Mathematical Biology seminar: "Control of membrane-bound tethered signaling reactions"

Samuel Isaacson (Boston University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

Many membrane-bound T cell receptors have long, unstructured cytoplasmic tails that contain tyrosine sites. These sites can serve as regulators of receptor activation when phosphorylated or…



Mathematical Biology seminar: "Many-body problem of classical mechanics in cell biology"

Alexander Mogilner (New York University)
- Tedori Family Auditorium, Levin Building, 425 S University Ave.

Many-body problem of celestial mechanics revolutionized applied mathematics and continues to provide inspiration. Math/physical communities are much less aware that there are numerous example of…

- Tedori Family Auditorium, Levin Building, 425 S University Ave.

Past Mathematical Biology Seminars



Mathematical Biology seminar: “Water Dynamics in Cells and Tissues"

Sean Sun (Johns Hopkins University)
- Tedori Family Auditorium, Levin Building, 425 S University Ave.

The mammalian cell surface is highly permeable to water. The cell can also actively control the water flux across the cell surface by pumping solutes (mostly ions), and thereby controlling the cell water…



Mathematical Biology seminar: "Fertilization Regulatory Networks"

Gustavo Martínez-Mekler (Instituto de Ciencias Físicas, UNAM)
- Tedori Family Auditorium, Levin Building, 425 S University Ave

Fertilization is one of the fundamental processes of living systems. Here I will address marine external fertilization and comment on recent work on mammals. I will show…
