Special mini-symposium on “Ecological systems biology of microbes”. Wednesday, February 28, 2018
We are excited to invite you to a special mini-symposium on “Ecological systems biology of microbes” hosted by the Lokey Center Distinguished Lecture Series.
Date: Wednesday, February 28, 2018
Venue: Faculty of Biology, Auditorium
The mini-symposium will be featuring Prof. Jeff Gore (MIT) and Prof. Michael Springer (Harvard) – two exceptional scientists who bridge across fields in their quest for understanding of biology from individual cell behavior to whole community.
Prof. Jeff Gore is an Associate Professor of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has wide-ranging research interests, from ecological dynamics to single-molecule research. His biophysics laboratory uses microbial populations to experimentally probe fundamental ideas in theoretical ecology and evolutionary systems biology. Jeff is highly recognized for innovative science bridging from physics and math to biology.
Prof. Michael Springer is an Associate Professor of Systems Biology at Harvard University. His lab investigates how cells compute decisions based on their environment, with a particular interest in the constraints on signaling imposed by conflicting goals, multiple inputs, physical constraints, and evolutionary history. He beautifully combines quantitative measurements and modeling with technology driven biology.
We most highly recommend attending this mini-symposium. For more details please see the attached poster
