**ABSTRACT DEADLINE 4 MARCH 2018**
We are delighted to invite you to join us for the BioDynamics conference 2018 at the beautifully located Royal College of Physicians, Regents Park, London on the 12th and 13th April 2018. BioDynamics is a thriving forum which brings together biologists, mathematicians, clinicians, physicists, and computer scientists who are interested in dynamics and networks in the biological and medical sciences.
Biodynamics 2018 confirmed keynote speakers:
How motoneurons work and what happens when they go wrong
Kerry Mills, King’s College London Molecular Mechanisms and Modelling of Diseases
Constitutional Dynamics of Prion Assemblies
Human Rezaei, French National Institute for Agricultural Research
Successful or unsuccessful interventions? The role of cortical oscillations
Roi Cohen Kadosh, University of Oxford
No stress without rhythm; the world of oscillating hormones
Stafford Lightman, University of Bristol
The snowflake conundrum: lessons in paediatric musculoskeletal biomechanics
Marco Viceconti, University of Sheffield
Biodynamics 2018 Themes:
Molecular Mechanisms and Modelling of Diseases
Neural Oscillations in health and Disease
Stress and the Brain
Patient Specific Modelling
About BioDynamics 2018
Dynamic phenomena are ubiquitous in biological systems and span multiple, interacting spatiotemporal scales. There is growing appreciation that quantifying them accurately will lead to deeper insights into human disease and even inspire novel therapies – but doing so is challenging, and will likely need innovative cross-disciplinary approaches and tools. We will showcase some of the very best cross-disciplinary research in this rapidly expanding field, with a focus on how the study of biological dynamics, and the mechanistic understanding it provides, can be used for clinical translation and patient-specific therapeutics. Talks will range from microscopic scales – how molecular dynamics influence disease phenotypes – to macroscopic scales – how neural, humoral and cardiovascular dynamics affect human health and disease.
This year the meeting will be organised by colleagues from King’s College London and will be held on the 12th & 13th April 2018 at the Royal College of Physicians. This wonderful venue is in the heart of London, overlooking Regent’s park.
