Event Details

UCL Computational Biology Symposium Flyer


As part of its vision to promote world-class interdisciplinary research to tackle Grand Challenges such as Global Health, UCL has created a number of research centres and institutes, which have been brought together to form the UCL Computational Biology community.

To formally launch this community, a Symposium will be held on Tuesday 15th February 2011 from 9.15am to approximately 5.30pm, in the Christopher Ingold Auditorium, Department of Chemistry, University College London. A poster session and post-Symposium Reception from 6.00pm, will be held in North Cloisters, Wilkins building.

TICKET REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. Registration on the day will take place outside the Christopher Ingold Auditorium, Department of Chemistry, from 8.45am.
