Join us for the Centre for Integrative Systems Biology and Bioinformatics Open Day 2023. Please save the date – more details will follow shortly, including how to register.

 Title: Understanding Biological Systems via Modelling and Machine Learning

Date: 21 June 2023 13:30-18:30.

Venue: G16, Sir Alexander Fleming Building, Imperial College London, South Kensington



Imperial’s Centre for Integrative Systems Biology and Bioinformatics (CISBIO) brings together scientists from a wide range of different fields to develop innovative interdisciplinary approaches to understanding biological problems. Our Open Day will showcase exciting new work from researchers both guest speakers and groups within Imperial.  Our programme will highlight recent research using mathematical modelling and machine learning.  The meeting, which is in person only, is open to all but registration is required.
