NBIA Colloquium by Ramin Golestanian

Making Living Matter from the bottom up 

Ramin Golestanian

(University of Oxford)

There are many ways to study life, and one that is
particularly appealing to physicists is regarding it
as self-organised active soft matter that is away from
equilibrium ``just the right way''. In this Colloquium,
I will discuss this notion, and provide a number of examples
of how we can begin to put together simple systems - from basic
ingredients that we fully understand - that would exhibit
the kind of active behaviour we find in living systems. 

Refreshments will be served in the NBIA lounge after the talk.
