About Simons Foundation Lectures

Simons Foundation Lectures are free public colloquia related to basic science and mathematics. These high-level talks are intended for professors, students, postdocs and business professionals, but interested people from the metropolitan area are welcome as well.

This Biotech Symposium will focus on perspectives on big data in biology from leading practitioners in the field. Past Biotech Symposia topics have included single nucleotide polymorphism detection, diffusion magnetic resonance imaging, structural variant detections and resting state fMRI.  Future symposia will focus on related bioinformatics and neuroimaging topics.
