Agenda

Below is 2012 NCSB meet agenda. This meeting will take place in Room 115 of the Biological Sciences Learning Center (BSLC) building on the University of Chicago campus, 924 East 57th Street, Chicago, IL 60637.

Please note that, as discussed at last year’s All Centers meeting, selected industry scientists have been invited to this year’s meeting, with the goal of encouraging discussion of (1) industrial careers for systems biology trainees and (2) the opportunities and challenges afforded by academic/industrial collaborations. Industry representatives will be invited to the Thursday evening PI dinner.
