QBI - Symposium

QBI/SBI Symposium on Molecular Networks of Cancer and Other Diseases



8:00 AM-10:45 AM

Organized by Drs. Walter Kolch of the University College Dublin (UCD) and Nevan Krogan of the Quantitative Biosciences Institute at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), the inaugural QBI/SBI-UCD Symposium on Molecular Networks of Cancer and Other Diseases will be held virtually on October 29 - 30, 2020 from 8:00 - 10:45 AM PDT.

The Quantitative Biosciences Institute (QBI) seeks transformative results in biomedicine by supporting fundamental quantitative research in the biological sciences. Systems Biology Ireland (SBI) at University College Dublin (UCD) specializes in the analyses and modeling of cellular signal transduction networks with a particular focus on developing new diagnostics and treatment strategies for cancer and inflammatory diseases. 

The 2020 QBI/SBI Symposium on Molecular Networks of Cancer and Other Diseases aims to facilitate collaborative relationships between scientists from both the US and Ireland. QBI and UCD recently signed a 5-year MOU to reinforce the links between scientists in San Francisco and Dublin, and enhance their collaborative ability to strengthen scientific research and innovation. Through this agreement, scientists will work together to identify opportunities to promote cooperative biosciences research and training activities.
