Research Integration

The SDCSB oversees a number of innovative programs to ensure cohesiveness and synergy of center activities across its various components. During the winter quarter, we hold our Annual Scientific Retreat at the UCLA Conference Center in Lake Arrowhead (also 20162015 and 2014).

In 2015, we initiated the SDCSB’s Quarterly Systems-to-Synthesis Meeting (also Spring 2015) which features short talks by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from labs throughout the SDCSB. In past years, we have organized weekly events such as the Greatest Hits in Systems Biology journal club.

In 2014, the SDCSB co-hosted to National Centers for Systems Biology Annual Meeting, which took place July 17 – 18, 2014 along with the UCSF Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology. Representatives from all 14 centers attended along with Drs. Peter Lyster and Sarah Dunsmore from NIGMS.
