Volunteering in the ISCB Student Council (ISCBSC)

I first learned about the ISCBSC when I attended the Student Council Symposium 2013 which preceded the ISMC/ECCB conference in Berlin, Germany. I was really impressed by the motivation and professionalism with which undergraduate and graduate students from all around the world jointly organized a very inspiring symposium. Back then I decided that I would like to support the ISCBSC as a volunteer and today I am happy to serve as the ISCBSC’s Vice Chair.

For further information about the ISCBSC, check our website. If you would like to volunteer in the Student Council, you can either fill in this form or contact me directly and I will put you in touch with the Student Council’s Volunteers Committee.
