Interdisciplinary approaches to dynamics in biology

Scientific meeting

Location

Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, MK16 9JJ

Overview

This meeting will bring together an interdisciplinary group of scientists interested in the timing of biological processes. Biology is dynamic at every scale, from transcription in a single cell to evolution. Increasingly, technological advances allow us to temporally quantify biological processes. The challenge we now face, which this meeting will address, is to extract mechanistic understanding from the dynamics we measure.

The full schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available below shortly. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.

Poster session

There will be a poster session at 5pm on Monday 24 February. If you would like to apply to present a poster, please submit your title, your abstract (no more than 200 words and in third person), author list, name of the proposed presenter and authors' institutions to the Scientific Programmes team no later than Friday 10 January 2020. Please include the text 'Dynamics in Biology: poster abstract' in the subject heading. Please note that places are limited and are selected at the scientific organisers' discretion. Poster abstracts will only be considered if the proposed presenter is registered to attend the meeting.
