The Richard and Loan Hill Department of Bioengineering is hosting the first annual UIC Center for Bioinformatics and Quantitative Biology Research Day on March 16.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Student Center West in the Thompson Room. The CBQB Research Day will feature a keynote presentation, along with poster and oral presentations from both graduate and undergraduate students.

All undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows/research associates at UIC who are researching bioinformatics and quantitative biology research are encouraged to submit an abstract and participate.

The CBQB Research Day’s goal is to increase awareness of work where bioinformatics, computational biology, and quantitative biology can play a critical role. The organizers hope the research presented will include a broad field of topics, including different size and time scales of molecules, networks, cells, tissue, and ecological communities.

The deadline to register for the event is March 12. Any students interested in submitting an abstract to present at the research day must do so by March 4.

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research is sponsoring a monetary award for the best poster and oral presentations at the event.
