TranSYS Online Training School

Sunday 22nd – Friday 27th November 2020

A cornerstone of Precision Medicine (PM) is comprehensive knowledge retrieval about the targeted individuals. Molecular identification and characterisation of patients is a high priority. Existing data in today’s digital universe offers tremendous opportunities to achieve this but extracting insights and information from multiple heterogeneous and interdependent data in PM, requires new systems analytics, moving beyond classical algorithmic or mechanical processes and validation against disease models. Through a high-level multidisciplinary training programme, TranSYS aims to close the skills and knowledge gap that professionals and stakeholders in PM observe on a daily basis.

In particular, TranSYS’ 1st training school focuses on “preclinical science and molecular medicine”, addressing anyone who is interested in advancing approaches for the detection, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of complex diseases; linking experimental work in different disease areas with in silico and multi-scale modeling to maximize health benefits of clinical science discoveries and molecular insights.

Online and free to attend. Register here.

Our first training school, now online due to COVID, is organised by the TranSYS consortium and the University of Ljubljana Faculty of Medicine. This event offers researchers and students broad training opportunities in scientific and transferable skills such as study design & protocol, data generation & technology, mining of published data, communication & dissemination and includes featured workshops including From experiment to clinic and From Sample to Insight. Official language will be English. Registration is required.
