Centre for Computational Biology Showcase Awards

31 October 2018

Centre for Computational Biology Showcase Awards

The LSI Centre for Computational Biology is a cross-faculty Centre dedicated to promoting and developing QMUL’s research and teaching in the field of computational biology. Our definition of this field is broad, from algorithm development for genome analysis, through to simulation and modelling of biological systems, to quantitative geography and digital health.

As part of this effort, we will be providing funding for activities that showcase QMUL’s research in this area through the CCB Showcase Award. Researchers from across the College are invited to submit proposals for funding of activities that will help promote their computational biology research. An obvious showcasing activity would be presenting relevant work at a conference or organising a symposium where QMUL researchers can present their work, but more innovative proposals are most welcome.

Proposal should be submitted online here by Friday 7th of December 2018 at the latest:

Please concisely explain the proposed activity, how it will help promote the Centre, and specify the amount of funding requested. All costs included in this grant should be directly related to the the showcasing activities. 

Proposals will be judged according to relevance to the aim of the Showcase Award and value for money, with the overall intention of promoting a broad range of the College’s computational biology research. Outcomes will be notified one week after the deadline. Recipients of showcasing awards will be expected to acknowledge the Centre for Computational Biology in their showcasing activity, and present their work at one of the regular CCB workshops.
