  • Location: John Hope Franklin Center Main Gallery
  • Contact: None
  • Description: The Call of Cairo- an exhibition of photographs from the feature documentary film, CAIRO IN ONE BREATH Photographs by Anna Kipervaser, David Degner, Jeremy Johnson, and Meredith Zielke, and edited by Rodion Galperin. It happened to be Ramadan when On Look Films took their first production trip to Cairo in August of 2009. Over the course of these several years, the On Look Films team has been documenting the transformation of the 1,400 year-old tradition of the adhan as a government plan to systemize the call to prayer was being implemented. The Adhan Unification Project proposed to replace the thousands of individual muezzins who had been reciting the adhan five times each day with a single muezzin's voice broadcast live from a central radio station to wireless receivers installed in all of Cairo's officially recognized mosques. CAIRO IN ONE BREATH follows muezzins from when they first heard rumors of plans to install wireless receivers through two years after implementation of the AUP, which has displaced thousands of employees and volunteers. Now, most mosques have receivers installed, though political changes have halted inspection and maintenance. This exhibition is sponsored by the John Hope Franklin Center, Duke Islamic Studies Center, Duke University Middle East Studies Center, Center for Muslim Life, and the Rethinking Global Cities Project, an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation project.

  • Location: DKU Academic Building, Auditorium
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Hadron Physics has drawn great interests from the Chinese nuclear and high-energy physics communities and has been one of the main physics goals at the major facilities (BESIII@IHEP, CEE/HIAF@IMP, ...) in China. At the same time, the Chinese collaborations are playing increasingly important roles at the international hadron physics facilities (Jefferson Lab, RHIC, FAIR, J-PARC, ...), in particular, at the 12 GeV energy upgraded Jefferson Lab in US, which will provide a broad range of opportunities for frontier research in hadronic physics. Furthermore, Electron-Ion Colliders (EIC) have been proposed in US and in Europe as the next generation of QCD frontier. In China, an EIC@HIAF facility has recently been proposed by the Institute of Modern Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences to provide a powerful precision microscope for hadron physics study. In light of these new developments, the 7th workshop will be held at the Duke Kunshan University (DKU), located in the city of Kunshan in Jiangsu province, China during August 3-7, 2015, to discuss the current status, to promote further development of hadron physics in China and to further enhance the collaboration between the Chinese and the international hadron physics community.

  • Location: John Hope Franklin Center Main Gallery
  • Contact: None
  • Description: The Call of Cairo- an exhibition of photographs from the feature documentary film, CAIRO IN ONE BREATH Photographs by Anna Kipervaser, David Degner, Jeremy Johnson, and Meredith Zielke, and edited by Rodion Galperin. It happened to be Ramadan when On Look Films took their first production trip to Cairo in August of 2009. Over the course of these several years, the On Look Films team has been documenting the transformation of the 1,400 year-old tradition of the adhan as a government plan to systemize the call to prayer was being implemented. The Adhan Unification Project proposed to replace the thousands of individual muezzins who had been reciting the adhan five times each day with a single muezzin's voice broadcast live from a central radio station to wireless receivers installed in all of Cairo's officially recognized mosques. CAIRO IN ONE BREATH follows muezzins from when they first heard rumors of plans to install wireless receivers through two years after implementation of the AUP, which has displaced thousands of employees and volunteers. Now, most mosques have receivers installed, though political changes have halted inspection and maintenance. This exhibition is sponsored by the John Hope Franklin Center, Duke Islamic Studies Center, Duke University Middle East Studies Center, Center for Muslim Life, and the Rethinking Global Cities Project, an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation project.

  • Location: DKU Academic Building, Auditorium
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Hadron Physics has drawn great interests from the Chinese nuclear and high-energy physics communities and has been one of the main physics goals at the major facilities (BESIII@IHEP, CEE/HIAF@IMP, ...) in China. At the same time, the Chinese collaborations are playing increasingly important roles at the international hadron physics facilities (Jefferson Lab, RHIC, FAIR, J-PARC, ...), in particular, at the 12 GeV energy upgraded Jefferson Lab in US, which will provide a broad range of opportunities for frontier research in hadronic physics. Furthermore, Electron-Ion Colliders (EIC) have been proposed in US and in Europe as the next generation of QCD frontier. In China, an EIC@HIAF facility has recently been proposed by the Institute of Modern Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences to provide a powerful precision microscope for hadron physics study. In light of these new developments, the 7th workshop will be held at the Duke Kunshan University (DKU), located in the city of Kunshan in Jiangsu province, China during August 3-7, 2015, to discuss the current status, to promote further development of hadron physics in China and to further enhance the collaboration between the Chinese and the international hadron physics community.

This seminar presents modeling work of drug delivery in blood suspensions and circulating tumor cell detection. Methodologically, the Lattice Boltzmann method was employed as the Navier-Stokes fluid solver. The cells were implemented using a coarse grained molecular dynamics model. Besides the fluid and cells, nanoparticles (drug carriers) were also introduced into the model. The coupling method between fluid and solid was based on the Immersed Boundary Method which removes the burden of expensive mesh updating in the traditional Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian approach. Effects of shear rate and hematocrit level on nanoparticle (NP) dispersion rate was studied. An empirical formula was proposed and verified to predict the NP dispersion rate under different flow conditions. Influence of membrane deformability, applied pressure, and micropore size on cell translocation time was also studied. Modeling results show that the translocation time is very sensitive to pressure and micropore size but not very sensitive to cells that can pass through the micropore. However, stiffer cells can be blocked by the micropore. Based on cell deformability, the numerical model could be used to optimize the microfluidic design(micropore size, pressure) so that it can efficiently separate cancer cells from other blood cells.

  • Description: The Call of Cairo- an exhibition of photographs from the feature documentary film, CAIRO IN ONE BREATH Photographs by Anna Kipervaser, David Degner, Jeremy Johnson, and Meredith Zielke, and edited by Rodion Galperin. It happened to be Ramadan when On Look Films took their first production trip to Cairo in August of 2009. Over the course of these several years, the On Look Films team has been documenting the transformation of the 1,400 year-old tradition of the adhan as a government plan to systemize the call to prayer was being implemented. The Adhan Unification Project proposed to replace the thousands of individual muezzins who had been reciting the adhan five times each day with a single muezzin's voice broadcast live from a central radio station to wireless receivers installed in all of Cairo's officially recognized mosques. CAIRO IN ONE BREATH follows muezzins from when they first heard rumors of plans to install wireless receivers through two years after implementation of the AUP, which has displaced thousands of employees and volunteers. Now, most mosques have receivers installed, though political changes have halted inspection and maintenance. This exhibition is sponsored by the John Hope Franklin Center, Duke Islamic Studies Center, Duke University Middle East Studies Center, Center for Muslim Life, and the Rethinking Global Cities Project, an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation project.

  • Location: DKU Academic Building, Auditorium
  • Contact: None
  • Description: Hadron Physics has drawn great interests from the Chinese nuclear and high-energy physics communities and has been one of the main physics goals at the major facilities (BESIII@IHEP, CEE/HIAF@IMP, ...) in China. At the same time, the Chinese collaborations are playing increasingly important roles at the international hadron physics facilities (Jefferson Lab, RHIC, FAIR, J-PARC, ...), in particular, at the 12 GeV energy upgraded Jefferson Lab in US, which will provide a broad range of opportunities for frontier research in hadronic physics. Furthermore, Electron-Ion Colliders (EIC) have been proposed in US and in Europe as the next generation of QCD frontier. In China, an EIC@HIAF facility has recently been proposed by the Institute of Modern Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences to provide a powerful precision microscope for hadron physics study. In light of these new developments, the 7th workshop will be held at the Duke Kunshan University (DKU), located in the city of Kunshan in Jiangsu province, China during August 3-7, 2015, to discuss the current status, to promote further development of hadron physics in China and to further enhance the collaboration between the Chinese and the international hadron physics community.
