The Institute for Cellular Engineering (ICE) and the department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology are pleased to host a Symposium on Cellular Complexity on October 23, 2012 in the Murray D. Lincoln Campus Center at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The reductionist approaches of molecular and cellular biology have produced revolutionary advances in our understanding of biological function and information processing. The next challenge is to address cellular complexity by relating molecular components to their systemic function. By its very nature, the study of cellular complexity requires effective integration of scientists and engineers with different technical backgrounds and the interdisciplinary training of students to meet the rapidly evolving needs of academia, industry, and government. This symposium offers attendees a unique opportunity to hear presentations from five leading researchers worldwide in cellular complexity as well as a poster session to network with academic researchers and industrial practitioners from the New England area.
