2018 CSBC/PS-ON Annual Investigators Meeting
The Annual Investigators Meeting is scheduled for September 25-28, 2018 at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD. The annual investigators meeting is intended to catalyze collaboration among investigators from the Cancer Systems Biology Consortium (CSBC) and Physical Sciences – Oncology Network (PS-ON), as well as provide an opportunity to hear presentations on and discuss new data, resources and tools that are available to the community. Both the PS-ON and CSBC program are trans/inter-disciplinary programs that bring quantitative and computational sciences to cancer biology, with the PS-ON focused on the intersection of physical sciences and oncology and the CSBC focused on systems biology approaches to cancer. The 2018 meeting was collaboratively planned by a steering committee comprising PS-ON investigators (David Odde and Jonathan Licht), CSBC investigators (Andrea Bild and Trey Ideker), a patient advocate (Carole Baas), Sage Bionetworks (Julie Bletz) and NCI Program Staff (Shannon Hughes, Nas Zahir, Elyse Gillen, and Erin Wetzel).

University of Minnesota Workshop: Modeling Cellular Mechanics in Cancer
The University of Minnesota will be holding a workshop on Modeling Cellular Mechanics in Cancer which will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 2-4, 2018. Topics to be covered include cell adhesion & migration mechanics, cell growth & proliferation mechanics, and the mechanics of cell signaling.
Each center and project is invited to nominate one individual to attend this workshop. UMN can cover the cost of lodging for two nights and will host a dinner on May 3rd. Other expenses will be the responsibility of the attendee. Please nominate attendees by emailing Bo Connelly, UMN PSOC Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org your nominee's name, title, and a short description of their research interests.
