Soap Bubbles and Water Drops: Revealing Cellular Gossip, October 11

Andy Sarles, associate professor in the UT Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering, will present “Soap Bubbles and Water Drops: Revealing Cellular Gossip” Friday, October 11.

Simple liquid surfaces such as soap bubbles and water droplets can mimic how living cells communicate. In his presentation, Sarles will discuss how this understanding holds the keys to treating diseases using natural cell processes and may even reveal new ways of computing using the chemical and electrical processes of the brain.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, Oct. 11 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac.
