This event brings industry and academia together to share the successes and challenges of applying QSP to drug R&D while also building relationships between participants. At this event we will hear from a panel of industry experts about their career journeys and academic lightning talks on cutting-edge research. 

We're seeking poster abstracts from academic participants. Abstract submission is open to all undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral students in any computational biology field, including: quantitative biology, bioinformatics, applied mathematics, biochemistry, biophysics, biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, and chemical engineering. Please feel free to recycle used posters! Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three posters, with first place receiving $150, second place receiving $100, and third place receiving $50. 

If eligible, please submit your poster abstract while registering for the event. Three abstracts will be selected for a lightning talk. We will notify those who are selected for a lightning talk on Monday, January 27, 2020.
