The mission of the ISCB Student Council is to promote the development of the next generation of computational biologists. We achieve our goal through provision of scientific events, networking opportunities, soft-skills training, educational resources and career advice, while attempting to influence policy processes affecting science and education.
Student Council Executive Team
The positions in the Student Council Executive Team (ET) are filled by the elected leaders. The key role of the ET is the sustainable development of the Student Council and its Regional Student Groups (RSGs) and the coordination of all activities. For this purpose several committees are established that are chaired and occupied by SC members. The SCET is responsible for managing these committees. The colored lines in the organizational chart represent which ET member has the final responsibility of each of the committees.
The events teams mainly focus on events coordinated with ISCB-related events (ISMB, ECCB, ASBCB, ISCB-LA), such as the Student Council Symposium (SCS), European Student Council Symposium (ESCS), Student Council Symposium - Latin America (LA-SCS) and Student Council Symposium - Africa (SCS Africa) and we now hope to take up the challenge and increase the SC presence further.
The standing committees focus on sustaining the SC and its RSGs. These include the Education, Fundraising, Outreach, Web and RSG committees. Visit them here.
