Day 1: February 22, 2021 

The two days are organized broadly about three length scales: small (molecules and cells), medium (human scale: your own physiology to the city or town where you work), and large (animal/human populations, from national to global). Our sessions open with “End-to-End,” aiming to provide examples for predicting and controlling phenomena across multiple scales. Click here for Day 2 details. 

Questions during Day 1? Please reach out to Alexander Rodriguez, Pulak Agarwal, and Goli Yamini.
