Pranab Das, professor of physics, delivered at talk entitled "Emergence and Active Matter: Dynamics and the Materials of Life" to the Neuroscience Research Center at the Champalimaud Institute in Lisbon, Portugal, on Nov. 16.

The Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown is one of Europe's newest and most dynamic neuroscience research institutes. Installed in a major new campus on the Tagus river in Lisbon, Portugal, in 2010, the institute combines world-class neuroscience research with a new focus on cancer research.

Das was invited to present his team's work on the biophysical basis of living cells and a new approach to physical material focusing on the microscopic activity of life's tiniest constituent parts.
