banner

Unfortunately due to the global outbreak of Covid-19 we have been forced to postpone to 2021.

WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE OUR NEW DATE!!!!

18 June 2021 - University of Warwick

The Warwick-Wellcome Quantitative Biomedicine Programme is pleased to be hosting its 6th annual symposium. This year, the theme is Multiscale Force Sensing and Transduction in Biology, which will explore the role of mechanical forces in development acting on multiple scales from molecules up to organisms. The symposium is a free one-day event that will bring together renowned scientists working on a broad range of topics at the interface of biology, physics, mathematics and bio-chemistry.

The themes of the symposium will focus on cross-disciplinary work to address fundamental questions in developmental biology.
