A Global Community

  • ISCB Student Council

    dedicated to facilitating development for students and young researchers

  • Affiliated Groups

    The ISCB Affiliates program is designed to forge links between ISCB and regional non-profit membership groups, centers, institutes and networks that involve researchers from various institutions and/or organizations within a defined geographic region involved in the advancement of bioinformatics. Such groups have regular meetings either in person or online, and an organizing body in the form of a board of directors or steering committee. If you are interested in affiliating your regional membership group, center, institute or network with ISCB, please review these guidelines (.pdf) and submit your application using the online ISCB Affiliated Group Application form. Your exploratory questions to ISCB about the appropriateness of a potential future affiliation are also welcome by Diane E. Kovats, ISCB Executive Director (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Anna Tramontano Travel Fellowship Fund

Donate Now!

The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) is pleased to announce the Anna Tramontano Fellowship Fund. The Anna Tramontano Fellowship fund was established in 2017 to honor the memory of Anna Tramontano, a renowned Italian computational biologist and long-time member of the ISCB and its board of directors, who died unexpectedly in March 2017.

Anna had a passion for facilitating the professional development and training for young researchers specifically in under-developed countries. While the loss of Anna provided a great void for ISCB, it was important for us as an organization to find a way to carry on her legacy.

The Anna Tramontano Fellowship Fund financially supports travel of students who participate in the ISCB Student Council Internship Program for Developing Nations (internships.iscbsc.org). This was program was developed in 2009 to supplement the formal education by providing students, specifically targeting under-developed nations; pursuing a degree in computational biology and bioinformatics disciplines, hands-on workplace experience. The program is fueled by established Principal Investigators (PI) who are willing to offer a summer research internship in their labs. Since its inception in 2009, the program has successfully placed eight students into internship programs.

Anna Tramontano Travel Fellowship FundThe goal of the Anna Tramontano Fellowship Fund is help reduce the financial burden to the students who are offered these internships by providing travel support. We hope that by providing financial support, reducing costs to the PIs, we will be able to increase the number of internships offered in a given year. Demand (students) continues to increase and this is an excellent way to develop our future researchers.

The Anna Tramontano Fellowship Fund is funded in part by ISCB and individual donors. We kindly request your consideration to donate to support the fund. Donate here.
