CCSB Symposium - April 22, 2024

Main content start

We look forward to seeing you at the Stanford Cancer Systems Biology Symposium on Monday, April 22, 2024!

The conference is designed for participants to explore the systems biology approach to understanding cancer progression and treatment response. This year's theme is computational methods in single-cell and spatial analysis.
Registration is required ahead of time for this in-person and online event.  Please note that the registration site will close on Wednesday, April 17 at 5pm PST.

Please contact Corinne Beck at corinnebeck@stanford.edu with any questions or comments.
