Co-organized by Drs. Davide Ruggero and Sourav Bandyopadhyay of UC San Francisco, the inaugural Quantitative Biology of the Cancer Cell Symposium will be held on campus at the University of California, San Francisco on February 24-25, 2020. Under the leadership of Dr. Nevan Krogan at the Quantitative Biosciences Institute (QBI) seeks transformative results in biomedicine by supporting fundamental quantitative research in the biological sciences. In support of this mission, the symposium will focus on cutting edge new quantitative experimental and computational approaches for understanding new facets of cancer biology as well as therapeutic interventions. The Cancer Cell Map Initiative (CCMI, ccmi.org), which was jointly formed by QBI and UC San Diego, aims to create molecular maps of the cancer cell.
