Pankaj Mehta is a Professor of Physics in the College of Arts & Sciences. He is interested in theoretical problems at the interface of statistical physics and biology. His research explores want how large-scale, collective behaviors observed in biological systems emerge from the interaction of many individual molecular elements, and how these interactions allow cells to perform complex computations in response to environmental cues. He is part of the BU Bioinformatics Program and the BUMC Center for Regenerative Medicine (CReM) , and the BU Biological Design Center.sophisticated computations in response to environmental cues.
