e:Med Summer School 2019

In the summer school “Forging Trails from Cells to Hospitals - Linking Systems Biology and Precision Medicine in the Black Forest (ForCeHLSByMed)”, junior researchers from the field of medical sciences and systems biology will have the opportunity to present their work and to interact with nine invited experts whose research area is at the intersection of systems biology, precision medicine and medical statistics.

The focus will be on developing the participants' research agendas in systems medicine, thus strengthening the links between medical research and systems biology. The invited experts from different areas of systems medicine will present current and interdisciplinary approaches.

The summer school is organized by the IMBI Freiburg, supported by the section “Medical Bioinformatics and Systems Biology” of the GMDS e.V., and will take place from 14th to 17th of May 2019 in the Black Forest near Freiburg in south-western Germany. Up to 20 junior researchers from the field of medicine, systems biology and medical data science can participate. The journey to the venue within Germany, course participation and accommodation for the participants will be covered by BMBF funding.
