Checking in With Dean Forbes -- December 2019
I spent part of last week with about 90 other biologists at a meeting in Atlanta on Reintegrating Biology hosted by the National Science Foundation. It was one of three parallel “jumpstart” meetings happening around the country and online. We were asked to think about big questions in biology such as: Is there a universal theoretical framework to understand robustness and resilience? How does life persist despite constant change? How can artificial intelligence be utilized to advance biology? and so on.
