Towards a Predictive Biology

19th January 2004 to 23rd January 2004

Organisers: Professor Tom McLeish (Leeds)

Conference Theme

This opening conference will take a long view of the increasingly multidisciplinary exploration of microscopic biological systems. The invited speakers are world-leading biologists, physicists and mathematicians whose background qualifies them to speak not only on current programmes of research, but also on the concepts and tools that we may be missing. Just how "predictive" could biology ever be? What is the relationship between biology, physics and mathematics as disciplines, and what might it become?
