The 2017-18 NYC Bone Seminar Series will honor Steve Cowin and his contributions to bone research.

Tribute to Steve Cowin: Quantitative Assessments of Bone Adaptation and Mechanotransduction, Susannah P. Fritton, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering, City College of New York

“In this seminar I will first give a short overview of my almost 30-year interaction with Steve Cowin, from my time as an undergraduate student in his mechanics course at Tulane University to my 19 years as a colleague at City College.  Then I will highlight recent investigations from my lab that have assessed how reduced estrogen levels and disuse conditions affect bone microstructure and interstitial fluid flow.  Using high-resolution microscopy and micro-CT imaging, we have assessed changes in the lacunar-canalicular porosity surrounding osteocytes, as well as  the vascular porosity that houses the bone vasculature, in animal models of postmenopausal osteoporosis and disuse osteoporosis.  We have combined the microstructural assessments with poroelastic finite element modeling to assess interstitial fluid flow through the osteocyte lacunar-canalicular network.  Results of the models demonstrate reduced interstitial fluid velocities in both estrogen-deficient and disuse conditions and suggest that a reduced mechanical input could contribute to the bone degradation that leads to osteoporosis.  In the spirit of Steve, throughout the seminar I will focus on the quantitative aspects of the work, the tie-in with biology, and how these investigations can help to expand our understanding of bone adaptation and mechanotransduction.”

CUNY Graduate Center, Room C197 (C-level), NE corner of Fifth Ave. and 34th St. @ 7pm

Note: Before next week’s seminar, there will be socializing at the Heartland Brewery on the SW corner of Fifth Ave. and 34th St. starting at ~5:45pm – look for the “bone group”

2014 Benjamin W. Zweifach Memorial Lecture
 
Regenerative Engineering: The Theory and Practice of a Next Generation Field By Cato T. Laurencin, M.D., Ph.D.:The next ten years will see unprecedented strides in regenerating musculoskeletal tissues We are moving from an era of advanced prosthetics, to what I term regenerative engineering. In doing so, we have the capability to begin to address grand challenges in musculoskeletal regeneration. Tissues such as bone, ligament, and cartilage can now be understood from the cellular level to the tissue level. We now have the capability to produce these tissues in clinically relevant forms through tissue engineering techniques. Our improved ability to optimize engineered tissues has occurred in part due to an increased appreciation for stem cell technology and nanotechnology, two relatively new tools for the tissue engineer. Critical parameters impact the design of novel scaffolds for tissue regeneration. Cellular and intact tissue behavior can be modulated by these designs. Design of systems for regeneration must take place with a holistic and comprehensive approach, understanding the contributions of cells, biological factors, scaffolds and morphogenesis.</p>

2008 Ben W. Zweifach Lecture
 
"Enzyme Innovation by Evolution" by Dr. Frances H. Arnold.
Scientists’ dreams of constructing new forms of life—either to enhance human well-being or just to prove that we can do it—are somewhat grander than the reality, because we are profoundly ignorant of the mapping from DNA sequence to biological function. Details of molecular interactions rule function, and we just don’t understand the details. For forward engineering of biological systems, I argue that we should look to the design algorithm that has produced the entire biological world: evolution. This simple algorithm works at all scales of complexity, from single proteins to ecosystems, and can be ‘directed’ by controlling the molecular diversity (mutations) and applying artificial selection.
By emulating evolution in the laboratory we create new, finely-tuned biological molecules that exhibit desired properties. And, by uncoupling evolution from biological function, we can explore what is physically possible versus what is merely biologically relevant at the time. These experiments provide insight into the remarkable ability of biological systems to evolve and adapt, and may help us understand how today’s proteins came about.
