Data-driven systems medicine

Jun 11-12th, 2019

 DELL EMC and Partners are delighted to be hosting Data-driven systems medicine workshop at the Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC) on June 11th-12th, 2019, Maindy Road, CF24 4HQ Cardiff. The event is free but early registration is necessary:https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/data-driven-systems-medicine-tickets-58021562054?utm_term=eventurl_text

The aim of this day and a half long workshop is to gather a multi-disciplinary group of experts from both Academia and IT/Parmaceutical Industry who recognize the applicability of machine learning and computational methods in systems medicine, as a first step on the path to personalised medicine. They will discuss the ways that artificial intelligence and systems modelling can be applied to issues relating to medicine and healthcare using best practice to detail the synergies and interfaces between the different scientific communities and IT industry. 

The event will run from 12pm-5pm June 11th to 8.45am-4pm June 12th and will host 14 invited speakers. The workshop is intended for senior PhD students, postdocs, researchers, academics and representatives of Industry with interest/background in the area of data/health science and systems medicine. Up to 15 poster boards are also available. Please contact szomolayb@cardiff.ac.uk with any inquiries.

6th International Synthetic & Systems Biology Summer School - SSBSS 2019

July 22-26, 2019

Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, Tuscany, Italy July 22-26

The Synthetic and Systems Biology Summer School (SSBSS) is a full-immersion five-day residential summer school at the  Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, on cutting-edge advances in systems and synthetic biology with lectures delivered by world-renowned experts. The school provides a stimulating environment for students (from Master students to PhD students), Post-Docs, early career researches, academics and industry leaders. Participants will also have the chance to present their results (with Oral Talks and Posters), and to interact with their peers, in a friendly and constructive environment.


Metabolic Pathway Analysis 2019

12th - 16th of August, 2019

Riga, Latvia
University of Latvia Academic Centre for Life Sciences

Deadlines: Abstracts: 12th of April, 
Early registration: 15th of June

Course: Computational Systems Biology of Cancer: Single Cell Analysis

September 23-28, 2019

Place: Institut Curie, Paris, France




Registration: no fees (the free-of-charge registration is compulsory)

Application deadline20 June, 2019

Selection results: July 1, 2019


Course objective

To improve interpretation and use of omics data that nowadays are accumulated in any biological or medical lab.  This year, the course will particularly focus on SysBio approaches for single cell data analysis. We will review current methods and tools for the analysis and interpretation of single cell data, along with concrete applications related to cancer. In particular, we will emphasize the role of single cell data research for understanding the heterogeneity of tumor.


Deciphering and modelling of biological networks involved in cancer

-Comprehensive signalling/metabolic networks and pathway databases in cancer

-Cell type-specific pathways resources

-Single cell omics data visualisation, analysis and interpretation

-Network inference from big data

-Mathematical modelling of cancer molecular mechanisms


Big data: single cell and clinical data analysis

-Inferring and analysing tumor heterogeneity from single cell data

-Prediction of response to treatment

-Single cell data for more precise patients' stratification

-Bioimage informatics as highcontent screening in single cell research

-Spatial transcriptomics in organs
