ISMB Retreat 2013

Tuesday 30 June and Thursday 4 July

   
About the Retreat Registration Further information for attendees

The aim of the retreat is to explore our links to biology, to build connections between ISMB members and to encourage collaboration. The retreat aims to give the strongest voice to students and postdocs at UCL and Birkbeck.

The 5th ISMB Retreat took place on 3rd and 4th July 2015 at Robinson College, Cambridge. The report can be viewed here.
