Dr. Aderem discusses the work of his lab, how systems biology approaches are enabling a deep understanding the immune system's response to infections, and how these insights will lead to better strategies for combating pandemic infectious diseases.
New York, – June 6, 2008 – Three of the United States' most prominent biomedical science leaders have been tapped by the government of Luxembourg for an unprecedented international collaboration to establish a bioscience center of excellence in the heart of the European Union.
On May 4 local researchers and public health officials, several of whom are national leaders in infectious disease research and policy, gathered to discuss the current swine flu outbreak and take questions from members of the community. ISB Senior Research Scientist Alan Dierks participated on the panel.
SEATTLE, April 13, 2009 – Researchers at the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) have demonstrated a new computational method for getting the most biological information out of huge and growing sets of genetic interaction data. A paper addressing the development has been published in the April edition of PLoS Computational Biology at http://www.ploscompbiol.org/doi/pcbi.1000347.
SEATTLE, March 24, 2009 – Researchers at the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) in Seattle and the McLaughlin Research Institute in Great Falls, Montana, published today in Molecular Systems Biology a ground-breaking study which modeled the progression of degenerative brain diseases, one of which is "mad cow disease," that are caused by misfolded proteins called "prions". The paper can be accessed at http://www.nature.com/msb/index.html.
"I think the thing that is most unique about P4 Medicine is that it will represent a network of networks - genetic networks, molecular networks, cellular networks, tissue networks, individual networks, population networks, social networks."
