Quantitative biology institute
Coordinated by Nevan Krogan, The Quantitative Biosciences Institute (QBI) at the University of California-San Francisco (UCSF) seeks transformative results in biomedicine by supporting fundamental quantitative research in the biological sciences through significant collaborative efforts.
Following our joint meeting in September 2019, as both institutes share the same interests and focus on quantitative biology, a memorendum of understanding was signed to join forces for research in this field.
Events and fundings
In addition to the MOU we signed together, we decided to strengthen our collaboration with the QBI through different actions :
- In spring 2020, we launched a joint call for application, which led to the funding of 4 collaborative projects between teams from our network with ones from the QBI.
- In December 2020, an online joint symposium will be the opportunity for researchers from both institutes to present their work around "Complex Biological Phenomenon and Quantitative Approaches". We hope to repeat these joint meetings on an annual basis.
