Misty and inspiring Winter School


05 Apr 2013

March 2013 NBIC organized a Winter School in collaboration with the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics. Nineteen participants from five different nationalities gathered in Kandersteg (CH) for a week of interesting lectures and discussions at the intersection of bioinformatics and medicine.

The lectures were very much appreciated, including the contributions from the Dutch teachers as illustrated by the feedback of participants: “very good talkers, especially Frank van Harmelen gave a very inspiring talk on semantic web (which is not that easy)” and “Talking to an expert also from the medical area, Han Brunner, who actually has interactions with patients was a great experience, made things even more interesting.”

The social programme on Wednesday included skiing and hiking in the – unfortunately misty – landscape of Switzerland.

The NBIC/SIB Winter School is part of the NBIC PhD school aimed at training and education of bioinformatics and life science researchers.
