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.).

ISCBintel and Achievements

2019 Student Travel Fellowship Campaign

YOU can make a difference in the future of computational biology and bioinformatics by supporting tomorrow’s researchers.

Student travel fellowships help propel young investigators toward important future discoveries. Join ISCB in giving students access to the principal role models within the field and help us influence the paths of scientific careers.

As federal funding opportunities continue to decline, ISCB reaches out to YOU to help this important initiative. Each year ISCB receives over 300 travel fellowship requests. With currently available funds, we can only support approximately 70% of these requests by providing partial funding to each recipient. Making a donation to the travel fellowship fund will enable us to support even more students with higher travel awards

We continue to do all we can but there is still more to do—your contributions at any level will allow us to reach more students. By donating to ISCB student travel fellowships, you are investing in the future of our science.
