Prof. Kargol delivered a keynote address at the Undergraduate Research Symposium at Belmont University in Nashville, TN.

Prof. Kargol has been invited as a keynote speaker at BURS, the Belmont Undergraduate Research Symposium, in Nashville, TN. BURS, held every two years, is a venue for undergraduate researchers from Belmont University to present their research in arts and humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences and mathematics. Prof. Kargol's keynote address, titled "Neural signaling", focused on interdisciplinary approach to science, using the Hodgkin-Huxley model of action potentials as an example of how a transfer of concepts and methods from physical sciences to life sciences yielded a first quantitative model of a neural process. Prof. Kargol also talked to students and faculty about his textbook "Introduction to Cellular Biophysics" which has been adopted at Belmont for Cellular Biophysics courses.
