2005 NIGMS Systems Biology/Complexity Centers Meeting

Location: Lister Hill Center Auditorium
National Library of Medicine
Building 38A
Bethesda, MD
Start Date: 1/11/2005 1:30 PM
End Date: 1/12/2005 5:00 AM

Purpose of the Meeting: The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) is hosting the first Systems Biology Initiative annual meeting to demonstrate the multidisciplinary research projects and training programs being conducted by the NIGMS-supported national centers. This meeting aims to provide a platform for researchers both within and outside the centers to share their scientific discoveries, technological advances, new ideas, and challenges in the emerging field of systems biology. It is also the intention of the organizers to promote communication and collaboration among the participating research groups, so that good experiences are shared and difficulties are examined.
