sysINFLAME e:Med Symposium – 6 / 7 October, 2016 in Kiel, Germany
We invite you to join the
First International Symposium on Systems Medicine of Chronic Inflammatory Disorders
6 / 7 October, 2016 in Kiel, Germany
organized by the sysINFLAME e:Med Consortium
It is directly following the Annual e:Med Meeting on Systems Medicine 2016 in Kiel (4-6 October, 2016).
In the past 10 years we have seen a wealth of research into the genetic architecture of chronic inflammatory diseases. Entire genetic risk maps and a plethora of pathways have been discovered, following the description of the first disease genes. However, it has become clear that on very rare occasions this genetic and pathophysiological knowledge can be directly transported into clinical translation. The new field of Systems medicine, which in Germany is fostered through the BMBF e:Med research initiatives and funding measures, aims to integrate layers of deregulation into account and aims to create a multidimensional model from longitudinal prospective observation. Understanding the actionable CID subphenotypes to predict progression and individual therapeutic targets requires the integration of molecular information across multiple scales from pathways to cells and tissues. The importance of the entire field will depend on our efforts to bring the wealth of findings back into clinically actionable applications.
