Gordon Center

The annual Science@theInterface Symposium, organized by Professor Bozhi Tian, of the Institute for Biophysical Dynamics at The University of Chicago and held at Donnelley Biological Sciences Learning Center on UChicago's Hyde Park campus, highlights a frontier area of interdisciplinary research each year, with this year's theme being “Bioelectrics and Electroceuticals”. Our goal with these symposia is to focus on research at the interface between the biological and physical sciences, featuring leaders from the national and international scientific communities.

The day long meeting will feature 7 talks in two sessions, with a reception following in the BSLC Lobby
