Symposium to examine 'Frontiers in Biological Systems'

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- One of the nation's newest and most innovative biotechnology centers, the New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences, will open in June with a full schedule of scientific and community events, including a science and industry symposium featuring world renowned researchers in the fields of genomics, neuroscience and biomedical informatics.

Nobel Laureate Paul Greengard, Ph.D., winner of the 2000 Noble Prize in Physiology or Medicine and professor of molecular and cellular neuroscience at The Rockefeller University, will be among the distinguished speakers at the "Frontiers in Biological Systems" symposium to be held June 13-15 in the Center of Excellence and the Hyatt Regency in Buffalo.

Greengard is renowned for his groundbreaking work on the molecular and cellular function of neurons. Other featured presenters will include distinguished scientists Charles Cantor, Ph.D., chief scientific officer at SEQUENOM, a leading high-performance DNA analysis company based in San Diego, and Andrea Califano, Ph.D., professor of biomedical informatics at Columbia University, where he directs the Columbia MAGNet Center, one of seven National Centers for Biomedical Computing funded by the National Institutes of Health.

Cantor is author of the first textbook on genomics, "The Science and Technology of the Human Genome Project." Califano is a pioneer in the field of computational biology.
