From Physics to Function
09 Oct 2022 - 12 Oct 2022 • Buxted Park, East Sussex, United Kingdom
Organizer:
The Company of Biologists Ltd
Abstract:
With the increased appreciation that physical forces are key regulators of all biological processes, new emerging scientific communities are forming around topics such as physical forces in cancer and mechanobiology in different biological processes ranging from development to homeostasis. Currently, there exists somewhat of a void between the biologists and the physicists working on these topics. The interests are shared but the communication between the two crowds is limited by the lack of a common language. On one hand, there are vast advances being made in generating tuneable materials, versatile biomimetic polymers and artificial 3D scaffolds, and these are linked to advanced modelling and understanding of the physical parameters of these systems. However, the biological questions addressed may have limited physiological relevance and lack careful consideration of the burning questions in biology. On the other side, the cell biologists/developmental biologists/cancer biologists lack contact with the physicists, modellers and material scientists, and are unable to connect their biology to the relevant physical principles and available methodology. They lack understanding of the theory behind tissue mechanics and the engineering skills to investigate them. They would benefit massively from closer collaboration with the “other crowd”. Therefore, the main goal of this Workshop is to foster integration between physics and biology across scales, approaches, and participant backgrounds. The Workshop will be entail “biology-physics duets” – talks given jointly by two currently collaborating speakers, with different backgrounds. These will be accompanied by “solo” talks and relevant round table discussions on how physics and biology can be better integrated.
Topics:
1) Mechanotransduction from cell adhesions to the nucleus 2) Cytoskeleton mechanics and migration 3) Modelling of biological processes across scales 4) Top-down versus bottom-up approaches to living systems 5) How to promote cross-disciplinary research on biologically relevant questions

Gordon Research Seminar — Stochastic Physics in Biology
14 Jan 2023 - 15 Jan 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
As an interdisciplinary field of study, research that aims to understand multiscale cellular processes is characterized by a diversity of approaches: theory, models, and biological experiments. This range of disciplines and approaches often employ different techniques, perspectives, and “languages” to describe similar ideas, which can be confusing even for seasoned experts. As such, trainees studying multiscale cellular processes must understand diverse perspectives and learn to communicate outside of their own expertise. At this GRS, trainees will have the opportunity to present and learn from their peers who are learning to navigate this rapidly-changing field and will shape its future. The GRS centers discussion and engagement among trainees to foster conversation and collaboration.
Topics:
Multiscale Processes of Cellular Organization

Gordon Research Conference — Stochastic Physics in Biology
15 Jan 2023 - 20 Jan 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
At the most fundamental level, physical and chemical laws govern the operations of a living cell. For example, the energetics of a biochemical reaction obey the law of thermodynamics, and the kinetics the law of mass action. At the functional level, however, when, where and at what rate a biomolecule executes its function through its binding to a partner or enzymatic catalysis is stochastic, and can only be described in probabilistic instead of deterministic terms. At this level, the integration between experiments and theories becomes extremely important, because new theories need to be developed to explain stochastic experimental observations and guide further experimental explorations, and experiments need to be conducted to test theoretical predications and establish biological significance.

Gordon Research Conference — Physical Virology
22 Jan 2023 - 27 Jan 2023 • Lucca (Barga), LU, Italy
Abstract:
At the global level, viral epidemiology depends on modes of transmission and social networks; at the cellular level viruses repurpose protein interaction networks and remodel cellular compartments; on the local level the assembly and disassembly of a virus is governed by (and reveals) physical principles. Viruses also bridge multiple scientific disciplines. In biomedicine, understanding viral lifecycles provides essential information for developing antiviral agents that block infection. In more fundamental sciences, viruses are ideal model systems for studying mechanisms underlying self-assembly, genome packaging and release, allostery, membrane dynamics, and the efficient passage of nanoscale particles through membranes. The COVID-19 pandemic highlights the need for these cross-disciplinary approaches to understand viral biology, predict their global spread in impact, and develop new treatments. In addition to advancing antiviral strategies and cell biology, the knowledge acquired from these studies and the viral particles themselves are enabling researchers to engineer virus-based platforms for biomedical and nanomaterials applications, such as gene delivery or optoelectronics. This natural diversity requires collaborative efforts of researchers with a wide range of expertise.

Gordon Research Conference — Complex Active and Adaptive Material Systems
29 Jan 2023 - 03 Feb 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
The 2023 conference will bring together a cross-disciplinary community of researchers from academia and industry, with the common aim of exploiting the complexity of non-equilibrium processes and architecture material systems to forge a new generation of compliant machines that can adapt to their environment. Together physicists, chemists, computer scientists, and engineers at the forefront of materials science, data science, and process dynamics will discuss novel routes for capitalizing on the vast design space afforded by the synergy between soft materials, non-equilibrium processes, and structural design across nano- to macro-scopic length scales. By re-examining what is conventionally considered a material, a machine or information, we will exchange perspectives on employing advanced materials, theory, modeling, and manufacturing to the creation of compliant material systems that process information, self-regulate, act on their environment, adapt shape, and harvest energy so as to revolutionize next generation of soft robotics, environmental sensors, smart structures, adaptive surfaces, etc. The aim of our GRC is to convene this diverse group of people to generate ideas to bridge interdisciplinary boundaries and to establish an innovative community at the forefront complex active and adaptive material system research.

Gordon Research Conference — Physical Science of Cancer
05 Feb 2023 - 10 Feb 2023 • Galveston, TX, United States
Abstract:
Cancer is a disease that affects individual molecules, cells, tissues, organs, and organisms in ways that promote disease. Ultimately, the dynamic interactions among these systems shape the forces that drive tumor initiation, progression, metastatic spread, and disease recurrence. The application of physics and mathematics foundations to the molecular, cellular, tissue, and organ level basis of cancer has revealed fundamental changes during disease that are reflected across cancer types and stages. In this conference we will hear from experts applying physical sciences to cancer to study disease phenomena across scales and systems.

Engineering Life: Unifying concepts from system chemistry, biophysics and theoretical physics
13 Mar 2023 - 24 Mar 2023 • Munich, Germany
Organizer:
MIAPbP - Munich Institute for Astro-, Particle and BioPhysics
Abstract:
Life, as we know it today, is characterized by a set of biophysical properties that include the ability to grow, divide and replicate, and evolve in complexity via selection and distinction. From a chemical perspective, such processes are realized by chemical reactions and assembly processes that turnover reactants, and this turnover is driven by the supply of mass and energy. From a theoretical perspective, this supply maintains the system away from thermodynamic equilibrium leading to continuous fluxes of energy and mass, even in the stationary state of the system. To engineer living systems or specific life-like processes, unified approaches are necessary that incorporate concepts from biophysics, system chemistry, and theoretical physics. This workshop aims to bring together scientists from these three fields to discuss the current challenges to engineering life-like processes. The workshop will provide a collaborative environment that includes plenary talks on the question “What is life?” and the related challenges to engineering it. Moreover, there will be sessions with interactive short talks and brainstorming sessions with plenty of time to freely gather and develop novel approaches to how to engineer life.

MORPHO23 — Dynamics of Self-Organization in Animal and Plant Development
24 Jul 2023 - 25 Aug 2023 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of California, Santa Barbara
Abstract:
During animal and plant development, cells self-organize into complex organisms, through the gradual refinement of cellular identities and their arrangement in space. This is an iterative process, which progresses through successive rounds of symmetry breaking, accompanied by changes in molecular and mechanical properties that feed back across multiple scales. Many of the elementary processes underlying developmental patterning and morphogenesis are now well documented, and a growing array of tools is available to observe and manipulate their dynamics. Yet, we lack a set of general principles that explain how they are coordinated in space and time to produce a defined outcome, and comprehensive synthetic approaches that use such principles to recapitulate development in vitro. This program will bring together experimentalists and theoreticians to work towards an integrated view of self-organization. This requires that we examine how the collective dynamics of development emerge from individual cellular behaviors - how cellular decisions in high-dimensional gene expression landscapes are coordinated in patterning, and how cellular force generation and mechanical feedbacks provide a substrate for tissue-scale communication and morphogenesis. Unifying these different processes, the notion of information may provide a common currency for the molecular and mechanical cues that guide development, encouraging us to consider that information is not only conveyed and interpreted but also self-organizes.

morphogenesis, development, plant development, self-organization, theory, quantitative biology, biophysics

BIRS Workshop — Mathematical Methods for Exploring and Analyzing Morphological Shapes across Biological Scales
03 Sep 2023 - 08 Sep 2023 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Abstract:
The advances in imaging techniques have enabled the access to 3D shapes present in a variety of biological structures: organs, cells, organelles, and proteins. Since biological shapes are related to physiological functions, biomedical analyses are poised to incorporate more morphological data. For example, at the macroscopic scale, characterizing brain morphologies allows clinicians to quantify the progression of Alzheimer's disease. At the microscopic scale, the characterization of protein morphologies allows biologists to understand how these biomolecules react to chemical variations of their environment and helps detect promising pharmacological targets for the treatment of conditions ranging from neurological disorders to several cancers. Therefore, different biological scales ask a common statistical question: how can we build mathematical and statistical descriptions of biological morphologies and their variations? This workshop invites participants from different application fields to exchange mathematical and statistical methods for the study of biological shapes.

BIRS Workshop — Mechanics of Cells and Polymer Networks: Bridging Theory, Simulation and Experiment
10 Sep 2023 - 15 Sep 2023 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Abstract:
The interface between biology and quantitative disciplines including physics, mathematics and engineering is rapidly expanding. This is the result of many factors, but is largely driven by higher resolution spatial and temporal data from cutting edge imaging techniques, and increasing success in applying physical modeling techniques to biological problems. Mechanobiology is an especially rapidly developing field at the quantitative biology interface. This field describes how force is generated in biological systems, how force impacts chemistry, and how force generation is controlled by intracellular signaling pathways. Numerous feedforward and feedback interactions connect forces in cells to the dynamics of proteins and gene expression, resulting in highly nonlinear systems with complex and often non-intuitive behaviours.
