First International Summer Institute on Network Physiology (ISINP 2017)
September 06, 2017
Research Professor Plamen Ch. Ivanov initiated and directed the First International Summer Institute on Network Physiology (ISINP 2017) at the Lake Como School for Advanced Studies, Italy. Attended by participants from 16 countries, the event laid the foundations of a new interdisciplinary field at the interface of physics, biomedical engineering and medicine to understand health and disease through networks of organ interactions. Originated from research at the BU Laboratory for Network Physiology, and supported by the W. M. Keck Foundation and the Alessandro Volta Foundation, the event was organized by dedicated committee members: Drs. Xiyun Zhang, Fabrizio Lombardi, Chengyu Huo (postdoctoral fellows) and Jilin Wang (PhD student) at the BU Physics Department.
