Promoting multidisciplinary training
Systems Medicine is a concept that aims at integrating all aspects of present medical teaching with modern Life Science/omics technologies, advanced data handling and computational modelling.
CASyM is about all aspects of medicine, and emphasizing clinical medicine, from clinical trials through public health and data handling, to application of Systems Medicine and medical economics. During the next four years, CASyM will assess the basis for a European Systems Medicine paradigm and will assist the medical community in creating the foundation for a new perspective by focusing on an approach based on personalized, predictive, preventive and participatory (4P medicine).
CASyM is not a standalone project and seeks to incorporate and complement the numerous systems initiatives across Europe. By definition, CASyM will be an open network, fostering integration, networking and open communication among all relevant stakeholders and communities. The development of this framework should overcome competitive barriers and produce a European road map for Systems Medicine as concerted project result. CASyM will be the European umbrella concept for Systems Medicine.
Multidisciplinary training in systems approaches for the next generation of scientists and MDs will be a key feature of CASyM.
