Cross-cutting Theories in Biology Symposium

8:00–9:30 am Online

On May 17-18, 2021, the University of Chicago will host a mini-symposium to bring together our faculty and two colleagues from the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) in Paris for talks and discussions about new ideas and theories in biology. Prof. Aleksandra Walczak and Prof. Thierry Mora will join us from the Ecole Normale Superieure. They will each give talks on the interactions between COVID-19 and the immune system, followed by additional presentations by UChicago faculty about more cross-cutting ideas in biology.
