It has been a week full of seminars and it’s not over yet. Today at 4:30pm I’ll give an on-line talk on “Navigating through morphospace: physicist’s perspective on multicellular development” at PAU (http://pau.krakow.pl). The talk will be in Polish. The talk will be available through MS-Teams at PAU Team.
Today, at 3pm IST time (11:30 Kraków time) I’ll give an on-line talk about how information is processed during development of spinal cord. The mtg is organized at The Institute of Mathematical Sciences in Chennai. Check the abstract at https://www.imsc.res.in/~asamal/seminar/MarcinZagorski_Oct20_2020.pdf and join on Google Meet meet.google.com/coz-yrmo-nrp. Everyone is welcome!
In 20 min, Adela will present her post-doctoral research on cluster analysis for super-resolution microscopy. Join us for the first seminar in the winter semester at MarkKacSeminar team on MS Teams.
The conference “Dynamics of Biological Systems: from viruses to simulation” co-organized by our group is over. We had 34 talks and 120 participants. Many thanks to all speakers for excellent talks and everyone for lively discussions! We are looking forward to the next edition!
Yesterday Jan successfully defended his bachelor thesis about error correction mechanisms in pattern formation of developing tissues. He will soon start at the Heidelberg University the BSc to PhD program at the Max Planck School ‘Matter to Life’. Good luck Jan!
My interview on how cells acquire information about their position in the tissue is now is available at https://rzeczo.pl/blog/2020/09/04/chemiczne-sygnaly-dla-komorek/. Photo credit goes to Adela.
We organize conference ‘Dynamics of Biological Systems: from viruses to populations’ on 23-25 September. We have excellent speakers and expect many great contributions from participants! Register now at: https://indico.cern.ch/event/943962/overview
Last week, Adela Staszowska joined our group as a postdoc. Adela did a postdoc at the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics at King’s College London. She will investigate how gene regulatory networks interpret noisy morphogen signals.
The outstanding young researchers received scholarships from the Minister of Science and Higher Education. 5 out of 18 scholarships at the Jagiellonian University went to the researchers at the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science: Anna Majcher Fitas, Kamil Korzekwa, Rafał Zuzak, Mateusz Łącki and Marcin Zagórski.
