SEATTLE, WA – September 25, 2007 – Leroy Hood, M.D., Ph. D, president of the Institute for Systems Biology, is being inducted into the National Academy of Engineering on Sept. 30 in Washington D.C., making him one of only seven individuals currently elected to three National Academies—the National Academy of Engineering, the National Academy of Science and the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies.
SEATTLE -- June 21, 2007 -- The Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) has received a five-year, $721,000 grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. The Center for Inquiry Science (CIS) at ISB will use the grant to collaborate with the Renton Schools in training the district's K-5 professional development staff in the systems approach to science. CIS is the education arm of the non-profit ISB.
SEATTLE -- March 27, 2007 -- Researchers at the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) have developed new techniques to predict how mutating gene combinations impact the ability of yeast cells to respond to environmental stress. The research, published today in Molecular Systems Biology, could lead to advances in the understanding and treatment of human disease, because most illnesses result from the interaction of multiple genes rather than the action or mutation of a single gene.
SEATTLE -- March 20, 2007 -- Researchers at the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) have, for the first time, mapped a set of protein/protein and protein/DNA interactions that help explain how many extremophiles -- organisms that thrive in extreme conditions -- regulate their genes in response to changes in the environment.
"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."
