Agenda Summer School-Finalsummer_schoolAdvanced Summer School in System Medicine: Implementation of Systems Medicine across Europe (EACCME accredited)

22 – 26 June, 2015 – Djurönäset Hotel, Djurhamn, Sweden

The Coordinating Action Systems Medicine (CASyM) is a joint initiative of the European Commission, several European funding bodies, companies, researchers and clinicians aiming to develop a strategic roadmap for implementing Systems Medicine across Europe. To this end we are organizing the first European Summer School in Systems Medicine [click for more] . Our primary objective is to identify and provide best in class inspirational scientific and clinical demonstrational examples of research, tools, and implementations of Systems Medicine targeting an audience of a balanced mix of postdocs, clinicians, and graduate students poised to become future leaders in Systems Medicine. Secondly, our aim is also to initiate an annual meeting place targeting faculty within Systems Medicine and related areas.

Training Course: Data Integration in the Life Sciences

Date and venue
Monday 2 – Friday 6 February 2015
Leiden, The Netherlands

Biological systems function through the dynamic interplay of large numbers of components. At the molecular level these include genes, transcripts, proteins and metabolites. At higher organisational levels the main players are cells, tissues, organs and organisms. Understanding biological systems, for instance in the context of biomedical and industrial applications, requires combining multiple diverse data sets on all components and their interactions. This integration process is hampered by the fact that in modern data acquisition technologies each concentrates on one specific component of the system, e.g. a specific type of molecule.

EACCME accredited CASyM Systems Medicine tutorial for Medical Doctors
