Systems Biology of Infection Symposium

This international conference will focus on concepts and methodologies in Systems Biology of Infection, offering the unique opportunity for researchers at all levels to discuss the latest topics in this rapidly emerging field.

It will be held at the spectacularly located Centro Stefano Franscini conference centre at Monte Verità, overlooking Lake Maggiore in Ticino, Switzerland. The program includes invited speakers who are leaders in the field, as well as selected short talks and posters from participants.

The conference is limited to 100 participants. As we expect more applicants than there are places, we highly encourage pre-registration and submission of an abstract.
