venue: Heidelberg, Germany
This EMBL conference addresses the promises and challenges of bringing systems biology research into medical practice. The conference assembles leading basic and clinical researchers to share and discuss the latest systems-wide data on
a) the molecular basis for health and disease
b) the experimental models in which biomolecular systems-type approaches are developed and validated before bringing these approaches to humans, and
c) the clinical and ethical issues that must be considered as we bring these completely new approaches into the public health and clinical arenas. This EMBL conference offers an unusually rich opportunity to hear from, and interact with, leaders in the efforts directed as molecular approaches to personalised health.
