2024 Science@theInterface Symposium

Physics of Evolution Symposium

Living systems are built from physical components but must arise through a process of mutation and selection that puts constraints on their design and function. The Institute for Biophysical Dynamics and the Center for the Physics of Evolving System jointly sponsor our 2024 Symposium bringing together world leaders in studying this interface between physics and evolution as it applies to proteins, virology, cell biology, and developmental biology. This all-day symposium includes a poster session showcasing research in these areas as well as lunch and a reception including in-person discussion with the speakers.
