About

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

Students from UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, UCSF, and Stanford NCCB produce a one-day symposium of student and industry talks, a poster session, and networking opportunities that encompass all fields related to computational biology.

The 2017 NCCB symposium will take place on Saturday, October 7th on Science Hill at the University of California Santa Cruz.

Faculty Speaker

Angela Brooks

Angela Brooks is an Assistant Professor of Biomolecular Engineering at UC Santa Cruz whose research group focuses on identifying cancer genome alterations that disrupt gene regulation, particularly through the regulation of RNA splicing. They are developing computational approaches to analyze genome and transcriptome sequencing data and developing high-throughput experimental approaches to characterize the functional impact of cancer variants. Dr. Brooks received her Ph.D. in molecular and cell biology with a designated emphasis in computational and genomic biology at UC Berkeley with Dr. Steven Brenner, then was a postdoctoral fellow at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Broad Institute in the laboratory of Dr. Matthew Meyerson. In recognition of her work, Dr. Brooks was named a Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation Merck Fellow and also received the Dale F. Frey Award for Breakthrough Scientists.

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