Amazon Adventure – IMAX @ MOST
Apr 19 @ 1:00 pm – 1:40 pm
Amazon Adventure tells the epic, true story of explorer Henry Bates’ fascinating 11-year journey through the visually stunning and biodiverse Amazon rainforest as a young man who risks his life for science in the 1850’s. Bates unearths the major discovery of the phenomenon of mimicry, whereby certain animals adopt the look of others that helps them deceive predators and gain an advantage to survive. Little known to the public, Bates made other crucial contributions to biology: identifying 8,000 species new to science and most importantly, putting the first ever case for the creation of a new species, which Charles Darwin called the “beautiful proof” for Natural Selection.

Sensing Your Health: A Small Drop Goes a Long Way @ MOST
Apr 20 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

Speaker: Xiyuan ‘Lillian’ Liu, PhD, Assistant Teaching Professor, Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering and Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Syracuse University

Talk Overview: What would you do with one droplet of fluid? Can you imagine how much information can be extracted from one droplet of sweat, tear or blood? Do you believe that by wearing a custom t-shirt, socks or a headband, the information related to your health conditions can be gathered in real time? The newest advances in wearable microtechnology can help us achieve that. Join us to have some hands-on experience and learn microfluidics and wearable sensors!

Biography: Xiyuan Liu is an assistant teaching professor in the Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering and Department of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering. She received her B.S. in Electrical Engineering in China in 2009 and then completed her M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Clemson University. After that, Lillian finished her PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan State University. She specializes in microfluidics, point-of-care diagnosis and flexible wearable biosensor technology. Specifically, her work focuses on developing biosensing, lab-on-a-chip systems for the emerging applications in clinical diagnosis, wearable sensing and mobile heath (mHeath) technology.
