The Frontiers in Microrheology Workshop will bring together many of the users and developers of microrheological techniques- both theorists and experimentalists to review the principal successes of microrheology, share exciting recent advances, and make plans for carrying this field forward into its second decade. The workshop will provide participants the opportunity to help the microrheology community define and achieve its new goals.

Sponsored by the Institute for Complex Adaptive Matter (ICAM) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) in conjunction with the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) at UCLA, the three-day workshop will include:
