Dynamics Days, Day 1 Morning

The first few talks of Dynamics Days were quite good. My favorite was from Fred MacIntosh (who I spoke with last night at the reception) on cytoskeletal networks. He's working on active cytoskeleton networks which are made to be firm and moved around in the cell by actin/myosin motors. He mentioned an application of this to the production of motion in biomimetic devices, which is something that got me really excited (and started the wheels in my head turning). More later.....
