Summer School ‘Nicolas Cabrera’: “The Physics of Biological Systems: from Biomolecular Nanomachines"

Miraflores de la Sierra, Madrid, 10-15 July 2016

The goal of this Summer School is to explore how physical concepts and tools expand our understanding of the complex functions and organization of living systems. By bringing together leading scientists who work at the interface of both disciplines, the School will offer a comprehensive view of some of the more interesting open problems in Biology and how they can be approached (and experimentally tested) from a physics perspective.

The School is aimed at an interdisciplinary audience (biologists, physicists, mathematicians and engineers) interested in the quantitative description of biological phenomena.
