BIOE 36Q The Biophysics of Innate Immunity
The innate immune system provides our first line of defense against disease--bothninfections, and cancer. Innate immune effectors such as host defense peptides arendeployed by numerous cell types (for instance neutrophils, macrophages, NK cells,nepithelial cells and keratinocytes) and work by biophysical mechanisms of action. The ourse draws from the primary literature and covers the evolution, st.... More Description for BIOE 36Q

BIOE 60 Beyond Bitcoin: Applications of Distributed Trust
In the past, people have relied on trusted third parties to facilitate the transactions that define our lives: how we store medical records, how we share genomic information with scientists and drug companies, where we get our news, and how we communicate. Advances in distributed systems and cryptography allow us to eschew such parties. Today, we can create a global, irrefutable ledger of transact.... More Description for BIOE 60
