The 2017 q-bio Summer School

Fort Collins, Colorado, USA

The Eleventh Annual q-bio Summer School will be held June 4-20, 2017 at the Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, USA. 

School Overview: The q-bio Summer School is an annual event intended to advance predictive modeling of cellular regulatory systems by exposing participants to a survey of work in quantitative biology. Public events at the school include 20-25 core lectures, daily career panel discussions, and more on issues related to quantitative biology.

The main topics of the 2017 summer school are:  Cell Signaling, Cancer Dynamics, Single-Cell Gene Regulation and Computational Synthetic Biology.

Organizers: Rosemary Braun (Northwestern University), William S. Hlavacek (Los Alamos National Laboratory), Marek Kimmel (Rice University), Brian Munsky (CSU), Ashok Prasad (CSU), Douglas Shepherd (University of Colorado, Denver), Patrick Shipman (CSU), Sabrina Spencer (University of Colorado, Boulder), Lev S. Tsimring (UC San Diego).
