The OpenMultiMed Training School: Computational Tools for Systems Medicine (Porto, February 21-23, 2017) will provide training in concepts, methods and computational tools for multiscale systems medicine. Systems medicine is an emerging interdisciplinary framework that aims to improve our understanding, prevention and treatment of complex diseases by integrating knowledge and data across multiple levels of biomedical organization.
The Training School, organized by the OpenMultiMed CA15120 (Open Multiscale Systems Medicine, COST Action CA15120) http://www.cost.eu/COST_Actions/ca/CA15120, represents a unique opportunity to involve and train early-career researchers in multiscale systems medicine and to reduce the methodological and knowledge gaps between biomedical and computational scientists in this transdisciplinary field.
Trainee grants for attending the TS are available (deadline for applications Feb 9, 2017): Trainee grants
