Winter School: QSB in Trieste

Winter School on Quantitative Systems Biology

New experimental techniques are opening windows on biological mechanisms inside the cell and in the brain, making these systems accessible to quantitative investigation. These advances have shown the importance of the concerted interaction of many agents in producing overall behaviors, and call for an understanding of biological functions at the systemic level. The series of Winter Schools in Quantitative Systems Biology, initiated in 2012, responds to the need to provide physicists with a broad exposure to quantitative problems in the study of living systems. The school is particularly targeted to young researchers, especially at the Ph.D and postdoc level who either work in this area or hope to do so.

The Winter School on Quantitative Systems Biology is organized by the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics from 1 to 12 December 2014. It will be directed by V. Balasubramanian (Univ. of Pennsylvania, USA and CUNY Graduate Center, USA) and A. Treves(SISSA, Italy). The School is part of the Programme in Biology between ICTP and the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS) in Bangalore, India.
