  2. Science guest lecture: Where physics meets biology: an introduction to current research on the application of biophysics to embryology

    Evening
    Course Date: Thu 30 Jan 2020
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    It is an ongoing mystery how the complexity of an adult organism arises from a single fertilised egg cell. This problem has been studied extensively by biologists for centuries, and is now an active area of research for physicists as well. The field of biophysics aims to use the mathematical and computational tools of physics to understand how complex living creatures organise themselves. The key idea is that even something as complicated as a whole organism must still obey the laws of physics . In this talk, Max Kerr Winter will discuss various ways in which physics and biology come together. He will focus on his work studying how forces are distributed and organised in the early mouse embryo, in order for the embryo to grow into the correct shape. What insights can this research give us into the development of human embryos?



    Max Kerr Winter is a theoretical biophysicist. He researches at the Francis Crick Institute, London, in collaboration with experimental biologists at the University of Cambridge.
