Fourth DECXS Symposium


Come to the fourth DCEXS Symposium on November the 17th: "Innovative in silico strategies in biomedical research"

We are pleased to announce the fourth DCEXS Symposium which will be held on Tuesday, November 17th 2015, at the  Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) AUDITORIUM .

Confirmed Speakers

  • Marta Filizola (Structural and Chemical Biology, ISMMS): "New Strategies for a New Era in G Protein-Coupled Receptor Drug Discovery".
  • Joaquín Dopazo (Computational Genomics, Centro de Investigacion Principe Felipe): " Digging into thousands of variants to find disease genes in Mendelian and complex diseases"
  • Gerhard Ecker (Pharmaceutical Chemistry, University of Vienna): "Prediction of drug - transporter interaction and its exploitation in biomedical research" 
  • Alfonso Valencia (CNIO): "The mESC epigenetics network as an example of the combination of network and evolutionary analysis"
  • Mihaela Zavolan   (Biozentrum, University of Basel ): "Exploiting single cell level heterogeneity to uncover in vivo hierarchies of miRNA targets".
  • Caroline Gubser Keller   ( Novartis) : "The splice is right: RNA-seq analysis to impact drug discovery for spinal muscular atrophy"

The symposium, organized by the Department of Experimental and Health Sciences (DCEXS) and the Research Programme on Biomedical Informatics-GRIB (IMIM-UPF), will bring together leading researchers in the vibrant field of biomedical research, to explore new advances in in silico strategies.

The symposium is part of an initiative by the DCEXS to provide a forum for leading scientists working on topics included in the Department's Research Programs to present and discuss the latest results, to promote the education of young scientists, as well as catalysing scientific interactions between the DCEXS and other institutions.

Limited places

The symposium is open to everybody interested in biomedical research, and there are no registration fees. However, the number of places available are limited so you are kindly asked  to register here
