Semi-monthly Transesophageal Echocardiography Conference conducted by Robert Deegan, MD, PhD, Division Director of Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology. Faculty, Fellows, Residents, CRNAs and Staff are welcome to attend.
Critical care nurses face patients with multiple system dysfunction and complex nursing needs. The minute-to-minute changes of an unstable patient and the high demand for accurate and astute assessments require a sound understanding of key clinical concepts.
This four-hour session provides an opportunity to review patient cases, dissect the clinical presentation and link signs and symptoms to disease processes.
Hosted by: Nursing Education and Professional Development

The Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology (VICB) presents Dr. David Cliffel, Vanderbilt University, Department of Chemistry: "Multianalyte Microphysiometry: A new tool for Cellular Bioenergetics"
Analytical chemistry often leads the forefront of scientific discovery, as new instrumentation allows us to perform new experiments. Our group has created multianalyte microphysiometry by combining microfluidic technologies with electrochemical detection to study the dynamic behaviors of metabolic pathways. We are developing new multianalyte microphysiometry methods with applications in cancer, diabetes, and toxicology. We have added electrochemical detectors for many metabolic analytes into the microfluidic chamber to give a complete dynamical picture of the live cell population.
The ability to mimic biomolecular recognition requires the generation of nanoscale structures that faithfully reproduce the lock & key motif of protein binding. We have designed biomimics that present targeted linear and loop peptide structures on the surface of monolayer protected gold nanoparticles. These biomimics are useful for calibrating immunoassays, especially in our immunosensor work with the quartz crystal microbalance.
Electrochemistry on the Nanoscale
Electron transfer in nanometer-size chemical systems is an important process for the creation of macromolecular electronics. We are interested in the electrochemistry of metallic nanoparticles, redox proteins like Photosystem I, and other electroactive nanomaterials that bridge the gap between bulk solids and discrete molecules in the development of electronic devices using nanotechnology.
Faculty, fellows, students and staff who are involved or are interested in the development of new device technologies, i.e. robotics, mobile medical applications, software, in vitro diagnostics, etc., as well as the development of new intended uses of marketed devices, are invited to participate in an upcoming town hall meeting Wednesday, March 27, from 3 to 4 p.m. in 202 Light Hall.
All interested VU investigators are encouraged to attend.
The agenda for this town hall meeting will include an overview of Vanderbiltí\;s new IDE process for compliance with FDA device regulation and a panel of VUMC investigators who will share their experiences with IDEs and the device development process. The panel will be followed by a question and answer session. This is an excellent opportunity for the research community to engage in discussion regarding the IDE process. The Town Hall will be led by Barbara Gibson, MS, Regulatory Affairs Officer, HRPP.
For more information about this meeting, please contact Barbara Gibson in the Vanderbilt Human Research Protection Program at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 875-8965.
