MaCSBio Science Day 2017
The second MaCSBio Science Day was organized on Friday, June 9th 2017.
The theme of the meeting was ‘Extending Networks’ and was focused on fostering and expanding our collaborations at Maastricht University and beyond.
It is 09:30 in the morning when the first guests are coming in. In no time the small Banditos-café at Oxfordlaan 55 is filled. Registration is going along smoothly while the final preparations are being made in the Jo Ritzenzaal.
Dr. Thomas Burwick
From 1992 to 1994, dr. Burwick was participating in the meetings of the Stanford Parallel Distributed Processing (PDP) group, his research interest shifted towards understanding biological and computational intelligence. From 1995 to 1998, he headed the Dynamical Systems Group and the Learning Systems Group of the Institute for Neural Computation, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany.
Dr. Adil Mardinoglu
Dr. Adil Mardinoglu is an expert in the field of Systems Biology and Bioinformatics. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Istanbul Technical University, Turkey in Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering and his Ph.D. from Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland in drug targeting applications.

During the MaCSBio Science Day we organize meetings of three of our existing Peer Groups. These Peer Groups allow researchers who are working with similar methods or on closely related topics to meet and discuss common challenges in an informal setting.
These Peer Groups allow researchers who are working with similar methods or on closely related topics to meet and discuss common challenges in an informal setting. Although the MaCSBio Science Day 2017 has already past, the Peer groups are still active and you can still subscribe.
Do you face (methodological) challenges in your research that you cannot solve on your own? Want to experience what a peer group is? Sign up for the MaCSBio Peer Groups.
The MaCSBio Science Day hosted the following three peer groups:
RNA-seq data analysis
Focuses on the problems faced in the processing, analysis and other technical aspects of RNA-sequencing data.
Allows participants to introduce and discuss new or existing tools and applications for network visualization and analysis in the study of biology and medicine.
Computational models and complex systems in neuroscience
Focuses on problems and solutions in computational neuroscience and shapes future directions for computational models and complex systems in neuroscience.
