Summer School

The Physics of Life - June 10-21, 2019 @ Princeton University

The Center for the Physics of Biological Function is pleased to offer a summer school for advanced undergraduates who are interested in biological physics. The 2019 school is limited to 24 students, and is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The school is an intense two weeks of lectures, seminars, and hands-on exercises with two ultimate goals for students:

  1. To build an understanding of how physics problems emerge from thinking about developing embryos, communicating bacteria, dynamic neural networks, animal behaviors, evolution, and more.
  2. To learn how ideas and methods from statistical physics, simulation, data analysis, and imaging connect to diverse biological phenomena.
