McGill's Seminar Series in Quantitative Life Sciences and Medicine
Sponsored by CAMBAM, QLS, MiCM and the Ludmer Centre
Title: Biology, Mathematics & Physics: Interactions and Interdependence
Speaker: Michael Mackey, McGill University
When: Tuesday, November 19, 12-1pm
Where: McIntyre Medical Building, room 1034
Abstract: Biologists, mathematicians, and physicists tend to be generally ignorant of the rich connections between their disciplines—connections that have been in existence for decades if not centuries. In this non-technical talk, I will trace some of these threads and discuss how they are even now being extended in the new areas of biological research of the 21st century.
