Integration of biological and chemical informatics presents a real
opportunity to address some of the most exciting and challenging issues
posed by systems biology. These diverse disciplines, and their interaction,
play a crucial role in addressing key issues in drug design and discovery,
environmental sustainability, health and disease processes, and disease
prevention, diagnosis and treatment. 


Join us for a two day symposium sponsored by the BBSRC and Brunel
University, where influential leaders in bioinformatics, chemoinformatics,
systems biology and health, will present the latest developments that are
helping to shape this interdisciplinary field. This symposium is open to
those working in the field, including academics, researchers, students and
industry and will provide an excellent environment for delegates to
participate in networking activities and developing collaborative,
interdisciplinary research partnerships.
