Undergraduate Quantitative Biology Summer School

Welcome to the 2nd UQ-Bio Summer School!

June 1-17, 2022. Fort Collins, Colorado, USA

Applications are due March 15, 2022Apply here!

In-person participation will be limited to 30 students selected based on their past coursework and statements of interest. Online events will be limited to 200 registered participants. All events are free to all participants.

The UQ-bio Summer School is an annual event intended to help undergraduate and first-year graduate students acquire essential skills to advance predictive modeling of cellular regulatory systems. Participants will be exposed to a survey of work in quantitative biology and provided with in-depth instruction in selected techniques. The emphasis of the 2022 program will be experimental and computational techniques useful to understand cellular regulatory networks at the single-cell level.
