Cell biology is currently undergoing an historic transition from a qualitative to a quantitative science. For the past two decades, computational modeling has played a pivotal role in this transition, and now, interdisciplinary collaborations combining both in silico and in vivo components are the gold standard for cellular research. However, barriers separating the conventional disciplines continue to hinder successful implementation of this powerful hybrid approach, leaving a myriad of complex biological phenomena virtually impenetrable.
To this end, we are providing a conference that will serve as a platform for the exchanging of ideas and synthesis of collaborations between experimentalists and theoreticians from a broad spectrum of disciplines and career stages. This conference has been designed to highlight the interplay between cutting-edge biomathematical approaches and experimental techniques, to identify future directions in the field of computational cell biology, and to provide a rare opportunity for young researchers to interact with several leading scientists. We will also feature a special forum to highlight current developments and challenges in interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate education, both at Virginia Tech and across the nation, including the genesis of new interdisciplinary majors intended to prepare students for the modern research landscape.
