Single-Cell Biophysics: Measurement, Modulation, and Modeling
June 17 - 20, 2017
Biophysical studies in individual living cells enable a quantitative understanding of the structures and dynamics of macromolecules and cellular processes in their own physiological context. This is a grand challenge in biophysics as the complexity of a single cell is multi-scale both in time and space. Addressing this challenge requires the concerted effort of biologists, physicists, chemists, and bioengineers. The goal of this meeting is to bring together scientists and engineers to discuss current and future experimental, computational, and theoretical advances in the field of single cell biophysics. Topics will include advances in single-molecule, single-cell, and tissue imaging, dynamics and spatial organizations of cellular structures and processes, responses of cells to three-dimensional microenvironments, new experimental and computational methods for single cell analyses, and the interaction of cells with materials.
