Call for posters!

A great opportunity to showcase your work and network at DATA Industry Advisory Board meeting on October 12-13, 2023, in Waukegan, Illinois.

Submission deadline: Sept. 10

The Center for Data-Driven Drug Development and Treatment Assessment (DATA), an NSF-sponsored Industry-University Cooperative Research Center (IUCRC) and a unit of the Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS), is inviting students and postdocs to submit research project posters to showcase during its Industry Advisory Board (IAB) meeting on October 12-13, 2023, in Waukegan, Illinois. We are interested in student and postdoc projects that apply computational methods, data science solutions, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques to solve problems in health care, pharmacy, chemistry, and biomedical engineering, in particular in the areas of drug design, drug repositioning, and treatment assessment.

The meeting will be hosted by one of DATA industry members and will include a number of companies from the pharmaceutical, healthcare, IT, and AI startup industries, as well as representatives of governmental agencies, offering the presenters ample opportunities to network and discuss their career plans with potential employers. In addition to the poster showcase, the meeting agenda includes a career panel and research panels and roundtables focused on the use of AI in drug design and treatment optimization.

Selected presenters will be provided with travel support to participate in the entire meeting, including transportation, meals, and an overnight stay in a hotel. 

University of Michigan students of all levels (undergraduate, masters, doctorate) and postdocs are eligible to participate. Interested applicants should submit an abstract of their project(s) by September 10, 2023 using this form.
