"The SC is a platform that provides space for everyone. As we undertake our new roles, my team and I hope to carry on the excellent efforts made by our Regional Student Groups (RSGs) and members across the globe to make the field of computational biology more inclusive and welcoming. We hope our work will help build connections between students and researchers across both academic and industrial sectors.” — Nazeefa
