IEEE, Santa Clara Valley Chapter presents "Improving the stability of RNA therapeutics through biophysics, machine learning, and crowdsourcing"

Topic: 
Improving the stability of RNA therapeutics through biophysics, machine learning, and crowdsourcing
Abstract / Description: 

The COVID-19 pandemic is unlikely to end until a majority of the world's population is vaccinated against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The first authorized vaccine candidates have been based on messenger RNA molecules that promote translation of SARS-CoV-2 antigen proteins. However, these vaccines currently need to be kept frozen during shipping and storage, and have been logistically problematic for delivery to developing countries and to rural populations in developed countries. The inherent chemical instability of RNA molecules sets a fundamental limit on the stability of mRNA vaccines, but a largely unexplored strategy to reduce mRNA hydrolysis is to redesign RNAs to form protected double-stranded regions while coding for the same proteins. We developed a series of principled biophysical models for RNA degradation, and used these models to launch crowdsourced design initiatives on the massive open online laboratory Eterna, as well as to develop fully-automated design algorithms. We anticipate this work will be formative for guiding future therapeutic and vaccine development in potency and stability.

EE 185: Interactive Light Sculpture Project

Topic: 
Fractal Flyer Functionality!
Abstract / Description: 

In 2019 the Stanford Electrical Engineering Department celebrated its 125th anniversary. As part of celebration, we will be designing, engineering and installing an interactive light sculpture in the 3-story glass stairwell of the Packard building, named FLIGHT. FLIGHT consists of 76 Fractal Flyers, bird-like shapes inspired by the geometry of the stairwell that move. The wings of the Fractal Flyers are dichroic acrylic, so that during the day their color shifts and changes with the angle of light. At night, they light up with patterns across their bodies and wings. The sculpture will remain in Packard for 3-5 years, allowing refinement, exploration of new engineering ideas, and new interactions.

Date and Time: 
Tuesday, September 29, 2020 - 8:00pm to Wednesday, September 30, 2020 - 7:55pm
