12th Annual International Symposium Addresses Systems Biology and the Brain

It’s an exciting time to be discussing brain research, given the Brain Activity Map project that the Obama administration is proposing. You won’t want to miss what will be a dynamic Symposium on a hot topic, so join us and our distinguished speakers.

Join a distinguished group of researchers and experts in Seattle for Institute for Systems Biology’s (ISB) 12th Annual Symposium, a two-day dialogue about the brain and how using a systems approach can help decipher some of its complexities.

The Symposium will take place on April 14-15, 2013, at ISB’s state-of-the-art facilities in the South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle. We welcome all who are interested in hearing from brain researchers from institutions such as University of Utah, Allen Institute for Brain Science, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of California, Los Angeles, Rockefeller University, Indiana University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Salk Institute, Institute for Systems Biology, Emory University, and more.
