Computing with Biological Agents

Sala de seminários do IBEB, FCUL, Lisboa

Por Dan Nicolau (McGill University, Montreal - Canada).

Prof. Dan Nicolau is the founding Chair of McGill’s Department of Bioengineering at the Faculty of Engineering. He has degrees in Chemical Engineering (PhD, MEng) and in Statistics, Cybernetics & Information Technology (MSc). His research covered polymer physico-chemistry, surface science and engineering, micro- and nanofabrication for semiconductor and biomedical devices, process modeling and control, protein adsorption, and recently biomimetics.

His research interests are currently focusing on three themes:

  • Biomimetics, from nano- or micro-structured surfaces mimicking Nature’s technical solutions that efficiently control the wetting, to intelligent-like algorithms used by microorganisms for space and nutrient searching, essential for survival and growth;
  • Micro- and nano-fluidics devices, from lab-on-a-chip devices, to dynamic nano-devices based on protein molecular motors, for drug discovery, diagnostics and biocomputation;
  • Fundamentals of the interactions of proteins and DNA with surfaces, which are either flat or micro/nano-structured, fabricated via classical microlithography, or via micro-ablation, for applications in biomedical microdevices and biomaterials.

Título/data do evento e logótipos das entidades organizadoras

The program will consist of plenary lectures, oral, flash and poster communications, and a round table about “Science beyond academia: entrepreneurship” - registration is mandatory but free of charge!

This course offers an overview of the different ways to measure biodiversity, and provides tips for the stratification of primary biodiversity data and the construction of variables that describe its various facets. It also includes an in-depth review of the different types of data used to measure biodiversity and their problems and limitations.

The goal of this course is to provide participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including its ecological and social aspects.
