CCIS Professor Guevara Noubir organized a recent NSF workshop in Boston dedicated to bringing together researchers with broad interests in computation and communication in the bio-nano world. A mix of scientists from often polarized fields such as Computer Science, Bioengineering, Mathematics, and Physics attended to foster interdisciplinary discussions and collaborations. Specific topics of interest included:
- Engineering synthetic biological circuits with communication interfaces
- Microbial communication networks
- Wireless energy transfer at the nano-scale
- Quantum coherence in biological systems
