2015 Quantitative Biology Student Symposium
The first Quantitative Biology Student Symposium will be held on March 10, 2015 at the Jenny Smoly Caruthers Biotechnology Building!
This symposium is organized by students, for students, and is a great opportunity to present your research in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere! The symposium will cover a wide breadth of quantitative biology topics including (but not limited to) ecological modeling, speciation genomics, bioimaging, and biophysics. Whether you hope to practice before attending a national conference, have some new exciting results, or want feedback on an in-progress project, this is the perfect avenue for presenting.
The symposium will run from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm on Tuesday, March 10 and will include two poster sessions, oral presentations, and a keynote address by Dr. David Weitz from Harvard University. Dr. Weitz’s research examines mechanical properties of cells from a biophysics perspective and using multiphase fluid flow to create, control, and use emulsions with microfluidic devices. If you would like to participate, but not present, please register here. Breakfast, lunch, and coffee are included for all symposium participants.
