Sindy has been invited as faculty for the summer course on Physiology: Modern Cell Biology Using Microscopic, Biochemical and Computational Approaches at the Marine Biology Lab in Summer 2014!
Quoting the course website: "The Physiology Course has a rich history, dating back to 1892, of training the leaders in biology and generating Nobel Prize experiments. However, this is not your grandfather’s Physiology Course! This intensive laboratory course has been revamped to meet the new challenges in biology by providing a unique interdisciplinary training environment at the interface between cellular and computational biology. The Physiology Course will bring together biological and physical/computational scientists, both in the faculty and the student body, to work together on cutting-edge problems in cell physiology."
