Complex Systems Summer School 2014

Beth does research in the Department of Surgery at the University of Minnesota. Her Ph.D. is in biophysics. She is interested in circadian rhythms, biological oscillators, and biological networks. She wishes to understand biological network dynamics and the roles that observable pathophysiology and periodic structures play in these dynamics. If physiological symptoms such as increased temperature or heart rate result from altered network structure, function, and dynamics (or vice versa), there is therapeutic potential in manipulation of these networks. Interactions of cellular, genetic, and metabolic networks with observable physiology may be hierarchical and should cross multiple scales.

She looks forward to forming new personal and professional relationships at CSSS and having many conversations over a craft beer or two this summer.
