Cancer Systems Biology – 3 week Intensive Course

Join us for a three week lecture/laboratory course to provide training at the interface between Cancer Biology and Systems Biology presented by the Center for Complex Biological Systems of the University of California, Irvine.

The main goal of our course is to provide a diverse group of participants an intensive three-week program to bridge individual training deficits and facilitate entry into the Cancer Systems Biology field, and to provide a high-level systems biology exploration of issues in current cancer research.

The intensive course will take place on the UCI campus from May 7 – 25, 2018 and will include lectures, laboratory modules, and a variety of skill-building exercises aimed at researchers of all levels from graduate and medical school, postdoctoral and clinical fellows, to faculty and industry researchers.  We anticipate a class size of approximately 20.  To learn more about the course philosophy, curriculum and instructors, click on the menu links.

The course is funded by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health through the Cancer Research Education Program- Courses for Skills Development. This grant provides funds to reimburse U.S. citizens and permanent residents for travel and lodging/subsistence.  A modest registration fee will be charged to cover on-site meals and refreshments.  Fellowships are available to defray the registration costs of diverse, disabled or under-represented participants.  For more information see the page on course fees.

An application portal, with information on how to apply, will become available on February 1, and applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
