August 18, 2015 - Mark your calendar for a workshop to explore how nano-bio electronics is changing the collection and analysis of important biological fluids. In clinical settings, the health status of an individual is often determined from careful monitoring of physiological vital signs (such as heart rate, temperature, etc.) and through testing of bodily fluids and biochemical markers (such as glucose, blood gases, electrolytes, proteins, etc.). Periodic methods of collection and analysis of markers pose challenges when a continuous stream of information is more useful, especially when monitoring conditions where clotting, infection and irritation risks are important. In this workshop, we will explore the research and development underway to enable continuous monitoring through the collection and analysis of alternative sources such as interstitial fluid, sweat, saliva and tears. We will explore new products which promise non-invasive or minimally invasive paths to biochemical markers. Since the concentration of biomarkers in these body fluids may be significantly different than clinically standardized blood and urine sources, new methods of analysis will also need development, affording opportunities for those exploring these markets. The Blood, Sweat and Tears Workshop focuses on all the body fluid modalities for assessing biomarkers in both the health and human performance domains. What are the advantages and challenges for each fluid modality in correlating the analytical information with the human condition? What is the feasibility for cost-effective continuous monitoring, and how can continuous monitoring be best utilized?

July 29, 2015 - Mechanobiology is a scientific field that studies the principle in sensing and generation of physical force in life. Recent studies in this field shed light on the significance of force, comparable to chemical and biochemical cues, in the regulation of biological processes. However, one unique feature in the mechanical regulation, distinct from chemical/biochemical one, is that it can directly react with the multi-layered architectures of living systems, ranging from nano-scale proteins, subcellular organelles, cells, tissues, organs to whole bodies. \"International symposium on nanoarchitectonics for mechanobiology\" stands at this viewpoint with a special attention to researches on novel molecules and materials to dissect and control mechano-nanoarchitectonics of life. Presentations in the symposium are made by a wide variety of speakers from material science, sensors and actuators, mechanochemistry, interfacial sciences, and of course biology. We hope that all the participants will obtain fresh inspiration from the lectures. Tsukuba, Japan

November 10, 2015 - Soft Matter Science has emerged in recent years as an independent and interdisciplinary research field, bringing together scientists from condensed matter physics, macromolecular and physical chemistry, and molecular and cell biology. The systems investigated in this field include colloidal dispersions, polymer solutions, mixtures and melts, block copolymers, binary and ternary amphiphilic systems (microemulsions), membranes, vesicles and biological macromolecules, and active systems such as synthetic and biological microswimmers. While many of these systems have already been investigated for a long period of time, only recently have their common features and interactions come into focus. These highly complex materials are characterized by structural units with typical length scales ranging from nanometers to micrometers. The experimental and theoretical investigations involved, as well as the understanding of the properties of these materials pose enormous challenges due to their high complexity, the large number of cooperative degrees of freedom, and the large range of relevant length, time and energy scales.
