NOISE & RHYTHM: Harnessing Complexity in Medicine and Robotics, June 8, 2012
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. To register, go to: http://wyss.harvard.edu/noise_rhythm
About the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University
The Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University (http://wyss.harvard.edu) uses Nature’s design principles to develop bioinspired materials and devices that will transform medicine and create a more sustainable world. Working as an alliance among Harvard’s Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Arts & Sciences, and in partnership with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital Boston, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Massachusetts General Hospital, the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, and Boston University, the Institute crosses disciplinary and institutional barriers to engage in high-risk research that leads to transformative technological breakthroughs. By emulating Nature’s principles for self-organizing and self-regulating, Wyss researchers are developing innovative new engineering solutions for healthcare, energy, architecture, robotics, and manufacturing. These technologies are translated into commercial products and therapies through collaborations with clinical investigators, corporate alliances, and new start-ups.
