Please join us for a two-week, Cancer Systems Biology virtual “mini” short course. 

August 2nd – 13th, 2021

The Cancer Systems Biology short course is an NIH-sponsored, didactic and practical educational experience devoted to training in systems biology, specifically through an exploration of a subset of core issues in current cancer research. It is held on the UC Irvine campus, in beautiful Southern California, and includes lectures and laboratory modules over an intensive three-week period. 

This year’s installment of the course, originally scheduled for May 2021, was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A call for applications for the 2022 installment will be released in the Fall.   

In the meantime, we are pleased to be able to offer a free, virtual “mini-course,” occurring in 10 half-day segments over two weeks in August, which is designed to expose interested participants to some of the regular course content. If you are potentially interested in joining us for the full course in 2022, and want to find out if it’s right for you, consider registering for this “mini-course”.  You may also want to join us if you are new to Systems Biology approaches. The short course is open to scientists and trainees at all levels. We strongly encourage applications from scientists and trainees with diverse backgrounds and life experiences, including those who identify as underrepresented in the biomedical field. Pre-registration is required as the space for hands-on workshop is limited.
