Jasmin Fisher  Microsoft Research Cambridge, UK  Department of Biochemistry, Centre of Systems Biology, Cambridge University, UK 

  Trained as an experimental biologist in Physiology and  Biophysics, later as a Neuroimmunologist working on  the interface between injured central nervous system  and immune cells at the Weizmann Institute of Science; I was transformed by living among computer scientists  to become what is commonly known today as a Systems  Biologist (or a Computational Biologist). Here I have embarked on a mission to help decipher biological  complexity on various levels (e.g., signal  transduction, cell‐cell communication) using  executable models and formal verification methods. Our work is mainly focused on cellular decision‐ making processes during normal development and disease (e.g., cancer). This talk will be about the new  science we call Executable Biology, its premises and  challenges, but also about a woman, scientist, mother; mingled together to form the whole.
