Welcome

Join us for a three week lecture/laboratory course for biologists and non-biologists, focusing on skills development and career mentoring, presented by the Center for Complex Biological Systems of the University of California, Irvine.

The intensive course will take place on the UCI campus from January 22-Feb 8, 2019 and will include lectures, laboratory modules, and a variety of skill-building exercises aimed at researchers of all levels from graduate school through faculty and industry researchers.  We anticipate a class size of approximately 20.  To learn more about the course philosophy, curriculum, and instructors, click on the menu links.

The course is funded by the National Institute for General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health through the Innovative Programs to Enhance Research Training (IPERT) initiative.  This grant provides funds to reimburse U.S. citizens and permanent residents for travel and lodging/subsistence.  A modest registration fee will be charged to cover on-site meals and refreshments.  Fellowships are available to defray the registration costs of diverse, disabled or under-represented participants.  For more information see the page on course fees.

An application portal will be available soon.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
