We are happy to announce that “The 3rd Annual Louisiana Conference on Computational Biology & Bioinformatics” will be held on April 17 & 18, 2015 at the LSU Digital Media Center (DMC), LSU Baton Rouge. The conference is co-sponsored by the Louisiana Biomedical Research Network (LBRN), the LSU-Tulane Center for Experimental Infectious Disease Research, the Center for Computation and Technology (CCT), and the LSU Office of Research & Economic Development (ORED). The conference aims to expose Louisiana to the cutting edge of Computational Biology, Bioinformatics Research and Applications while also providing a platform for exchange of information and technical knowledge among Louisiana-based scientists involved in different aspects of computational biology & bioinformatics.
The Conference program includes four Keynote speakers highlighting each of four thematic sessions identified by the Scientific Committee. The meeting will provide an opportunity to exchange practical information and facilitate future collaborations among attendees.
We are very excited about this meeting and look forward tour enthusiastic participation! We look forward to your participation in this effort to promote and enhance bioinformatics in Louisiana.

The purpose of this new program is to provide an additional opportunity for junior and senior LBRN PUI faculty to engage in clinical and translational research. It is specifically linked to LA CaTS through collaboration of faculty, training opportunities, infrastructural resources and partial funding. It is targeted at faculty with an interest to extend their research findings into translational and clinical studies. This should be an especially intriguing opportunity to bioinformatics problems related to diagnosis and treatment.
The Online Form will become available in early January, 2015 for the Letters of Intent to be submitted. We’re using an online submission system instead of emailing completed proposals.
All awards are pending funding.

The purpose of these RFA is to solicit new start-up and shared instrumentation funds as well as for new pilot and full projects for the proposed new grant period. The selection and distribution of these projects by the Steering Committee will be based on the quality of the proposals and the needs of the INBRE program. Proposed projects should be consistent with the program’s focal research areas.
The Online Form is closed as the deadline for the Letters of Intent has been reached. If you completed the initial form, you will have received an email with instructions. This year we’re using an online submission system instead of emailing completed proposals.
All awards are pending funding.
