Applications open to SyMDROID Summer School on Systems Medicine

SyMDROID will provide you with training and education across clinical, molecular biological, data science, as well as ethical, legal, and social research. It will foster your interdisciplinary connection to other young researchers working in these fields. Renowned experts from different fields will not only give inspiring lectures, but will also engage with you in both direct and moderated discussions on diverse topics important for systems medicine. Importantly, you will have plenty of opportunities to engage in networking and hands-on work (e.g., during the interdisciplinary hackathon) in groups among your peers. SyMDROID provides a unique forum for horizontal exchange of expertise. The topic of SyMDROID (oncological and immunological diseases) as well as the involvement of clinical research groups, enables you to deepen your systems medicine knowledge using clinically relevant use cases and data provided by said groups.

SyMDROID will be hosted at the TWINCORE in Hannover, Germany from November 1st to November 5th 2021. Travel stipends are available and hotel rooms will be provided, if necessary. Please send your application including a letter of motivation, a current CV, and an abstract on your contribution (talk and poster) via email to symdroid@plri.de no later than July 31st 2021. The letter of motivation should contain a brief descriptions of your studies or research (whichever applicable), an explanation of relevance to the topic of SyMDROID, and it should describe the need and added value of the interdisciplinary exchange during SyMDROID, ideally outlining self-defined learning goals. Your application will be assessed by a board of reviewers consisting of experts in systems medicine and related fields. You can expect a decision on your application by end of August.
