Curtis Callan is a theoretical physicist who has recently become fascinated by the opportunities for theory that modern biology presents. While the phenomena of biology do not submit to mathematically precise theoriz- ing as readily as do those of physics, modern data and statistical thinking suggest well-posed theoretical questions in certain corners of the field. At IAS, Callan aims to develop a deeper theoretical understanding of one such corner, the adaptive immune system, and to identify other areas of biology that are ripe for theoretical thinking.
