Algorithmiq’s first Symposium ‘At the Interface between Quantum Physics, Complex Networks, and Life Sciences’
We have an incredible line up of world experts in the fields of Network Medicine, Quantum Biology, Complex Networks, and Quantum Physics.
Date: Tuesday 14th June 2022
Time: 9am – 1 pm EET
At the Oodi Library
in the Maijansali lecture hall (Helsinki)
Agenda: We are proud to welcome the following world-class speakers (see attached pdf for the abstracts of the talks and full information on the speakers):
“Network Medicine: Novel Approach to Human Disease and Therapeutics”
Professor Joseph Loscalzo is Hersey Professor of the Theory and Practice of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Chairman of the Department of Medicine, and Physician-in-Chief at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Prof. Loscalzo is recognized as an outstanding cardiovascular scientist, clinician, and teacher. He has received many awards, including the Clinician-Scientist Award, the Distinguished Scientist Award, the Research Achievement Award, and the Paul Dudley White Award from the American Heart Association. Together with Prof. Barabasi, he is one of the fathers of the emerging field of Network Medicine.
“Quantum Effects in Biological Systems”
Martin Plenio is Director of the Institute of Theoretical Physics and of the Center for Quantum Bio-Sciences and he leads the Controlled Quantum Dynamics group at Ulm University. He received his Diploma (1992) and PhD (1994) in Physics at Göttingen University. In 1995 he became Fedor-Lynen Fellow in the group of Prof. Sir Peter Knight at Imperial College London. His pioneering work covers a broad range of topics, including quantum information science, quantum effects in biological systems, quantum optics, and quantum technologies and has led him to co-found NVision Imaging Technologies. Recent recognitions of his work include an ERC Synergy grant, the award of Research Building & Center for Quantum-BioSciences and his listing as a Highly Cited Researcher.
“Networks, scales, and symmetries”
M. Ángeles Serrano is an ICREA Research Professor at the Dept. of Condensed Matter Physics of the University of Barcelona (UB). She obtained her Ph.D. in Physics at UB, and a master in mathematics for finance from the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica CRM. She is a founding member of Complexitat, the Catalan network for the study of complex systems, and a promoter member of UBICS, the UB Institute of Complex Systems. Professor Serrano is a world-leading expert in Complex Network Science. Her work focuses on the role of space in real networks, producing maps in a hidden geometry where distance measures the likelihood of interactions and enables multiscale unfolding. She is also renowned for her research on multilayer networks in which different types of interactions or nodes coexist. Applications of her work cover a wide variety of real systems, from biological to economic and socio-technological systems.
11:40 – 12:30 – Professor Antonio Acin – ICFO-The Institute of Photonic Sciences.
Antonio Acín is an ICREA Research Professor at ICFO-The Institute of Photonic Sciences. He has a degree in Physics from the Universitat de Barcelona (UB) and in Telecommunication Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. He got his PhD in Theoretical Physics in 2001 from the UB. After a post-doctoral stay in Geneva, he joined ICFO in 2003. At ICFO, Acín leads the Quantum Information Theory group. Professor Acín is a world expert in quantum information theory, a highly inter-disciplinary area combining tools and concepts from mathematics, computer science, physics and engineering. He is one of the inventors of device-independent quantum key-distribution, a milestone in the field of quantum cryptography. He has also contributed significantly to research in the novel field of complex quantum networks. His research activity also covers aspects of foundations of quantum physics, quantum thermodynamics, many-body physics and quantum optics.
