Interdisciplinary research is at the heart of modern science. Applying quantitative approaches to important problems in cell biology is an important example. QBI has over time featured pair talks that feature a biologist and a quantitative scientist who have collaborated on a challenging biological problem.
- Marino Zerial & Yannis Kalaidzidis (Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Dresden, Germany).Topic: Quantitative studies towards a systems understanding of cell and tissue organization.
- Spencer Freeman (University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada) & Khuloud Jaqaman (UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, USA).Topic: Single molecule dynamics at the plasma membrane.
