Mon, 2020/06/08 - Fri, 2020/06/12
Pisa, Italy

The Synthetic and Systems Biology Summer School (SSBSS) is a full-immersion five-day residential summer school at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, on cutting-edge advances in systems and synthetic biology with lectures delivered by world-renowned experts. The school provides a stimulating environment for students (from Master students to PhD students), Post-Docs, early career researches, academics and industry leaders. Participants will also have the chance to present their results (with Oral Talks and Posters), and to interact with their peers, in a friendly and constructive environment.
