q-bio Summer School and Conference, 2022

q-bio Conference

15th Annual q-bio Conference, June 15-17, 2022.

Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO, USA.

We are excited to announce the 15th Annual q-bio Conference to be held on June 16 – 17, 2022 at the Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado.

The q-bio Conference at CSU will provide an intimate and enthusiastic venue to bring together diverse researchers with the common goal to advance predictive modeling and theoretical understanding of cellular and molecular biological systems, and in coordination with quantitative experimentation.  The focus of the 2022 will be learning of biological control mechanisms through modeling and analysis of single-cell data.  

It has been three years since the last in person meeting for the Annual q-bio Conference (2019 Program at UCSF), and Northern Colorado is especially lovely in June. We fully expect this year’s program to generate lively discussions, to help nucleate new collaborations, and to rekindle those collaborative relationships that brought us all to this interdisciplinary field in the first place.

This year, the 2022 q-bio Conference will again be directly associated with an annual Q-Bio Summer School that will be held immediately before the program on June 1-15 (both in person and virtually).  The focus will be learning models from single-cell optical microscopy experiments. Please encourage your enthusiastic students to apply.
