Synopsis

Wireless Technology Waves and Its Applications ...Riding the Wave....

Due to huge demand for more connections and data use worldwide, mobile communication standards advanced rapidly to support the world needs. The emergence of 5G, has been in the news lately because the world hunger of the high speed and connectivity of anything anywhere to anything anytime. 3G brought the internet everywhere and 4G LTE made it faster, 5G NR is meant to boost both the capacity and speed, bringing the livestreams without delay. One of the ways 5G will enable this is by tapping into new, unused bands at the top of the radio spectrum. These high bands are known as millimeter waves (mmwaves). Later versions of 5G will also allow things like IoT devices to connect to mmwaves, VLC, as well as allow for use of unlicensed spectrum to increase speeds some more. 5G and beyond is intended to impact every industry, every service provider, and every person on the planet. 5G stretches the spectrum, device and network technology. The aim of this seminar is to present the technologies and challenges for 5G and beyond and discuss the potential future research directions.

Synopsis

Combinatorial Chemistry and Drug Discovery

The last two decades has witnessed major breakthroughs in the identification of genes, gene products, metabolic pathways, and signaling pathways, as well as progress in miniaturization and robotics, enabling the development of high-throughput mechanism-based biological assays. One of the central objectives of organic and medicinal chemistry is the design, synthesis, and production of molecules having value as human therapeutic agents. Our research group is interested in the design, synthesis, analysis, conformations, dynamics and structure-biological activity relationships of diverse nitrogen heterocycles of different ring sizes. Diaza- and triaza-cyclic compounds with different substitution patterns and embedded in various molecular frameworks constitute important structure classes in the search for bioactivity. The compounds are designed to follow known drug-likeness rules including “Lipinski’s Rule of Five”. Examples of the identification of highly active compounds from mixture based libraries will be presented.

Synopsis

Why Diversity Matters

Diversity is a term that has a positive meaning and, above all, and a positive impact. It represents all available possibilities and opportunities. Its exact interpretation may vary according to context in which it is used, but there is no doubt about the benefits it has. When we make good use of diversity in any environment, we improve our chances of achieving our goals and tackling different challenges. For example, crop diversity helps scientists to breed crops that are better adapted to conditions ranging from water scarcity to climate change. This is important as these problems are undermining global food security. Diversity, and more specifically gender equality, in the workplace is also important. By ensuring inclusion and equal opportunity, we increase productivity and growth. This is specifically important in a scientific context where there are not enough women researchers. Some studies show that women are better leaders and innovators. So not tapping into this potential is a lost opportunity. Therefore, we need to cherish and encourage diversity everywhere.

Synopsis

On the Theory of Everything

String theory is one of the brightest ideas of the physics of the early 21st century. Commonly known as the theory of everything, it is based on the existence of new extended physical objects (branes) encompassing the elementary particles we know. It predicts a space-time with several dimensions beyond the three spatial directions that we see in our classical world. In this theory, the four independent fundamental forces - strong, electromagnetic, weak and gravitational - fit into the same framework; it solves one of the basic problem of physics on why four different forces to govern the evolution of universe, pushes the limit of knowledge of humanity and opens the window on the quest of new horizons. In this presentation, I review basic ideas of this theory, comment the role of symmetries in this building and describe some of its predictions.
