Honors Program & Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar, Dr. Michael Deem

September 19, 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Manoa Campus, BUSAD A101 Add to Calendar

Dr. Deem will be offering a public and open lecture titled “In Search of Fundamental Mathematical Laws of Biology.”

In this forum Dr. Deem will describe his participation over the past few years in an effort to find fundamental mathematical laws in biology and theory for understanding the emergence of multi-scale, hierarchical structure in biology. He will also describe how modular structure in proteins, genetics, and biological networks may arise and how it can be understood. He will show the implications of the theory for engineering design, and will discuss additional examples of structure formation in ecological food networks, developmental pathways, physiology, and social networks. He then will turn to theories of the immune system and describe a theory of the immune response to vaccines. He will illustrate this theory by application to design of the annual influenza vaccine and use this theory to explain limitations in the vaccine for dengue fever and to suggest a transport-inspired amelioration of these limitations.
