Berlin Summer Meeting

Welcome Address
The "Berlin Summer Meeting" is an annual 2-3 days meeting at the interface of experimental molecular biology and computational approaches.
It is designed to create an intense and open atmosphere, aiminig at stimulating productive interactions between various branches of biology and bringing together leading scientists and young researchers.
The inaugural meeting in 2008 will be devoted to Systems Biology. Systems Biology is a disperse and newly emerging research area. This meeting will focus on approaches that seem especially promising to elucidate biological function.
The organizing committee for 2008 consists of
Prof. Nikolaus Rajewsky (MDC -Berlin)
Prof. Hermann-Georg Holzhütter (University Medicine Berlin, Charité)
Prof. Dimitris Thanos (Biomedical Research Foundation, Academy of Athens, Greece)

Abstract applications can be submitted for Poster presentations or oral presentations. We especially encourage PhD students and PostDocs with exciting research findings to apply for a talk, since we will have a special session with talks by young researchers.
