From the transistors in your cell phone to the expansion of the universe, physics provides precise mathematical description of nature, but where are we in this story? Can we imagine a physics of life? Join leading scientists for a discussion on the interaction between physics and biology. Featuring: William Bialek, visiting presidential professor of physics at the GC and professor at Princeton; Mala Murthy, associate professor of neuroscience and molecular biology at Princeton; David Schwab, assistant professor of biology and physics at the GC; and Eric Wieschaus, professor at Princeton and winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
Presented with the Center for the Physics of Biological Function, a joint effort between the Graduate Center and Princeton University.
