Institute for Biological Sciences Release: International Symposium Addresses Disease Prevention Through Systems Biology


4/21/2006 10:36:28 AM

SEATTLE, April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) will hold its fifth annual international symposium on Sunday, April 23 and Monday, April 24, 2006, at the ISB research facility in Seattle, Washington. This year's event, Systems Biology and Medicine, will host 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 will have 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 the 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.

Please attend this symposium to learn more about the exciting advances systems biology research is making. To register for the live webcast, please go to http://www.systemsbiology.org/symposium. The site will provide the event schedule, list of speakers and other pertinent information.

TIME: Sunday, April 23, 2006 2:00 - 6:30 p.m. (PDT) Monday, April 24, 2006 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (PDT) VENUE: Institute for Systems Biology, 1441 N. 34th St., Seattle, WA REGISTRATION: http://www.systemsbiology.org (click on symposium icon)
