12:30 – 1:30 PM
BRC, 10th Floor, Room 1060 A/B

Abstract: In this talk I will discuss the scaling laws governing the stochastic growth dynamics of individual cells and populations, in and out of steady-steady. Time permitting; I will make connections with energetic costs of cellular information processing.

Bio: Sri Iyer-Biswas began her career as a theoretical physicist, and then transitioned to experimental biophysics as a post-doc at Princeton University and the University of Chicago. Through her interdisciplinary work – combining theory and application, and spanning physics and biology – her research focuses on advancing the fundamental physics of living systems. In recognition of her work, Sri Iyer-Biswas has been named a 2017 Scialog Fellow for Molecules Come to Life.
