Session A - Terry Hwa


Dr. Terry Hwa is the Presidential Chair Professor of Physics and Biology at University of California, San Diego. He is an active proponent of interdisciplinary research and the co-director of the Graduate Program in Quantitative Biology at UCSD. He is also a Distinguished Visiting Professor at the University of Hong Kong, and a Senior Fellow at ETH Zurich. His research is focused on quantitative microbiology, particularly on the bacterium E. coli which is the best characterized living organism both molecularly and physiologically. In the long run, his group wishes to develop a quantitative, predictive understanding of the physiological behaviors of the organism and elucidate how the behaviors emerge from underlying molecular interactions.
