Video: Squirrels, Cancers, and other Invaders

Recently, at the Isaac Newton Institute's program on Coupling Geometric PDEs with Physics for Cell Morphology, Motility and Pattern Formation, our very own Professor Philip Maini, FRS, gave another one of his classic talks, featuring (almost) everything from squirrels to cancer, including the admission of crying and how to cope with it (spoiler). The talk was cleverly titled: "Case studies in modelling pattern formation Some other stuff"

Watch the video here, or check out the other videos from the workshop and future events at the Newton Institute. And remember: "The devil is in the mesoscale!"

  1. Thank you so much for the valuable share. GENETICS profiling reveals grey squirrels are not as good invaders even as we think, and that humans played a much larger role in spreading them through the united kingdom.

    Grey squirrels were imported to the UK from the 1890s onwards, and the traditional view is that they spread rapidly across the UK due to their ability cope with new landscapes. Different foule of grey squirrels were thought to have interbred into a 'supersquirrel' that has been better able to adapt and spread.
