  • Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things and Ming Hsieh Institute Seminar

    Speaker: Douglas Densmore, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Boston University

    Talk Title: Genetic Circuits, Cloud Labs, and COVID-19: CPS as Applied to Synthetic Biology

    Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things

    Abstract: Synthetic biology is the process of forward engineering living systems. These systems can be used to produce bio-based materials, agriculture, medicine, and energy. One approach to designing these systems is to employ techniques from the design of embedded electronics. These techniques include abstraction, standards, and formal models. Together these form the foundation of "bio-design automation", where software, robotics, and microfluidic devices combine to create exciting biological systems of the future. In this talk, I will discuss three general topics. The first is how software tools can be created to act as "genetic compilers" that transform high-level specifications into engineered "genetic circuits". The second topic is how these genetic circuits can be automatically communicated to both local and community "cloud labs" where robotics, assembly-line style automation, and formalized protocol descriptions can be employed to safely and efficiently manufacture these systems. Finally, I will conclude with how these two elements have combined in to power the BU Clinical Testing Laboratory where over 5000 COVID-19 tests are performed daily.

    Biography: Douglas Densmore is a Kern Faculty Fellow, a Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science and Engineering Faculty Fellow, and Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University. His research focuses on the development of tools for the specification, design, assembly, and test of synthetic biological systems. His approaches draw upon his experience with embedded system-level design and electronic design automation (EDA). Extracting concepts and methodologies from these fields, he aims to raise the level of abstraction in synthetic biology by employing standardized biological part-based designs which leverage domain-specific languages, constraint-based genetic circuit composition, visual editing environments, microfluidics, and automated DNA assembly. This leads to a new research area he calls "Hardware, Software, Wetware Co-design".

    Speaker: Mette Olufsen, NCSU

    Talk Title: Pulmonary hypertension assessed using mathematical modeling integrating imaging and time-series data

    Abstract: Cardiovascular disease management involves interpreting imaging data, time-series data, and single-valued markers often measured over several visits. While each data type provides insight into the disease state, these snapshots cannot easily be integrated to provide insight into disease predictions. In this talk, we demonstrate how to interpret the disease state using multiscale mathematical modeling integrating computed tomography (CT) images with blood pressure measurements from right heart categorization. We use these models to characterize patient-specific remodeling in the proximal and distal vasculature. We calculate patient-specific nominal parameter values using morphometric and invasively measured hemodynamic data, use sensitivity analysis to determine what parameters best inform the data, and a Bayesian approach to infer identifiable subject-specific parameters and propagate the uncertainty of pressure and flow predictions to all large vessels. We also validate frequency domain results assessing change in wave-propagation and wave-intensity with the disease. For the micro-vasculature, we conduct a morphometric analysis characterizing changes in the arterial networks' branching structure by extracting skeletonized networks from the micro-CT images and using a custom algorithm to represent the network as a connected graph. We determine subject-specific fractal parameters and analyze how these changes with PH. Our model and data analysis outcomes are combined to understand the link between spatially distributed etiologies and global hemodynamics and shed light on the prospect of combining the model and graph-based morphometric analysis of vascular trees.

    Biography: Dr. Olufsen, Professor, has been associated with the NCSU Mathematics Department since 2001. She got her Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from Roskilde University, Denmark in 2001, for which she developed a 1D systemic arterial model for use in an Anesthesia Simulator. After graduating, she spent three years at Boston University, working with Nancy Kopell and Ali Nadim. At NCSU her main focus has been on developing patient-specific models for understanding the cardiovascular system and its control. Her recent work has focused on using modeling to understand pulmonary hypertension integrating imaging and time-series data. She has mentored more than 20 graduate students (two who are Assistant Professors at USC) and a large number of undergraduate students. She has published more than 100 manuscripts and organized numerous workshops and conferences including SIAM Life Sciences. She served as a scientific advisor for the Mathematical Biosciences Institute at Ohio State and is currently the director for the NCSU Research for Undergraduates Program.
