From the structure of DNA to the development of magnetic resonance imaging, many major advances in biology and medicine have come about by collaboration between physical scientists and biologists.

To understand biological processes the interaction between different disciplines enables us to develop technologies to answer questions that were previously thought to be intractable and to define new questions. As an added incentive all the UK and European funding bodies are encouraging physical scientists and biologists to work more closely to address fundamental questions in biology. Young scientists with skills that span these disciplines will be well placed to obtain future funding.

To help promote this area, Clare Bryant (Veterinary Medicine), Ray Goldstein (DAMTP) and Ben Simons (The Cavendish Laboratory) are holding a one-day meeting targeted at late stage graduate students and early stage postdocs with the specific aim of illustrating how multidisciplinary approaches can deliver novel insights. The meeting will consist of talks by scientists using multidisciplinary techniques to showcase what is happening within the university.
