Computational & Systems Immunology Seminar Series 2019

Effective modeling, acquisition and mining of data have become crucial for solving important problems in
immunology. This seminar series explores novel molecular and computational approaches to
interrogating outstanding questions in immunology and related fields. Speakers are invited to share their
insights into the state-of-the-art trends and their advice on navigating a systems immunology career.

The seminar is free and open to the public. It also functions as a class called IMMUNOL 310.

When: Tuesdays at 4:30 - 5:20 PM
