We are completing the speaker’s list for SBHD 2016 and have held spaces for all 14 of NCSB Centers including CRSB – but we will start to fill these spots with other speakers if we do not hear from you by December 11, 2015.

CRSB will provide reimbursement for all registration, travel, hotel, and food.*

If you would like to attend the 2016 meeting, we need to hear from you right now. You will recall that that NCSB meetings themselves have been discontinued but we are combining the 2016 NCSB PI meeting with The International Conference on Systems Biology of Human Disease (SBHD; see Sarah Dunsmore’s email below). SBHD is jointly sponsored by the Harvard Program in Therapeutic Science and the BioQuant Program at the University of Heidelberg and will be held at the Broad Institute in Cambridge, MA from June 14-16, 2016.
SBHD has been held annually for nearly a decade and alternates between Boston, MA and Heidelberg, Germany. The conference takes a broad perspective on the application of systems and systematic biology to human disease and typically attracts several hundred participants from industry and academe. Repeat attendance has created a dedicated and committed SBHD community enlivened by a substantial number of new participants, ensuring an engaged and knowledgeable audience.

Note that NCSB will be responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses – as usual for our annual meetings. Registration fees for all participants in the joint meeting will be the same as those for regular SBHD attendees (TBD) although we offer a limited number of scholarships to cover the registration fees for those who are unable to pay (e.g. undergraduates) and the application details for those will be announced on the SBHD 2016 website when it is up and running.
