UCL Institute for the Physics of Living Systems Annual Symposium 2021
25 May 2021, 8:45 am–5:00 pm
The Institute for the Physics of Living Systems (IPLS) Annual Symposium will showcase the exciting interdisciplinary research performed by IPLS researchers and our collaborators. Our Inaugural Symposium will take place on 25 May 2021 as a one-day online event.
This event is free.
Our goal in organising this symposium is to showcase the depth and breadth of research at the interface between physics, mathematics, computer science, and biology in UCL. We aim to spur new collaborations within UCL and across London by presenting new interdisciplinary approaches to tackle complex biological questions.
Registration for this event is free but it is mandatory.
Please register by 23rd May to receive the link to join the Symposium.
