Program - Coupling Geometric PDEs with Physics for Cell Morphology, Motility and Pattern Formation

13th July 2015   -   18th December 2015
Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences,, United Kingdom


The aim of this six-month research programme is to create a unique forum to strengthen and develop research links between state-of-the-art experimental 'wet' sciences (biology, medicine, bio-physics) and theoretical 'dry' sciences (pure, applied and computational mathematics, theoretical physics, statistics). In this programme we will discuss and present in a hands-on format current experimental methodology for cell motility and pattern formation. We will emphasise interactions between experimentalists and theoreticians, with the dual goals of understanding how current mathematical techniques from physics, differential geometry, mathematical modelling and numerical analysis can help to understand current problems in the areas of cell motility and pattern formation, and what new mathematical techniques may emerge in the process. Several workshops will take place during the programme. For full details please see
