Friday Forum: Understanding and Practicing Effective Peer Review
9:00 AM - 9:50 AM

Understanding and Practicing Effective Peer Review

Elissa S. Guralnick, Professor Emerita, College of Music

Nearly every academic discipline is based on peer review of original research, and yet few are ever taught how to write or respond to such reviews. Narrowly defined, a peer review is an expert’s assessment of a manuscript submitted to a scholarly journal or a press for publication. You can start to learn now how to give a meaningful peer review. Equally important, you can learn now how to respond effectively and efficiently to such reviews, helping you to become not only a better reader of other people’s scholarship, but also a better scholar and writer yourself.

Graduate Seminar: Victoria A. Piunova
9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Advanced Polymeric Architectures for Biomedical and Sensing Applications

Victoria A. Piunova

Technical Project Leader, IBM Almaden Research Center

Friday, Feb 24th

9:30 -10:30 am

ME department conference rooms


The first part of this presentation will discuss the design and synthesis of gel-core star polymers as drug delivery vehicles and antimicrobial agents. Well-defined, multi-armed star polymers have been prepared by an “arm first” synthetic approach. Strategies to introduce core and/or peripheral functionality into the gel-core star polymers have been taken to tailor the properties of the carriers. A combination of molecular simulations and experimental results provides insight into the mechanism of star polymer formation.

The second part of this presentation will focus on the synthesis and self-assembly of dendronized block-copolymers to responsive photonic crystals for sensing applications. 


Dr. Victoria Piunova is a research staff member at IBM Almaden Research Center. She earned her Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Southern California conducted post-doctoral studies at the California Institute of Technology. Dr. Piunova’s current research interests are focused on the development of materials for biomedical applications and sensing.

ICS Colloquium - Keith Lohse

Title: Streamlining Clinical Science with Structured Data Archives: Data-Driven Insights from the Stroke Rehabilitation Literature.
Abstract: Significant recent advances in bibliometrics have focused on how to utilize text mining approaches to organize a scientific discipline based on author networks, keywords and/or references cited. While these approaches can provide very useful insights, they fail to capture important experimental data that are embedded within many scientific disciplines. A major objective of my work is to examine how experimental data can be used to organize the literature within a discipline and identify its key gaps. This approach is especially important to disciplines that rely heavily on randomized control trials (RCTs), as many of these studies have similar information architecture with common data elements (CDEs) acquired at similar times. Using stroke rehabilitation as an informative example, I will present a massively systematic review of the literature: the Centralized Open-Access Rehabilitation database for Stroke (SCOAR).  Using SCOAR as an example, I will show how primary research can be supplemented by meta-scientific research, informatics, and interactive data-visualization. These tools highlight sources of systematic variability in the outcomes of medical interventions and, in turn, provide insights to practitioners and identify opportunities for future research. I hope to make this talk exciting for a broad audience as the meta-scientific approach is fruitful for anyone pursuing experimental work, and medical informatics draws on numerous ICS disciplines from information science (for ontology), to neuroscience (for the subject matter), to computer science (for our interactive visualizations).

All colloquia take place on Friday from 12:00 to 2:00 pm (unless otherwise noted) in Room D428 and D430 on the fourth floor of the Muenzinger Psychology Building.

If you have questions, please call the ICS Office at 303-492-5063.

APPM Department Colloquium - Mevin Hooten
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Mevin Hooten, Department of Statistics, Colorado State University

De Motu Animalium:  Modern Models for Animal Trajectories 
Advances in animal telemetry data collection techniques have served as a catalyst for the creation of statistical methodology for analyzing animal movement data.  Such data and methodology have provided a wealth of information about animal space use and the investigation of individual-based animal-environment relationships.  While the technology for data collection is improving dramatically over time, we are left with massive archives of historical animal telemetry data of varying quality.  However, many contemporary statistical approaches for inferring movement behavior are designed for newer data that are very accurate and high-resolution.  From a scientific perspective, the behaviors we are interested in learning about may be complicated, nonstationary, and constrained.  Furthermore, telemetry data often contain substantial measurement error and can be nonelliptically distributed.  I provide a brief overview of the history of statistical models for animal movement and present an accessible framework for accommodating the inherent characteristics of Lagrangian movement processes and uncertainty associated with telemetry data.

Event Image David Korevaar Distinguished Research Lecture
4:00 PM - 5:45 PM

"The Score is Alive...With the Sound of Music", the 109th Distinguished Research Lecturer David Korevaar

The Distinguished Research Lectureship is among the highest honors bestowed by the faculty on a faculty member at CU Boulder. Each year, the Research & Innovation Office requests nominations from faculty for this award, and a faculty review panel recommends one faculty member as a recipient. 2016 honorees are David Korevaar (Music) and Thomas T. Veblen (Geography).

David Korevaar began his piano studies at age six in San Diego with Sherman Storr, and at age 13 he became a student of the great American virtuoso Earl Wild. By age 20 he had earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Juilliard School, where he continued his studies with Earl Wild and studied composition with David Diamond. He completed his Doctor of Musical Arts from the Juilliard School with Abbey Simon. Another important mentor and teacher was the French pianist Paul Doguereau, who had been a student of Egon Petri, and who had studied the music of Fauré and Debussy with Roger-Ducasse (a pupil of Fauré’s), and the music of Ravel with the composer.
