  • Complexity in Medicine and Robotics, June 8th

    To all investigators interested in how new advances in complexity, dynamical control, and self-organization are beginning to transform medicine and robotics:

    We are pleased to invite you to register for the Wyss Institute symposium titled, Noise & Rhythm: Harnessing Complexity in Medicine and Robotics, that will be convened by the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University.

    Date: Friday, June 8, 2012
    Time: 8:15 am – 6:30 pm
    Location: Joseph B. Martin Conference Center, Amphitheater
    Harvard Medical School, 77 Avenue Louis Pasteur, Boston, MA 02115

    Our third annual international symposium will focus on research and technology development based on non-linear dynamical systems and self-organizing behavior that are beginning to transform the fields of medicine and robotics. The day will include a keynote presentation by Robert Full from the University of California, Berkeley, on the future of this dynamic field. This event is organized by Wyss Institute Core Faculty Members James Collins, Ary Goldberger, Donald Ingber, Radhika Nagpal, Conor Walsh, and Robert Wood.

    There is no fee to attend this symposium, however, registration is required.
