Internships Article

The ISCB-SC Education and Internships committee do great work including running the internships program. Each year the EIC matches students in developing countries with willing labs in Europe or Australia. With the introduction of the Anna Tramontano fellowship they will start to have the financial support needed to increase this program. The paper we published in PLOS Computational Biology describes the program but the committee is happy to answer any questions. Also if you have room in your laboratory for an intern, the program is always looking for willing PIs.

Student Council Symposium-Africa 2017

Every other year the ISCB-SC runs four Student Council Symposia, US (co-located with ISMB), Europe (co0located with ECCB), Latin America (co-located with ISCB-LA) and most recently Africa (co-located with ISCB-Africa). I had the pleasure of helping to organize this year’s SCS-Africa meeting. The symposium was a great success and details about the talks held can be found in the conference highlights that we published in F1000Research.

Elected to the ISCB Board of Directors

The votes are in, and I have been elected the ISCB Student Council Representative to the ISCB Board of Directors. This role is to be the liaison between the executive team of the student council and the board directors of the ISCB (our parent organization). I will officially take the post in January but I am already looking forward to further strengthening the cooperation between ISCB and the student council. Thank you all who voted!
