From bioinformatics analyzing genomes and molecular modeling designing new drugs through medical imaging catching glimpses of the interior of our body and data systems operating medical devices to telemedicine and connected health technologies providing healthcare services remotely ―
IT has penetrated into perhaps any field of today's biology and medicine. At Future Biotech Winter Retreat 2018, we will address current issues accompanying computational biology and digital health.

We invite leading scientists from all over the globe to present talks at the event, so the official language of Winter Retreat 2018 is English.

We proudly announce that Future Biotech Winter Retreat 2018 is supported by the British Council. Our cooperation ensures participation of some most prominent British scientists who will add high value to the event.
Join us on January 22–27 in Sochi
Application for free participation is closed. You can still purchase participation without selection.

Beyond just a retreat
Beyond our core program we will organize a variety of evening events: round tables, communication sections, discussions in the bar and popular science master classes. Join our evening program: we will watch movies, socialize and learn more. The last night of the retreat, do not miss our closing party.
We invite everyone who is interested in biology, biotechnology and biomedicine — from the perspective of both science and commercialisation.

60 applicants who pass our strict selection will not pay the registration fee, and will enjoy free accommodation and meals (travel costs are not included).

Application is closed. Selection results will be announced on 20 December 2017.

You are also welcome to purchase participation without selection. You may select full program or attend just one day of the school. Please contact Denis Kurek directly by pressing "Purchase".
