Physics press conferences at next week's American Physical Society March Meeting
Date:3/17/2010

uid dynamicists and biomechanicians study the nature of this active soft material and the role it plays in processes ranging from the metastatic migration of cancer cells to the development of atherosclerosis.

A new controversy has arisen recently over how protein assemblies known as "molecular motors" in this fluid give rise to certain mechanical properties of cells -- such as shape and motility. Recent theories in the field suggest that molecular motors play a crucial role in determining these properties. New experimental data in live cells suggests they do not. In Session L6, scientists from both camps will debate the evidence and discuss the possible design of future drugs that modulate the mechanical properties of the cytoskeleton by regulating the activation of these motors.

SPEAKERS: Alex Levine (University of California, Los Angeles), Mohammad Mofrad (University of California, Berkeley), Muhammad H. Zaman (Boston University), Dennis Wirtz (Johns Hopkins University), and Juan C. del Alamo (University of California, San Diego).

THIN FILM ORGANIC ELECTRONICS (Session L29, L17)

The emerging field of organic electronics promises a future of electronic components composed of relatively inexpensive polymers (essentially, plastics) rather than the traditional silicon. This offers the potential for making low cost LED lighting, digital displays and solar cells as well as enabling futuristic electronic devices such as see-through cell phones or flexible computer monitors. How soon consumers will realize these novel applications depends in part on how well physicists, chemists, and material scientists can learn to control and fine tune the properties of organic electronics. This press conference will focus on the develop
