CSBi Oktoberfest Poster Session - October 2006
Continuing with the "Oktoberfest" theme enjoyed by last year poster session participants, CSBi will host its third annual poster session on October 19, 2006. This event is open to anyone in the MIT community with an interest in systems biology.

Merck/CSBi Fellowship Meeting - June 2006
The event was sponsored by MIT’s Computational & Systems Biology initiative and Merck Research Labs.

CSBi Poster Session - November 2005
The second annual CSBi poster session was held on November 1st, 2005 in Walker Memorial Lounge with an "Oktoberfest" theme. CSBi faculty presented 3 minute summaries of their research and graduate students and postdocs presented posters. The community enjoyed the "Oktoberfest" style food and the opportunity to discuss their research with the new students.

Merck/CSBi Poster Session and Meeting - August 2005
On Wednesday, August 17th, 2005, CSBi and Merck held its annual meeting centered around the research of the Merck/CSBi fellows at MIT. The afternoon featured presentations by the postdoctoral fellows and a keynote address by Thomas Begley from SUNY - Albany featuring his work on computational methods to identify toxicity modulating hot spots and protein networks. The meeting took place at the Merck Research Laboratories in Boston and concluded with a poster session in the atrium.

CSBi Poster Session - November 2004
The CSBi graduate education committee launched the first in a series of presentations designed to highlight CSBi research activities to graduate students and postdocs throughout MIT. This event featured short oral and poster presentations by a broad range of engineering and science faculty, students and postdocs. The goal of the event was to expose the new CSBi PhD students and interested researchers to the breadth of systems biology research at MIT. Student-focused CSBi community events offer an excellent framework to catalyze collaborations among synergistic by heretofore disparate groups of investigators at MIT.

BBQ and Poster Session - Summer 2003
In July 2003, CSBi hosted a BBQ and poster session at the Kresge Auditorium with over 200 MIT affiliates, including CSBi faculty, staff and students, interested in systems biology. In addition to enjoying the food and the sounds of the reggae band, Pressure Cooker, the poster session highlighted the ongoing research of CSBi labs ranging from DNA repair and network dynamics to computational analysis of proteins and neural networks.
