or monopotassium phosphate. Such electrolytes have to cross the cell membrane to reach the cell, and there are specialized protein channels to do this job. However, sometimes those proteins do not work correctly, causing channelopathies diseases. For instance, cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder mainly affecting the lungs caused by the dysfunction in the transport of chloride ions. In this talk, we will learn about the design and use of artificial transporters made to mimic the function of proteins.

Augmented reality for surgical interventions

Johnny Duerinck

Neurosurgeon

Performing a surgical intervention requires a great deal of anatomical knowledge of the surgeon, but even despite this extensive knowledge and experience, patient anatomy can vary greatly. Hopefully, technology can help, and we have developed a system of augmented reality that allows the surgeon to gain see-through vision prior to and during surgical interventions. Want to learn more? See you there!
