ISCB Student Council: Next Generation Computational Biologists
Welcome to the ISCB Student Council, the student organization of the International Society for Computational Biology.
Our mission is to promote the development of the next generation of computational biologists. We achieve our goal through provision of scientific events, networking opportunities, soft-skills training, educational resources and career advice, while attempting to influence policy processes affecting science and education. The Student Council website is a resource for the global computational biology student community and we allow you to get in touch with your peers and to find out about events and initiatives for computational biology students - no matter where in the world you are. If you have questions or comments don't hesitate to contact us.
We are proud to announce Dr. Barbara Treutlein as a keynote speaker of the SCS 2019!
Dr. Barbara Treutlein is a Max Planck Research Group Leader, a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor at the Technical University Munich, and an Associate Professor at the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering of ETH Zürich. She is being awarded the 2019 ISSCR Dr. Susan Lim Award for Outstanding Young Investigator, due to her outstanding work in single-cell transcriptomics.
Dr. Barbara’s group uses and develops single-cell genomics approaches in combination with stem cell-based 2- and 3-dimensional culture systems to study human organogenesis in health and disease. In particular, they use stem cell-derived human organoids to model the development of human organs in vitro and to understand how cell fate is orchestrated in complex human tissues. Thus, she was one of the first to reconstruct the development of complex mammalian tissue, and to provide a molecular description of individual cell regeneration in the axolotl limb.
Thanks to all of our speakers, especially our keynote speaker Dr. Sagun Fatumo, and everyone who attended the symposium this year for making it a great event!
You can submit an abstract for oral and/or poster presentations at SCS 2017 at the following link.
You can also apply for a travel fellowship, however, you need to submit an abstract first to become eligible. Your abstract number will be required when submitting your travel fellowship application.
Abstract calls will close on May 14, 2017.
