In Hold Me Tight, Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread, Bergman Island) gives another riveting performance as Clarisse, a woman on the run from her family for reasons that aren’t immediately clear. Mathieu Amalric’s sixth feature as director is a virtuosic, daringly fluid portrait of a woman in crisis that alternates between Clarisse’s adventures on the road and scenes of her abandoned husband Marc (Arieh Worthalter) as he struggles to take care of their children at home. Amalric’s film keeps viewers uncertain as to the reality of what they’re seeing until the final moments of this moving, unpredictable, and richly rewarding family drama.

Physics Colloquium: Single sequence protein structure prediction
Wednesday, February 21, 2024 - 4:00 pm
Dr. Ratul Chowdhury, Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Iowa State University, will give a presentation titled "Single-sequence protein structure prediction and engineering of protein pores for separations."
Understanding protein structure involves being able to predict how a small change on an existing protein brings about large functional and structural changes. We are currently laying the groundwork for screening bio-awareness in computational modeling (both machine learning as well as non-machine learning-based) of proteins and their interactions. We aim to - (a) derive insight about protein function, (b) tune existing proteins for biochemical and pharmaceutical applications, and (c) point-of-care diagnostics.
