Mechanics in Morphogenesis
21-23 February 2018
Program Organizers: Andrej Košmrlj (Princeton, MAE) Celeste Nelson, Princeton, CBE) Stas Shvartsman (Princeton, CBE) Lisa Manning (Syracuse, Physics)
Morphological shapes of biological tissues and structures have inspired a plethora of scientists throughout history and in 2017 we are celebrating the 100-th anniversary of D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson’s influential book titled “On Growth and Form”. Many recent activities have focused on understanding how biology has devised elaborate strategies for regulating pattern formation and mechanical forces in both space and time. Morphogenesis has also inspired scientists to design shape-programmable stimuli-responsive matter. This workshop aims at bringing together researchers from diverse backgrounds to forge new interdisciplinary connections.
Registration has reached full capacity and is now closed.
The Meeting will be Live Streamed and can be viewed here.
