On October 25th, 2018, Utrecht University will host a symposium on the topic of interdisciplinary research between life sciences and natural sciences, often called quantitative biology (QBio).
The speakers, from left to right: Dr. Siddhart Deshpande, Prof. Dr. Sjoerd Verduyn Lunel, Dr. Katharina Sonnen, Prof. Dr. Thomas Debray, Prof. Dr Joana Gonçalves
The final programme and more information is now available in the booklet. In short, registration will start on the 5th at 10.30, and we'll start the meeting at 11.00.

A little bit earlier in spring this year, we are once again happy to invite you for the annual NVTB-retreat on the 5th and 6th of April (2018) in Schoorl. We aim for a pleasant, informal, and yet informative meeting where scientists and students working in Theoretical Biology will present and discuss their research. As in previous years, the meeting is held at Dopersduin, located at ...
Together with the Graduate School of Life Sciences and Utrecht University Complex System Studies, we are happy to announce the Winter Class on 'Modeling Growth and Metabolism of microorganisms'! We think this Winter Class will be interesting for PhD students with a background in Theoretical or Computational Biology, whose main focus is on theory.
We are once again happy to invite you for the annual NVTB-retreat on 1 and 2 June, 2017 in Schoorl.

The Dutch Society for Theoretical Biology (NVTB) is a biological society focussing on theoretical, mathematical, computational, and philosophical biology. The society comprises 200 members from several universities, institutes and other organisations. The main aim of the society is to stimulate and represent theoretical biology in its broadest sense in the Netherlands.
