Seminars in Computational and Systems Biomedicine

Host: Zeynep H. Gümüs

Seminars take place on Fridays in LC-504 at 3:00pm approximately once a month.

The goal of the Seminars in Computational and Systems Biomedicine (SCSB), sponsored by The HRH Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud Institute for Computational Biomedicine (ICB), is to provide a venue for Weill Cornell, MSKCC and Rockefeller researchers and students to hear about innovative quantitative and multi-disciplinary biomedical research. Invited speakers consist of world-renowned scientists who use systems and computational approaches for studying important biological and biomedical problems.
