Symposium Agenda

The Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at Howard University College of Medicine presents the second Advancing Computational Biology @ Howard University Symposium on April 8, 2016 at the Kellogg Conference Hotel @ Gallaudet University in Washington, DC.

The Symposium will highlight the important work performed by the Howard University research community as well as researchers from around the nation. Presentations will address current activities that involve computational biology and bioinformatics approaches and solutions in structural biology, genomics, and disease informatics, including big data. The program will include discussions on molecular simulation & design, genomics, as well as disease informatics and big data applications. Abstract poster presentations will cover a broad range of investigations including systems biology, data analysis, translational informatics, and the significance of these approaches to the study of social, behavioral, and biological systems. The Symposium provides a platform to communicate broadly the important computational biology and bioinformatics advances within the HU research community and those of the national scientific community while addressing the relationship between the systematic involvement of cutting edge biomedical research tools and approaches and the disproportionate share of disease burden on minorities. CME Credits will be available for attendance at the Symposium.
