Networks have been used to describe interactions at different levels of organization: between molecules in biological systems, between people in social systems, and even between parts of the brain that form an individual’s personality. Do the same rules apply at these different levels of organization? What can we learn from one level that helps us better understand other levels of organization? Professor Liebovitch will lead a panel discussion of these exciting questions with colleagues from different disciplines.

This is part of the City of Science series. See the CUNY Graduate Center Office of Public Programs for more information: Register here.
