At @ucdavis 3/12: Leah Edelstein-Keshet “From Single to Collective Cell Motility: What Can We Learn Using Math ematics?”

Monday March 12, 2018


We are pleased to announce Dr. Edelstein-Keshet, Professor at the University of British Columbia, will be presenting “From Single to Collective Cell Motility: What Can We Learn Using Mathematics?” as part of the Storer Lectureship in Life Sciences Series. The lecture is at 4:10 pm on Monday, March 12, 2018 in the Student Community Center.

Dr. Edelstein Keshet is a mathematical biologist and has made far-reaching research contributions in areas such as the mathematics and modeling of the cell, the immune system, biological swarms and applied mathematics education.

In 1995, Dr. Keshet became the first female president of the Society for Mathematical Biology. She was awarded the Krieger-Nelson Prize of the Canadian Mathematical Society in 2003 and became a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) in 2014. Dr. Keshet authored the SIAM book “Mathematical Models in Biology.”

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
