Summer Course Success

Among ISB’s core values is the belief that we have a responsibility to share what we know. To that end, ISB hosts an annual weeklong Systems Biology of Disease Summer Course to introduce the core concepts of systems biology and their application to systems biomedicine. The course demonstrates the importance of cross-disciplinary interactions for the success of systems biology programs. Participants include graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, biomedical researchers, educators and principal investigators who have an interest in systems biomedicine. The 2017 course, which took place June 19-23, was well-attended and a huge success. Congratulations to our new graduates!
