Event Details

Recognizing systems biology as a “scientific priority that will define the future of health and biomedical science,” Columbia University Medical Center created a new Department of Systems Biology in July 2013. Please join us for this full-day symposium to learn more about the unique perspectives that this emerging field can offer, and how new, interdisciplinary approaches based in systems biology are contributing to novel discoveries in both basic research and the study of human disease.

Organizer

Columbia University Department of Systems Biology

The Columbia University Department of Systems Biology is an interdisciplinary program based in New York City whose goal is to advance the integration of quantitative and experimental research methods in the biological and biomedical sciences. With a faculty of more than two dozen members and onsite research infrastructure for high-performance computing, next-generation genome sequencing and analysis, and high-throughput screening, we conduct research to understand the behavior of complex biological networks and how small changes in those networks produce the diversity of life around us. We also provide graduate education and postdoctoral training to increase understanding of systems biology and promote its use in biological research.
