International Symposium Addressed Disease Prevention through Systems Biology

ISB held its fifth annual international symposium at our research facility in Seattle, Washington. This year’s event, Systems Biology and Medicine, hosted 250 scientists from around the world (China, India, Taiwan, Israel, Mexico, France, Canada and the U.S.) to discuss and learn about the future of medicine through disease prevention. For the first time, the public had free access to the symposium through ISB’s web site (live webcast) to further understand systems biology and its potential in the field of medicine.

The field of Systems Biology continues to develop rapidly. While no one can foretell the many ways this revolutionary approach will change medicine and science, it is already clear that systems biology will fundamentally transform the practice of medicine from today’s reactive model, to one focused on predictive and preventive care.

Medical care of the future will use systems biology to examine individuals, assess their risk for disease and prevent diseases before they happen. The systems approach provides deep insights into intricate workings of human biology, specifically examining the operation of biological networks in normal and diseased cells. These insights during the symposium will lead to powerful new approaches in diagnosis, therapy and ultimately prevention of diseases.
