Student Council Symposium

First Keynote Announced: Prof. Debora Marks

Debora Marks is a computational biologist, a professor at Harvard University in the Departments of Systems Biology and Biomedical Informatics. She runs a vibrant new lab focused on computational approaches to predict effects of genetic variation and its impact on disease risk and drug response. In her early research, she made important discoveries in the field of microRNAs and gene regulation. More recently, she made breakthrough advances on predicting three-dimensional protein and RNA structures from sequences alone. She won the Overton Prize in 2016 and is recruiting!.
