    Title: Couples Oscillations in Biology

    Abstract: The control of proteins by a transcription factor with periodically varying concentration exhibits intriguing dynamical behavior. If the concentration of another element, for instance a ligand responsible for the activation of the transcription factor, is oscillating as well, the system of coupled oscillators can create regions of bistable oscillation states. We investigate how transitions between different entrained states caused by intrinsic noise affect the expression of...

    Title: Interfacial Dynamics of Two-dimensional Polymers

    Abstract: Dynamic interactions between molecules store abundant information in complex materials. With information comes control. Molecular interactions can reconfigure with chemical inputs, leading to outputs by materials at both micro- and macro- scopic scales. At the materials’ interfaces, molecular interactions enable control of basic behaviours such as adhesion, cohesion, and bio-interfacing, crucial for designing complex materials with living characters. Here I discuss the...

    Title: A First Order Phase Transition Underlies Sub-Diffractive Protein Aggregation in Mammalian Cells

    Abstract: Protein aggregation is ubiquitous in neuro-degeneration yet the in vivo formation and regulation mechanisms remain elusive. Here, we develop quantitative cell imaging assays based on super-resolution imaging in fixed cells and light sheet imaging of living cells to study the early steps of protein aggregation in mammalian cells. We investigated misfolded protein aggregation associated with synuclein alpha interacting...
