ECTB 2018 speakers

Join the 3rd European Conference on Translational Bioinformatics: Biomedical Big Data Supporting Precision Medicine

The conference will be held at Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) on April 16-17th 2018. This meeting follows on from the success of the European Conference on Translational Bioinformatics (ECTB) series hold in 2016 at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark; and in 2017 at the European Bioinformatics Institute, UK. As in past editions, the 2018 meeting will bring together scientists, developers, and entrepreneurs who are interested in translating genomics and bioinformatics research into healthcare tools and services. The meeting will be relevant for researchers, computational biologists and entrepreneurs from start-ups and established companies interested in epidemiology, cancer genomics and precision medicine.

The Conference is organized by the GRIB (IMIM-UPF) jointly with BSC and supported by the EU project MedBioinformatics and the Spanish Institute of Bioinformatics (INB).
