Building Bridges in Biology Symposium

Event Slider

The Building Bridges in Biology Symposium brings together scientists from different fields in biology, ranging from cell and molecular biology, to development, immunology, ecology, and evolution. Each day of the symposium will not focus on a specific field or topic, but rather on overarching concepts related to how one approaches their object of study:

  • Within the system – How do biological systems depend on their components?
  • Between systems – How do biological systems interact?
  • Changes to the system – How do biological systems change upon perturbation?

The Building Bridges in Biology Symposium aims to explore biological systems from different perspectives into creating new connections and collaborations between fields.

We welcome everyone to join us on 1st-3rd of March 2023 at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC) to share their work and look at it from an entirely different perspective!
