We are delighted to invite you to our annual National Cancer Institute-University of Maryland(NCI-UMD) Partnership for Integrative Cancer Research Symposium. Our Symposium, which aims to foster interactions between NCI and UMD in biophysics, systems biology, bioengineering, and bioinformatics, will be held in Bethesda, Maryland at the National Institutes of Health's John Edward Porter Neuroscience Research Center, room 640 on February 17, 2017 from 9am-5pm.
Dr. Robert Singer, of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, is our featured keynote speaker. Dr. Singer is a leader in the field of biophotonics, which enables scientists to observe activities within living cells at the molecular level, and in the study of mRNA, a molecule that controls the expression and positioning of proteins within cells.
Researchers from other NIH institutes are welcome to participate in our symposium and collaborate with our UMD colleagues. Please join us to learn about our current UMD graduate students who are performing collaborative research with NIH laboratories. We will also have a series of short talks, a poster session, and extended break time to allow for discussions of possible joint research collaborations. A full symposium schedule will be announced soon.
