The National Academies will host a symposium 19 December 2007 to explore ways that physical and life scientists, working together, can promote transformative advances in scientific understanding. The symposium will address research challenges in biomedicine, the origin of life and evolution, cognition and learning, energy security, climate change and environment, safety and national security, biologically-inspired materials, questions at levels from molecules to organisms and from organisms to ecosystems, and tools necessary to conduct this research. The symposium is being organized by the National Research Council who is conducting a study on the intersection of the physical and life sciences.
Registration is open until Friday 7 December 2007 and can be completed online at: http://www7.nationalacademies.org/bpa/RIPLS_Symposium.html.
