BioDynamics 2013

Sep 11 2013 - 12:00
Sep 13 2013 - 15:30
Venue: 

Engineers' House, Bristol, UK

Short description of the event: 

Rhythms in biological systems – the theme for our first in a series of annual international workshops designed to bring together biologists, mathematicians, clinicians, physicists, and computer scientists who are interested in dynamical systems in the biological and medical sciences.

These workshops will provide a unique forum for multidisciplinary interactions, which we hope will lead to rewarding collaborations between theoretical, experimental, and clinical scientists. This promises to provide an exciting opportunity for scientists to present their data in a multidisciplinary forum and hear how collaborations between biological scientists, clinicians and mathematicians can provide major conceptual advances in our understanding of complex systems.

Sessions focusing on very slow rhythms, circadian rhythms, ultradian rhythms, and very fast rhythms.
Areas covered will include basic and clinical neuroscience, endocrinology and cardiovascular science
World-leading scientists will deliver keynote presentations on cutting-edge current research and important future challenges within their field.

Confirmed keynote speakers include
Professor Russell Foster, University of Oxford, UK;
Dr Michael Hastings, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UK;
Professor David Hazlerigg, University of Aberdeen, UK;
Professor Allan Herbison, University of Otago Centre for Neuroendocrinology, New Zealand;
Professor Kevin O’Byrne, King’s College, London, UK;
Professor David Rand, University of Warwick, UK;
Professor James Sneyd, University of Auckland, New Zealand.

Abstracts are invited for both oral and poster presentation. Deadline for abstracts is Friday 26 April 2013.
