from October 28, 2010 to November 8, 2010 (Asia/Kolkata)
Asia/Kolkata timezone
A program of the International Centre of Theoretical Sciences (ICTS) of TIFR, this school will focus on mechanically driven living systems. How living systems generate, sense and transduce mechanical stimuli (such as forces, flows and fluctuations which can have remarkable influences on the properties of molecules, cells, tissues and organs), and what consequences these have for development and disease are questions that are intrinsically interdisciplinary and have captured the interests not just of biologists but also engineers, mathematicians and theoretical physicists. The school will bring together leading researchers engaged in understanding the active mechanical principles regulating an amazing diversity of biological systems over a variety of length scales using experimental and theoretical interdisciplinary approaches. More details about the school can be found at We look forward to your participation. The Organisers (Alexander Bershadsky, Maithreyi Narasimha, Sriram Ramaswamy, Madan Rao and GV Shivashankar)
