Physics of Life 2018: Molecules, Mechanics, Medicine and More!

Monday 10 December 2018, 9.00AM to 3pm

This one day meeting will showcase Physics of Life topics that have been covered during the Physics of Life Network (PoLNET2). Topics covered include expert speakers in the areas of the Physics of Cancer, Animal Health, Evolution, Multi scale Mechanics, Bio computation, epigenetics and AMR. This will be a great opportunity for York researchers to engage with this UK-wide network, and there will be valuable chances to discuss plans for 2019 and community sustainability beyond, as well as exciting funding possibilities.
