Multiscale Force Sensing and Transduction in Biology


17 and 18 June 2021 - University of Warwick

Virtual Symposium

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 two-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.
