  1. Vaccines derived from chimpanzee adenovirus Y25 (ChAdOx1), human adenovirus type 26 (HAdV-D26), and human adenovirus type 5 (HAdV-C5) are critical in combatting the severe acute respiratory coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic. As part of the largest vaccination campaign in history, ultrarare side effects not seen in phase 3 trials, including thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), a rare condition resembling heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), have been observed. This study demonstrates that all three adenoviruses deployed as vaccination vectors versus SARS-CoV-2 bind to platelet factor 4 (PF4), a protein implicated in the pathogenesis of HIT. We have determined the structure of the ChAdOx1 viral vector and used it in state-of-the-art computational simulations to demonstrate an electrostatic interaction mechanism with PF4, which was confirmed experimentally by surface plasmon resonance. These data confirm that PF4 is capable of forming stable complexes with clinically relevant adenoviruses, an important step in unraveling the mechanisms underlying TTS.

    We will discuss two kinds of exceptional points of degeneracy in waveguides and their respective application in lasers. Such exceptional points occur in waveguides with balanced loss and gain (e.g., PT symmetry), and in waveguides without loss and gain (e.g., periodic Si waveguides). Waveguides with such exceptional points have a strong degeneracy of their wavenumbers and polarization states that enables specific wave physics, only found in these degenerate systems. We will discuss advantages and disadvantages of both concepts to conceive laser regimes, related to high power, high spectral purity, high efficiency, etc, and show some realistic designs involving Si ridge waveguides.

  3. In this poster, we report results related to an NSF EEC CAREER project that characterizes framing agency, defined as making decisions and learning in the process of framing design problems. Our past studies of framing agency have relied on discourse analysis to characterize agency in talk [1-3]. However, this analytical approach, with its focus on talk, misses much about the materials in the design process, and given that design is commonly cast as a conversation with materials [4], a fuller understanding of framing agency could come from attention to material interactions. This study aimed to investigate a design setting in which materials played a consequential role, and to incorporate another analytic method to attend to the roles of materials in framing agency. Specifically, we examined ways learners negotiated their agency with materials in the context of an informal STEM camp focused on learning about the past, present, and future of radio frequency communications.
