About

THE NCCB is the Northern California Computational Biology student group for PhD, masters, and undergraduate students based in Northern California.

Students from five UC campuses (Berkeley, Davis, Merced, Santa Cruz, and San Francisco), plus Stanford University, produce a one-day symposium including student talks, a poster session, an industry discussion panel, and networking opportunities encompassing all fields related to computational biology.

The 2018 NCCB symposium will take place on Saturday, October 6th in Genentech Hall at the University of California, San Francisco Mission Bay campus.

Faculty Speaker

Matt Spitzer

Matt Spitzer is an Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at UC San Francisco. His research group focuses on developing our understanding of how the immune system coordinates responses across an entire organism. His work on tumor immunology combines experimental immunology and cancer biology with computation to understand how the immune system responds to tumors, and to rationally initiate curative immune responses against cancer. Dr. Spitzer received his PhD in Immunology from Stanford University with Dr. Gary Nolan and Dr. Edgar Engleman. In 2016, Dr. Spitzer moved to UCSF as a UCSF Parker Fellow and a Sandler Faculty Fellow.

For his keynote faculty lecture opening the NCCB conference, Dr. Spitzer will discuss his research as well as pass on some knowledge to young scientists.
