Innovation Lab: Systems Biology for the Cancer Microbiome

April 29th - May 3rd, 2019

Beaver Hollow Conference Center

The 2019 Innovation Lab: Systems Biology for the Cancer Microbiome is jointly organized by the National Cancer Institute and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to explore the intersection of systems biology and the cancer microbiome. Microbiome researchers have utilized sophisticated bioinformatic approaches to analyze and integrate various data types but have found it much more challenging to effectively build models that provide insights into the complex interactions that can lead to emergent systems-level behaviors. Cancer systems biologists bring together experimental cancer biology with mathematical modeling to understand cancer processes, but as a field has made little headway into incorporating the impact of the microbiome on the prevention, initiation, and progression of cancer. The Innovation Lab: Systems Biology for the Cancer Microbiome will bring together experts from a variety of fields to form new collaborations, ideate and refine new projects, and identify opportunities to accelerate research on the influence of the microbiome in cancer. A more detailed description can be found here (Participant Information).

This five-day event brings together researchers from diverse fields to meet, interact and form interdisciplinary teams. The goal of the thinktank is to lay the groundwork for future advances in the study of the microbiome in cancer. The teams--which may evolve and change over the course of the event--will generate ideas for pilot projects that tackle priority problems at the interface of cancer systems biology and the microbiome. The event will be facilitated and the teams will pitch their ideas to he whole group, and receive constructive feedback from mentors to refine their ideas during the innovation lab.
