OLISSIPO Twin Seminar III
We are happy to announce the next OLISSIPO Twin Seminar on Computational Biology – Protein driven machine learning and network approaches for precision medicine – which will take place online on 10 February 2022, 13:00-14:30 (WEST – Lisbon) / 14:00-15:30 (CEST). This seminar will be delivered by Emanuel Gonçalves (INESC-ID and Instituto Superior Técnico) and Pedro Beltrão (ETH Zürich), and chaired by Thomas Naake (EMBL).
OLISSIPO – Fostering Computational Biology Research and Innovation in Lisbon – is an international research project funded by the European Commission within its H2020 Research and Innovation programme, and aims to enhance the competences in Computational Biology at INESC-ID and – though its strong link to Instituto Superior Técnico / Universidade de Lisboa – to create an international pole of excellence in multi-disciplinary science in Portugal. OLISSIPO is coordinated by Susana Vinga, INESC-ID researcher and member of its Board of Directors, as well as Associate Professor at Instituto Superior Técnico.
The Twin Seminars contribute to disseminate the scientific work and expertise of INESC-ID and all the Consortium that includes Inria, ETH Zürich and EMBL. These seminars comprise two short presentations, one researcher from Lisbon and one from a twin international institution working on similar topics in Computational Biology, and are open to anyone interested in computational biology.
