International Workshop Fluid Physics of Life

21 Oct 2019
25 Oct 2019
Dresden, Germany

Fluid flow is a key player for the function and behaviour of biological systems. Without fluid flow, life as we know it would not exist. Understanding the flow dynamics is challenging since flows are inherently coupled over spatial and temporal scales and may transport along active particulates that impact surrounding morphology. This workshop brings together physicists, applied mathematicians, biologists, and physiologists to work on the fundamental principles of how flows govern life.

Topics include

  • Flows within the cell
  • Flow tissue interaction
  • Transport and pumps
  • Selective transport and signaling
  • Flow biofilm interaction
