CCB Seminar Series

The Center of Computational Biomedicine (CCB) at Harvard Medical School hosts a weekly seminar with a focus on current developments and outstanding challenges in computational biomedicine. See below for seminar details and information on how to nominate speakers and request to join the mailing list.

Seminar Topics: Subject areas include single-cell, spatial, and multi-omics approaches, image analysis, knowledge representation and ontologies, and computational aspects underlying the analysis of large and hard-to-manage volumes of biomedical data. CCB invites HMS-affiliated researchers and external speakers to present their work on these topics with the goal of fostering exchange and stimulating discussions between researchers, experimentalists, computational biologists, data scientists, and software developers. We welcome suggestions for future speakers! Please submit these requests via email to Ludwig Geistlinger for review.

Attendees: HMS students, postdocs, research staff and faculty interested in getting up to speed with the current state of the art of obtaining and analyzing novel types of biomedical data. Reach out to Ynnez Bestari to request to be added to the seminar mailing list. Please note, attendance is restricted to Harvard-affiliated trainees, staff and faculty.
