The importance of the mathematical and computational sciences and technological developments in driving fundamental discoveries in cancer biology and many other biological fields is now widely acknowledged. To highlight the latest research in those areas, the IICD is planning a symposium titled "Mathematical and Computational Methods in Cancer and Biology." The event will take place on March 16-18th, 2023 at Columbia University. The conference will feature local, national and international speakers describing their work on cancer 'omics, population genetics, computational biology, probability and statistics. The symposium will also be an occasion to celebrate two milestones: Simon Tavaré’s 70th birthday and the 5th anniversary of the Irving Institute for Cancer Dynamics.
Confirmed speakers include: Sam Aparicio, Elham Azizi, David Blei, Andrew Blumberg, Ivan Corwin, Christina Curtis, Alison Etheridge, Trevor Graham, Robert Griffiths, John Marioni, Magnus Nordborg, Jim Pitman, Darryl Shibata, Sanja Vickovic, John Wakeley, and Bin Yu. Further details to be announced.
Registration for the “Mathematical and Computational Methods in Cancer and Biology: A Celebration of the 5th Anniversary of the IICD and Simon Tavaré’s 70th” symposium is now open. Possibility to submit a poster abstract.
