QBI - Symposium

QBI/Weizmann Institute Symposium on Molecular Systems Biology



8:00 AM-10:15 AM

On behalf of Drs. Nevan Krogan, Tanja Kortemme, Noam Stern-Ginossar, Dan Tawfik and Yitzhak Pilpel, the inaugural QBI/Weizmann Institute Symposium on Molecular Systems Biology will be held online in a two-part series on July 15 and July 22 from 8am - 10:05am PDT. This symposium will focus on the integration of genetics, biophysics, biochemistry and structural biology and leverage the expertise at QBI and the Weizmann Institute.

The Quantitative Biosciences Institute (QBI) seeks transformative results in biomedicine by supporting fundamental quantitative research in the biological sciences. The Weizmann Institute has a long history of investigation and discovery rooted in a mission of advancing science for the benefit of humanity.

The QBI/Weizmann Institute Symposium on Molecular Systems Biology aims to facilitate collaborative relationships between scientists from both institutions. Following the symposium, we will launch a series of joint activities and hope to put in place a collaborative agreement between the Weizmann Institute and QBI to enable scientists to work together through exchange programs and opportunities for collaborative funding.
