Research Professor Plamen Ch. Ivanov directed the Second International Summer Institute on Network Physiology (ISINP 2019) at the Lake Como School for Advanced Studies, Italy. Attended by 120 participants from 25 countries, the event focused on a new emerging 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: Jilin Wang, Rossella Rizzo, Congtai Hu and Dr. Xiyun Zhang at the BU Physics Department.
