Support for inaugural symposium to showcase the diversity of the Institute for Quantitative & Computational Biosciences (QCB), drawing on the collaborative participation of the Institute for Biological Physics, the DOE Institute for Synthetic Genomics, the Bioinformatics Graduate Program, the California NanoSystems Institute, and the Clinical Translational Sciences Institute.
The University of California System-Wide Bioengineering Symposium will be held at UCLA from June 28-30th, 2017 and will foster an interdisciplinary environment for the next generation of engineers, scientists, and clinicians to translate advances in bioengineering research to the clini, and to industry, or to address health disparity issues critical to society.
The goal of this event is to improve undergraduate education by assessing ways to make the teaching review process result in a more representative evaluation of teaching effectiveness and efforts to improve instruction. This event is aimed at bringing together those faculty invested in reconsidering and improving the teaching evaluation process on campus.
The UCLA-DOE Institute is a team of research laboratories working on fundamental research and technology developments in broad DOE mission areas ranging from microbes, to biofuels and green chemistry, to the design of new biomaterials.
The Molecular Biology Institute at UCLA is a hub for interactions between scientific groups, focused on deciphering molecular structures and identifying regulatory cross-talk in living organisms. Since its inception nearly half a century ago, the MBI has catalyzed intellectual exchange across disciplines and departmental barriers. Today this mission remains at the forefront.
The UCLA Latin American Institute is a vital regional, national, and international resource on Latin America. Since its founding in 1959, the LAI has equipped generations of leaders, professionals, and students with the information and skills required for understanding the vast and complex region of Latin America. The LAI supports research by funding grants and foreign-language instruction, and disseminates recent scholarship through conferences, workshops, public programs, teacher training, and publications.
The Center for European and Russian Studies (CERS) has a long record of excellence in advancing innovative teaching, research, and public education that enhance knowledge of the languages, cultures, and societies of modern and contemporary Europe and Russia.
