 In the biennial Winter Aspen Physics Conference on Single Molecule Biophysics organized by Steven Block of Stanford University and Thomas Perkins of JILA and University of Colorado, CPLC scientists Yann Chemla, Taekjip Ha and Paul Selvin presented their latest research to more than one hundred researchers from the US, Europe and Japan. Thomas Perkins is a member of the external advisory board of CPLC. As part of the tradition of Aspen Physics Conferences, CPLC co-director Taekjip Ha gave a public lecture at the Wheeler Opera House in Aspen, attended by Aspenites as well as biophysicists. You can watch the lecture online from the grassroots TV Aspen. Previous public lectures of the Single Molecule Biophysics Winter Conference were given by Steven Chu (2003), Yale Goldman (2005), W.E. Moerner (2007), James Spudich (2009) and Xiaowei Zhuang (2011). The public lecture was preceded by 'Physics Cafe' run by Olga Dudko of UC San Diego, Jeff Gelles of Brandeis University and David Rueda of Imperial College.
