The Physics of Living Matter explores how the techniques, methods and general philosophy of the Physical Sciences can be applied to Biology. It is concerned with the structure and organization of biological systems and has the cell at its centre. From there, it extends both down to the molecular realm and upwards towards the tissue/organism level. At this years symposium the L Bragg Lecture will be given by Professor Xiaoliang Sunney Xie of Harvard University and other confirmed speakers include Professor Denis Noble, Professor Winfried Denk and Dr Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz. We will also celebrate the launch of the Physics of Medicine initiative of the Cavendish Laboratory and School of Clinical Medicine.
