Minisymposium Title: Soft Matter and Complex Biological Systems

Minisymposium Description: The purpose of this minisymposium is to bring together active researchers in the field of soft matter materials whose research activities are closely related to various complex biological phenomena, mechanisms and functionality. In recent years, various complex biological systems have been successfully modeled using soft matter models like cell motility, biological gels, ion channel modeling etc.. The Siam Materials Meeting provides an opportunity for people with diverse background to exchange ideas and forge new collaborations. You are all experts in various related fields involving soft matter modeling, experiments and simulations. It would be ideal to have such a group to discuss current issues and predict future directions in this active interdisciplinary research field.
