I am writing this email to invite you to the 2nd Systems Biology Research Panel in GMU, Fairfax, May 5th (10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m) in Johnson center 3rd Floor Meeting Rm D (FAIRFAX). Please note change of location form the previously distributed advertisement.
We will have an outstanding speaker from Singapore, Dr.Kuznetsov, well known for his bioinformatics-inspired insights in optimizing the search for novel biomarkers of tumorigenesis. We will also have some interesting short presentations from the Molecular & Microbiology and Math departments (see program below this e-mail). Hope to see you there - pizza and coffee will be provided
With best regards,
Dr. Ancha Baranova
