Please join us for the Knight Campus 2023 fall Entrepreneurship Speaker Series, featuring Jorge Cham.
In his lecture, Jorge Cham will recount his experiences bringing humor into the lives of millions of stressed out academics and tells stories from his travels to over 300 universities and research centers in the US and across the world. Thought-provoking yet humorous, Jorge Cham's talk will examine the source of academics' anxieties, explore the myth of procrastination, and help academics figure out how to convey what they've learned to the outside world.
Jorge Cham is the best-selling and Emmy-nominated creator of PHD Comics, the popular ongoing comic strip about life (or the lack thereof) in academia. He is the co-creator and co-executive producer of the celebrated animated series Elinor Wonders Why, which airs on PBS Kids and in 78 countries around the world. He is the co-author of the award-winning book We Have No Idea (and its follow-up FAQ-U), and the co-host of the iHeart Radio show Daniel and Jorge Explain the Universe. He is also the co-founder of PHDtv, a video science and discovery outreach collaborative, and the author of the upcoming books Oliver's Great Big Universe and Out of Your Mind. Jorge earned his PhD in robotics from Stanford University and was an instructor and research associate at Caltech from 2003-2005. He is originally from Panama.
This event is co-sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Journalism and Communication.
Please join us for the Knight Campus' 2023 Distinguished Lecture Series, "The Delicate Interplay Between Light, Interfaces and Design: 3D Printing of Next Generation Controlled Release Systems," featuring Dr. Joseph M. DeSimone from Stanford University.
Dr. Joseph M. DeSimone is the Sanjiv Sam Gambhir Professor of Translational Medicine, Professor of Chemical Engineering and, by courtesy of Chemistry of Materials Science and Engineering, and of Operations, Information and Technology at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University.
The production of polymer products relies largely on age-old molding techniques. A major reason for this is that additive methods have not delivered meaningful alternatives to traditional processes—until now. In this talk, Dr. DeSimone will describe Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) technology, which embodies a convergence of advances in software, hardware, and materials to bring the digital revolution to polymer additive manufacturing. CLIP uses software-controlled chemistry to produce commercial quality parts rapidly and at scale by capitalizing on the principle of oxygen-inhibited photopolymerization to generate a continual liquid interface of uncured resin between a forming part and a printer’s exposure window. Instead of printing layer-by-layer, this allows layerless parts to ‘grow’ from a pool of resin, formed by light. Compatible with a wide range of polymers, CLIP opens major opportunities for innovative products across diverse industries. Previously unmakeable products are already manufactured at scale with CLIP, including the large-scale production of running shoes by Adidas (Futurecraft 4D); masscustomized football helmets by Riddell; the world’s first FDA-approved 3D printed dentures; and numerous parts in automotive, consumer electronics, and medicine. At Stanford, Dr. Simone's lab is pursuing new advances including digital therapeutic devices in pediatric medicine, new multi-materials printing approaches, recyclable materials, and the design of a high-resolution printer to advance technologies in the microelectronics and drug/vaccine delivery areas, including novel microneedle designs as a potent vaccine delivery platform.
The annual Oregon Bioengineering Symposium is a vibrant gathering that brings together research scientists, clinicians, industry, and bioengineering professionals from around Oregon to engage in stimulating discussions and explore topics of bioengineering. This year’s focus is on “translating ideas into practice” with an array of engaging sessions. The Oregon Bioengineering Symposium is a collaborative effort of OHSU, OSU, and UO and will be hosted this year at the UO Knight Campus.
11:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Should I go to grad school?!
Going to graduate school is a BIG life decision! You can gain specialized knowledge, research, connections, and expertise in your chosen field, which can lead to better career opportunities and increased earning potential. However, it's essential to carefully consider your goals, commitment, and financial situation before deciding to pursue further education. Coming to this event is a great first step!
Explore your interest in pursuing an advanced degree at the Graduate School Fair (11/8 from 11am-3pm in the EMU Ballrooms)!
This event offers a valuable opportunity for you to learn about various graduate programs (both at the UO and other top universities!) and the benefits they provide to prepare you for a career in research, academia, or specialized industry roles. Talk to recruiters about the application process and financial aid, or ask them about career outcomes for students who pursue advanced degrees--this is your opportunity to explore and learn!
Whether you're still exploring career paths or ready to apply for the coming year, the fair is open to students at any stage of your academic journey.
Highlights of the fair:Representatives from graduate programs across the United States (including the University of Oregon), offering a diverse range of degree programs and academic disciplines. Mini-Workshops featuring career coaches, admissions reps, and graduate students who will demystify the application process, writing your purpose statement, and provide tips for maximizing your experience at the fair.
Don't miss this chance to expand your horizons and discover the possibilities that await you in the world of higher education!
Register on Handshake today to learn about all the schools coming and get tips and advice for how to make the most of the fair.
