SYNOPSIS
Dynamic modeling and control can be used not only to explain existing observations and predict new findings to guide further experimental study in systems biology but also to provide a possibility for understanding and regulating the fate of a live cell at cellular and molecular levels. In this talk, the speaker will present how dynamic modeling and control in control engineering community might be adopted to understand and regulate shear-stress-induced Ca2+ signal transduction in vascular endothelial cells, a hot issue in cell mechanobiology society.  

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Dr. Qin Kai-Rong is currently a professor of Department of Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Electronic Information and Electrical Engineering, Dalian University of Technology, China. He obtained his B.S. in Mechanics and PhD in Fluid Mechanics from Fudan University in 1991 and 1996 respectively. He had been a lecturer and an associate professor in mechanical engineering in Fudan University from 1996 to 2005. He became an associate professor in biomedical engineering in Shanghai Jiaotong University from 2005 to 2007. From 2002 to 2004, he conducted his postdoctoral training in Graduate School of Medicine, The University of Tokyo, Japan. He was a research fellow in National University of Singapore from 2007 to 2010, and then moved to Dalian University of Technology as a full professor in 2010. His research interests include biomechanics and health engineering, modeling and control in systems biology, microfluidics and medical instruments.
