The Georgia Tech School of Physics hosted the 2023 iPoLS meeting, August 1-4 2023.
Over 200 participants from physics, biology and engineering departments around the US and the world recently attended the annual International Physics of Living Systems (PoLS). The meeting, held in the Marcus Nanotechnology Building Aug 1-4 was hosted by the Georgia Tech PoLS group. PoLS is a burgeoning research area in physics which seeks to discover principles of life across scales, from molecules to ecosystems. Within the last decades, an increasing number of physicists have been drawn to the area; this student-focused meeting, now seeks to connect researchers for intellectual and networking purposes to help develop the field. The PoLS Student Research Network (SRN) of which Georgia Tech is a node, is funded by the National Science Foundation.
