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 theorizing 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.
