Developing the Next Generation of Computational Biologists

It is the role of professional societies like the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) to allow the next generation of young researchers to achieve their full potential. Regional Student Groups are a great vehicle for students and young researchers to develop their careers further.

Last 8th October 2014 I was honoured to give a keynote speech at the 1st Student Symposium on Computational Biology and Life Sciences at the University of South Wales, near Cardiff. This event was organised by UK’s Regional Student Group, a newly established exciting initiative that brings together Computational Biology students from across the UK. My role in the founding of the ISCB’s Student Council and my current involvement in ISCB’s Board of Directors have influenced some of my most defining personal career experiences. I highlight how these experiences have determined some of my greatest successes and how being involved in Regional Student Groups like this one can make a difference.
