  • Repeating EventKIUEL Viterbi Impact Clothing Drive

    Wed, Nov 20, 2013 @ 08:30 AM - 05:00 PM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Student Affairs

    Student Activity

    Do you have clothes that you don’t wear much or don’t need? You could clear out space in your closet and make a #ViterbiImpact at the same time by donating those clothes to the Klein Institute for Undergraduate Engineering Life (KIUEL) clothing drive. Please bring any donations to the donation box in RTH110 before 5pm on the 22nd!

    All clothes must be clean and in good condition (not stained or torn).

    Collected clothing will be donated to the Salvation Army.

    Location: Ronald Tutor Hall of Engineering (RTH) - 110

  • Discover Viterbi: Wireless Health Technology

    Wed, Nov 20, 2013 @ 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

    Viterbi School of Engineering Graduate Admission

    Workshops & Infosessions

    Collaboration between physicians and engineers will usher in a new era of healthcare in which caregivers will rely on cost-effective wireless solutions to help patients and communities stay healthy. By capitalizing on the ever-expanding capacities of wireless networks and the increasing precision of sensors, engineers will be able to develop novel healthcare solutions.

    From wearable sensors to ingestible pills that continuously transmit personal health data, technological breakthroughs will enable healthcare providers to monitor medication dosages and responses, as well as a patient’s caloric intake, activity, and sleep. Gaining such data remotely will allow clinicians to manage healthcare interventions without a patient visiting a hospital or clinic, which will lower the costs associated with healthcare and allow for nearly instantaneous treatment responses based on the vital patient data gathered.

    The USC Viterbi School of Engineering is a top 10 ranked graduate engineering program in the nation by U.S News and World Report. Join us for an online information session to learn about the exciting opportunities in Wireless Health Technology available. Professor Giuseppe Caire will be joining the session to highlight important information about the program.

    Speaker: Erik Winfree, Ph.D., California Institute of Technology

    Abstract: Inspired by the information processing core of biological organisms and its ability to fabricate intricate machinery from the molecular scale up to the macroscopic scale, research in synthetic biology, molecular programming, and nucleic acid nanotechnology aims to create information-based chemical systems that carry out human-defined molecular programs that input, output, and manipulate molecules and molecular structures. For chemistry to become the next information technology substrate, we will need improved tools for designing, simulating, and analyzing complex molecular circuits and systems. Using DNA nanotechnology as a model system, I will discuss how programming languages can be devised for specifying molecular systems at a high level, how compilers can translate such specifications into concrete molecular implementations, how both high-level and low-level specifications can be simulated and verified according to behavioral logic and the underlying biophysics of molecular interactions, and how design and analysis methods can cope with the inherent stochasticity and uncertainties of molecular systems.

    Biography: Erik Winfree is Professor of Computer Science, Computation and Neural Systems and Bioengineering at Caltech. He is the recipient of the Feynman Prize for Nanotechnology (2006), the NSF PECASE/CAREER Award (2001), the ONR Young Investigator Award (2001), a MacArthur Fellowship (2000), the Tulip prize in DNA Computing (2000), and MIT Technology Review’s first TR100 list of “top young innovators” (1999). Prior to joining the faculty at Caltech in 1999, Winfree was a Lewis Thomas Postdoctoral Fellow in Molecular Biology at Princeton, and a Visiting Scientist at the MIT AI Lab. Winfree received a B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Chicago in 1991, and a Ph.D. in Computation and Neural Systems from Caltech in 1998.
