Understanding macroscopic multicellular life requires the study of processes occurring in the microscopic nanoscale world of individual cells where the relevant physics is very different from the physics governing macroscopic processes. This talk will draw on examples from Groff's research to highlight some physical principles that are important to the nanoscale processes of life. Experimental results will be presented to highlight the relative unimportance of gravity at the nanoscale compared to diffusion. Additionally, the importance of electrochemical gradients at the nanoscale will be emphasized by sharing results from his computational neuroscience and calcium signaling research.
Groff completed his undergraduate degree at
