We are pleased to announce the 2013 USC PS-OC Short Course. This year, our topic is the convergence of the sciences in medicine, where biologists, engineers, mathematicians, physical scientists, and clinicians work together on tightly-integrated teams to solve biological and medical problems. We will use cancer as a motivating example, and the methods taught apply broadly across biomedicine. This course will be of broad appeal to a multidisciplinary audience, from the advanced undergraduate level to postdoctoral students and faculty. The course will be taught by established scientists working on a variety of biological and medical problems. Topics will include:

The course is open to advanced undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral students, and faculty at USC, in Southern California, and across the US.

We will have limited student travel support on a competitive basis. Please see the logistics page for further detail.
