A summer school for advanced undergraduates
June 11-22, 2018 @ Princeton University
What would it mean to have a physicist’s understanding of life?
How do DYNAMICS and the EMERGENCE of ORDER affect biological function?
How do organisms process INFORMATION, LEARN, ADAPT, and EVOLVE?
See how physics problems emerge from thinking about developing embryos, communicating bacteria, dynamic neural networks, animal behaviors, evolution, and more.
Learn how ideas and methods from statistical physics, simulation and data analysis, optics and microscopy connect to diverse biological phenomena.
Explore these questions, tools, and concepts in an intense two weeks of lectures, seminars, hands-on exercises, and projects.
