This event is open to all Case Western Reserve University students, faculty and staff but geared toward science and engineering students. You will experience all of the research resources, study tools and learning opportunities available at Kelvin Smith Library. Resource Lab will feature free food, prize giveaways and demos. For more information, contact Daniela Solomon at email@example.com.
The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science presents brain-machine interface expert Miguel Nicolelis, Duke School of Medicine Distinguished Professor of Neuroscience at Duke University. In his talk, Nicolelis will describe how state-of-the-art research on brain-machine interfaces makes it possible for the brains of primates to interact directly and in a bi-directional way with mechanical, computational and virtual devices without any interference of the body muscles or sensory organs. He will review a series of recent experiments using real-time computational models to investigate how ensembles of neurons encode motor information.
Presented by the Swagelok Center for Surface Analysis of Materials, this one-day short course is designed for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, faculty and anyone interested in microscopy, X-ray diffraction and surface analysis. Email Sharon Dingess at firstname.lastname@example.org to register, using "2016 registration for SCSAM 1-Day Short Course" in the subject line.

The Case Western Reserve University community is invited to attend the fall 2016 Ford Distinguished Lecture on Nov. 3 featuring Carla Mann Woods, CEO of Mann Healthcare Partners.
She has been developing and marketing medical devices for more than 20 years. She began her career at Pacesetter Systems, where she planned new technology applications and product needs for pacemakers. She joined Advanced Bionics, a neuromodulation company eventually acquired by Boston Scientific. During her tenure at Advanced Bionics/Boston Scientific, she led the business development, product development and marketing for products including the Precision Spinal Cord Stimulator, the BION® microstimulator, implantable infusion pumps and cochlear implants. For these products she holds more than 40 U.S. patents and was the shareholder representative in the Boston Scientific acquisition.
She will present her lecture, “Commercializing Medical Innovation: the Challenges and Opportunities,” at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3 at the Tinkham Veale University Center.
