The Summer School „COME“ will take place April 1st to April 5th at the University Medical Center Hamburg. COME will provide the opportunity to learn and network in an interdisciplinary environment in the cardiovascular field integrating knowledge from epidemiology, cohort studies, bioinformatics, statistics, and molecular biology with a focus on cardiovascular disease. It will bridge the gap between theory and practice of systems medicine approaches in clincial, molecular, and bioinformatics research.
In an interdisciplinary team of qualified lecturers from cardiovascular research, the attendees (doctoral students and postdocs) will learn the basics of how high throughput omics data generated from study cohorts of myocardial infarction, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation are analyzed and integrated by mathematical models to gain insight into the pathophysiology of disease and improve prediction of incident disease and outcome. Systems biology tools will be used to demonstrate possible tranlsational approaches from the underpinnings of disease to implications in patient care.
The workshop is indended for young researchers (doctoral students and postdocs) from interdisciplinary areas of cardiovascular research (biology, medicine, bioinformatics, biostatistics, epidemiology, public health).
If you are interested in attending, please submit your application:
- Research abstract (max. 500 words)
- Motivation letter (max. 500 words)
- Curriculium Vitae
Deadline for submission is January 31, 2019.
Successful applicants will receive a full coverage of registration and hotel, and a travel award (max. 500€).
