Exploring the links between geometry, biology, physics and materials science

Experimental and theoretical evidence indicate that surface curvature plays a role on the behaviour of living objects ranging from cell membranes to single cells to tissues and organs. Following up from our first meeting (6th - 8th Feb 2019), we are currently in the planning stage for the next CurvoBio conference.

 

This will be held from the 7nd to the 9th of April 2021 as an online format. 

We intend to bring together a broad range of scientists interested in exploring the role of geometry on different biological phenomena in Nature. We are looking for participation from a wide range of disciplines ranging from biologists who explore systems in which curvature changes or plays a role in biological processes, to materials scientists who can make and design static and dynamically curved substrates, to mathematicians who can help describe such substrates, and to help understand the implications of geometry on processes on curved surfaces, and physicists who can understand and help model idealised biophysical processes under geometric constraints.

Preliminary Programm

A series of pre-recorded educational lectures covering mathematical, biological and computational basics will be provided before the conference to all registered participants.
