Date & Time

1st presenter: Julia Koehler, Ph.D., Research Scientist & Project Leader, Systems Biology

Topic: How to give engaging presentations

Abstract: Communicating science is not easy but necessary to reach the right audience, get ideas on your projects and cross-pollinate ideas between disciplines. Communicating science at an engaging level leads to more fruitful collaborations with the right scientists, innovation, more funding and getting better jobs. I will give an overview on how to present your research in interesting and engaging ways.

2nd presenter: Pearson Miller, Ph.D., Flatiron Research Fellow, Developmental Dynamics

Topic: Geometry-guided intracellular symmetry breaking

Abstract: Cells come in all kinds of shapes, but most theoretical studies of intracellular signalling are limited to easy-to-solve geometries like spheres. We employ a new fast algorithm to systematically study a simple model for cell polarization over a wide range of geometries. From this lead, we derive a series of results illustrating how cell geometry guides protein localization and symmetry breaking
