Melbourne Wins Major Biology Conference

Melbourne will host The International Conference on Systems Biology 2014. The conference will bring 750 of the world's leading experts in the field to the city over five days, and is expected to generate $3.6 million in economic impact for Victoria.

CEO of Melbourne Convention + Visitors Bureau (MCVB) Karen Bolinger said securing the bid was a major coup for Victoria's systems biology community.

"MCVB partnered with a number of key groups for the bid process including the European Molecular Biology Laboratory Australia, the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and Bioplatforms Australia," Bolinger said.

"The International Conference on Systems Biology is the premier international conference for this scientific discipline and hosting the event in Melbourne will give the state a significant boost in publicity and standing in this field, offering local researchers the opportunity to showcase their research on a global stage."
