The Sverdrup Visiting Scientist Program welcomes Dr. Jennifer L. Ross, Professor and Physics Department Chair at Syracuse University, who will present The Future is Alive! Physics Lessons from Biology as part of the ongoing Sverdrup lecture series.
Tuesday, April 12, 11:00 – 12:00pm
Hoversten Chapel, Foss Center
Imagine a world where potholes in roads seal themselves like cuts in your skin, your body reports directly to your doctor on pain and medication, and we can explore and inhabit other planets using pre-fabricated houses that build themselves. To reach these dreams, we must understand the physics behind biology that can already perform such exciting activities. In this talk, we will explore how the skeleton of the cell is able to arrange itself and how enzymes could move faster than expected when they perform their chemical reaction.
Please note the convocation schedule for adjusted class times on this day.
