Additional Information: 
The CPBF school has two ultimate goals for students: 1. To build an understanding of how physics problems emerge from thinking about developing embryos, communicating bacteria, dynamic neural networks, animal behaviors, evolution, and more; 2. To learn how ideas and methods from statistical physics, simulation, data analysis, and imaging connect to diverse biological phenomena. The 2019 school is limited to 24 students, and is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
