iPoLS Student Research Network


International Physics of Living Systems Student Research Network (iPoLS SRN) is a network of graduate students and graduate student educators at leading international research universities, all working on the physics of living systems. The Network member nodes have been among the pioneers in extending physics approaches to understanding living systems. Faculty and trainees at the network institutions collectively help to define the future of the field. This Student Research Network supports visiting research internships to other institutions, which serve both to broadening students perspectives and to create collaborations among groups at the various nodes---collaborations that will, hopefully, last a lifetime. The Network also supports exploration in education at the interface between physics and biology, ensuring that the trainees learn the language of biology, but develop and maintain a firm grounding in physics.

Emory TMLS is sub-node of the Atlanta iPoLS SRN node, headquartered at Georgia Institute of Technology. Our node supports seminars, workshops, and other training opportunities, both for our trainees and for the general community (see Conferences & Symposia for some examples). By helping to run World-Wide Physics of Life, we make sure that the exciting biophysics discoveries and new training opportunities are accessible to every interested scientist around the world.   

The following Emory faculty, postdocs, and graduate students participate in the iPoLS SRN:
