The Workshop aims to highlight the contribution of engineering and computational methods in advancing biological and health sciences. It does so by bringing together top scientists to present their research in advanced genomics, bioinformatics, biomedical engineering and neuroscience along with short presentations from four of the ARCHER fellows.
The workshop is organized in the context of ARCHERS (https://archers.iesl.forth.gr/), a major project implemented by FORTH with the exclusive donation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). Through ARCHERS, over 100 young doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers have been supported over the past four and a half years and have carried out cutting-edge research in the Institutes of FORTH across a broad range of interdisciplinary thematics including preservation of cultural heritage and tackling of societal challenges such as environment, clean energy and health.
