BICB January Symposium:  Keeping Our Curriculum Current
January 18, 2013  10:15 AM - 4:00 PM
University of Minnesota Rochester  |  Usq Rm 417

The Biomedical Informatics and Computational Biology (BICB) graduate program is in its fifth year and continues to prepare students in a rapidly advancing scientific environment. We invite BICB faculty, students, researchers, and other members of the BICB community to participate in a discussion on how to keep the BICB curriculum current and to provide opportunities for our students.

A keynote address from Dr. Gianrico Farrugia, Director of the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine, and short presentations from BICB students and BICB industry partners will bring different perspectives of the importance of biomedical informatics and computational biology in the future of biomedical research and clinical practice. A panel of BICB faculty will engage participants in a discussion on how to shape the direction of the BICB curriculum and what future steps the program should take to keep the curriculum current.

Students, faculty and other researchers have the opportunity to share their research in a poster session.

Transportation from the Twin Cities will be provided.
