America/New York

The 11th Annual “Summer School on Computational Immunology” is part of the NIH/NIAID program on Modeling Immunity for Biodefense (MIB). The school will take place at Yale University on June 20th - 23rd, 2016 and is being organized and run by the Program for Research on Immune Modeling and Experimentation (PRiME) initiative. The 4-day summer school will be followed by a 1-day Research Symposium on Influenza Immunology: Data, Systems and Models.

This summer school is intended for experimental immunologists who desire an introduction to mathematical/computational modeling techniques and their applications to problems in immunology. Computational biology graduate students at the earliest stages of their studies are also welcome to apply.

With a focus on influenza virus immunology, the summer school provides a hands-on introduction to:
  • metadata management and standards for large scale experiments
  • R scripting approaches to data analysis techniques including PCA, clustering, differential expression
  • how to use experimentally motivated deterministic and stochastic models to explore hypotheses
  • data mining, integration and network analysis

Applications are required for attending this summer school, which has no cost except for travel and lodging. Graduate students and Postdocs can also apply for a limited number of scholarships to cover travel and lodging expenses. The application deadline for both the summer school and scholarships is 03/25/2016. The online application can be found here, and a Summer School flyer can be downloaded here.
