BioSB PhD Retreat 2019

YoungCB (ISCB Regional Student Group Netherlands) is pleased to invite you to the BioSB PhD retreat 2019 in the afternoon of April 1st. The retreat will be held in Lunteren at the Congrescentrum De Werelt, preceding the BioSB conference. The retreat is sponsored by the BioSB research school. We encourage all (PhD-) students and young researchers in the fields of computational biology, bioinformatics, systems biology and related fields to attend this annual retreat to discuss your research and build a network with fellow young peers in the Netherlands.

This year’s theme is Translational Bioinformatics. We will have 3 keynote speakers and a panel discussion. In the evening there will be a dinner in the centre of Lunteren, followed by a fun social event at the conference centre bar. The evening program provides you the opportunity to network with fellow (PhD-) students and young researchers.
