Biological and Statistical Physics Discussion group meetings (BSDG) create a platform to share our research interests in Theoretical Biology and learn from each other through biweekly meetings.

Our meetings consist of a presentation by a guest speaker, followed by an informal discussion, giving us a chance to explore the topic presented, exchange ideas and network. Lunch is usually offered at the end of the session.

BSDGs are attended by colleagues coming from several research groups, mainly BSS, POM, DAMTP, the Department of Chemistry, the Stem Cell Institute and several others where methods of statistical physics are employed in the Theoretical Biology arena.

The meetings are jointly organised by Will Grant and Alex Leonard. Please e-mail either or to be added to the mailing list and receive more information or if you would like to volunteer to give a talk. Below a list of previous BSDG talks is presented.
