Evolving concepts of the cell, biology's fundamental unit

The ability to make precise measurements of single cells at unprecedented scale and resolution, under demanding conditions, is changing the way we ask and answer biological questions. How are these technological advances changing our conceptual understanding of how biology works? How are they expanding our knowledge of what biology can do? How can we harness its potential in engineering and medicine?

We hope you can join us in San Francisco, where we will bring together disciplines as diverse as evolutionary biology, biophysics, neuroscience, and quantitative cell biology to develop insight into these questions.

Topics include:

  • Measuring single cells and their components at scale 
  • Understanding cell physiology
  • Diversity in cellular behavior, form, and function
  • Dynamics of cell populations in space and time
