About

The ISCB Student Council (ISCBSC) is a vibrant international student group made of members from around the world who share a passion for bioinformatics and computational biology. The ISCBSC is organised into teams and committees, each with its own tasks and responsibilities, designed to provide students with support and resources. This is how we are currently organised:

Executive Team

, The ISCBSC is led by an Executive Team (ET) composed of a Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, diversity & inclusion chair and ISCB Board of Directors Representative. The ET is elected by the Student Council membership body for two-years term. The key role of the ET is the sustainable development of the Student Council and its Regional Student Groups (RSGs), and the coordination of all activities. For this purpose, several committees are established and our ET is responsible for managing these committees.
