On the 25th of October Utrecht University will host a symposium on the topic of quantitative and computational biology, highlighting examples of interdisciplinary research between Life Sciences and Natural Sciences. The goal of the day is to showcase the added value when the strengths of both disciplines are combined. There will be talks about mathematical modeling in biology, bioinformatics, and synthetic cells. So if you are a student interested in expanding your knowledge beyond the scope of your own research field, then this is the symposium for you!
The symposium is free of charge. Check out the programme and register on: https://qbio-symposium.sites.uu.nl/.
