The annual investigators meeting is intended to catalyze collaboration among investigators from the Cancer Systems Biology Consortium (CSBC) and Physical Sciences – Oncology Network (PS-ON), as well as provide an opportunity to hear presentations on and discuss new data, resources and tools that are available to the community. Both the PS-ON and CSBC program are trans/inter-disciplinary programs that bring quantitative and computational sciences to cancer biology, with the PS-ON focused on the intersection of physical sciences and oncology and the CSBC focused on systems biology approaches to cancer.

The 2018 meeting was collaboratively planned by a steering committee comprising PS-ON investigators (David Odde and Jonathan Licht), CSBC investigators (Andrea Bild and Trey Ideker), a patient advocate (Carole Baas), Sage Bionetworks (Julie Bletz) and NCI Program Staff (Shannon Hughes, Nas Zahir, Elyse Gillen, and Erin Wetzel).
