"Chalk" talks (whiteboard only, no slideware) on conceptual issues in biological systems. Open to all.

Because of COVID19 pandemic restrictions, Theory Lunch cannot be held in its usual format.
We will be holding talks remotely on Zoom. To receive zoom details, you need to be on the theory lunch mailing list.
Please send an e-mail to jeremy (at) hms.harvard.edu to join the list.
Information for zoom participants.
Please join zoom under your own name, so that we know who is there and who is asking a question.
Please keep your video on, to help the speaker feel more connected to the audience.
The talk will start at 12.30pm US Eastern Time. Zoom will be open from 12 noon; feel free to join after that time.
Why not bring some lunch, talk to other participants and keep the spirit of the old Theory Lunch alive?
Zoom recordings, if available, are accessible through abstracts
