  • MAE Seminar Series: Irreversible Electroporation for the Treatment of Brain Cancer » Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering » University of Florida
    patients with unresectable tumors IRE therapy uses small 1 2mm surgical probes to deliver low energy microsecond pulses for approximately 5 minutes These pulses induce nanoscale defects within the lipid bilayers of the targeted tissue killing the cells with sub millimeter resolution at therapy margins Through treatment planning algorithms developed by our laboratory the IRE zone can accurately be predicted to optimize treatment outcome and mitigate thermal effects Treatment planning is complicated by the fact that the field distribution the greatest single factor controlling the extents of IRE depends on the electrode configuration pulse parameters and any tissue heterogeneities IRE is unique among tissue ablation techniques in affecting only the cell membrane while tissue molecules everything encompassing collagen structures to proteins remain intact thereby making treatment near critical structures such as major blood vessels and nerves possible We are currently developing IRE for the treatment of Malignant Glioma MG and in particular glioblastoma multiforme GBM which has a patient median survival of only 15 months One of the reasons for poor survival is that glioma cells typically infiltrate the brain up to 2cm beyond the volume of the visible tumor Our preclinical work to date has focused on helping canine patients with naturally occurring MG which are excellent translational models of human MG Our results show that IRE treatment can be planned and monitored with techniques used routinely in neurosurgical practice and administered in a minimally invasive fashion Results of our ongoing trials have been extremely positive further supporting that IRE is effective for the treatment of MG including tumors refractory to surgery radio and chemotherapies Additionally I will discuss our use of biotransport principles to develop technologies licensed to other companies ranging from small start ups to large corporations with applications in tissue engineering microfluidic isolation of tumor initiating cells and medical device design Biography Rafael V Davalos is a Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics and the Virginia Tech Wake Forest University School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences He also holds Adjunct Appointments in Mechanical Engineering the Wake Forest Comprehensive Cancer Center and at the Wake Forest Institute of Regenerative Medicine Dr Davalos has 14 issued patents which have been licensed to 5 companies He serves on the editorial board for the ASME Journal of Medical Devices and IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering Dr Davalos received his BS from Cornell University and his MS and PhD from the University of California Berkeley Prior to his career as a faculty member Davalos was a Principal Member of Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories In 2012 he received the award for the Most Outstanding Dissertation Advisor at Virginia Tech In 2014 Dr Davalos received the Virginia Tech ICTAS Innovator Award and the Innovator award at TechNite 2014 His invention for non thermal ablation was listed in NASA Tech Briefs as one of the top 7 technological breakthroughs of 07 and has been used to treat over 5000 people with cancer He has over 70 peer reviewed articles

  • MSE Seminar: Nonclassical Crystallization in Biomimetic and Biological Mineralization Processes » Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering » University of Florida
    the recent years biomimetic crystallization and the intense study of biominerals provided increasing evidence for additional pathways of crystallization and mineralization which proceed outside of the framework of classical crystallization as given in the 1920s Now it seems clear that biominerals such as nacre typically form in vivo by a nonclassical since colloid mediated mineralization process For the prominent case of nacre we were able to document by an elaborate scanning electron microscopy study that nacre forms by a colloid mediated mineralization process and not by a classical ion by ion growth A similar mineralization by colloid attachment and transformation MCAT can be easily triggered in vitro by the employment of polyelectrolytes in the so called polymer induced liquid precursor PILP process First documented by Gower in the late 1990s the polymeric additive imitating the action of unusually acidic proteins in vivo suppresses classical nucleation of a solid crystalline phase and promotes the formation of a transient and highly hydrated liquid condensed mineral precursor phase This unusual phase becomes the crucial mineralization agent changing fundamentally the character of the mineralization reaction The PILP process counts therefore among the ambassadors of nonclassical crystallization processes which currently shake our traditional perception of crystallization processes the route to the formation of a solid phase runs no longer via classical nucleation Instead a pseudomorphic solidification process takes place the transient and highly hydrated liquid condensed mineral precursor phase dehydrates solidifies and eventually crystallizes under retention of its non equilibrium morphology Although the PILP process may represent a potent method to generate crystalline materials with non equilibrium morphologies its mechanistical foundations remain still enigmatic Meanwhile it became clear that a liquid condensed mineral precursor phase can generate under well controlled conditions and that its existence may be connected to the phenomenon of prenucleation clusters We will review the current state of knowledge concerning the PILP process its connection to nonclassical crystallization processes and its morphosynthetic potency Finally we will demonstrate that the inherent pseudomorphic transformation of the PILP process enables us to generate complex crystallographic properties such as crystal lattice tilting twisting and crystal branching similar to those which toughen biominerals in vivo Bio Sketch Dr Stephan E Wolf received his PhD at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz Germany under Professor Wolfgang Tremel which studying chemistry His thesis Nonclassical Crystallization of Bivalent Metal Carbonates was supported by a Konrad Adenauer Foundation scholarship Following a postdoc appointment with Professor Rademann s group at the Humboldt University Berlin he received a DFG PostDoc scholarship and joined the CNRS Laboratoire Biogéoscience working with Dir Dr Frédéric Marin at the University of Dijon on proteomic characterization of intracrystalline biomineralization proteins in bivalves Then he went to Cornell with Dr Lara A Estroff MSE s group as a research assistant In 2014 he became an Assistant Professor for Biomimetic Materials and Processing at the Chair of Glass and Ceramics in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering of the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen Nürnberg Dr Wolf recently received the
