Hey there! Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to connect with other early-career researchers who share your passion for bioinformatics and computational biology? Look no further than the Student Council (SC)!

The SC is a dynamic international community that offers a variety of teams and committees designed to support and provide resources for students. Whether you're interested in networking, professional development, or just connecting with other students in your field, the SC has something for you.

As part of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB), the SC works closely with the ISCB leadership to achieve our goals. We're always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join our community and help us make a difference in the field of bioinformatics and computational biology.

So why not get involved today? Contact our volunteer coordinator to learn more about how you can join the Student Council and become part of this vibrant and supportive community. We can't wait to hear from you!

There are three ways to become a member:

  • Simply sign up by visiting the following link (, and let us know your interests to get involved with our committees
