14th International Summer School on Biocomplexity, Biodesign and Bioinnova, June 16-22, 2015, Seferihisar - Izmir, Turkey

April 13, 2015

Only 3 fellowships left!

The 14th International Summer School on Biocomplexity, Biodesign and Bioinnova: from Gene to System sponsored by the NSF and co-sponsored by the IEEE EMB Society, the Department of Biomedical Engineering at University of Houston and the Dokuz Eylul University will be held from June 16 - June 22, 2015 in Seferihisar - Izmir, Turkey. 

The main objective of this summer school is to expose undergraduate and graduate biological science and bioengineering students to the relatively new approaches of the mathematical and computational challenges in Systems Biology and the new directions in computational biology, bioinformatics and molecular engineering research and to facilitate rapid diffusion of these mathematical and computational tools in the biological sciences. These methods will be helpful, also, to students in computer science and mathematics who are interested in pursuing research in biology, bio-molecular engineering and bioengineering, since the summer school provides exceptional insights into the fundamental challenges in biological sciences.

This year, several fellowships from the NSF are available for students to attend the summer school. The fellowships will be awarded based on the scientific credentials of the candidates including their academic standing, the relevance of their research (only applies to graduate students) their career goals and the financial necessity.

Prospective candidates should send along with their application, their CV's, a recommendation letter from their advisor or their department chair, a summary of their research (only applies to graduate students) and their career goals for evaluation to Prof. Akay at MAkay@remove-this.uh.edu.

Prof. Metin Akay who chairs and organizes the Summer School is a member of p-medicine’s External Advisory Board.
