Advanced Lecture Course on Systems Biology
sponsored by SystemsX.ch, BMBF and ERASysAPP
March 2 - March 8, 2014
Hotel Grauer Bär, Innsbruck, Austria
On behalf of the Scientific Advisory Board, it is a pleasure to invite you to the Advanced Lecture Course on Systems Biology, sponsored by SystemsX.ch, BMBF and ERASysAPP.
Systems Biology is one of the most prominent newly emerging interdisciplinary science areas. By connecting fields such as genomics, proteomics, cell biology, medicine, molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics, with mathematics, bioinformatics, engineering and computation, it enables discovery of yet unknown principles underlying the functioning of living cells. At the same time testable and predictive models of complex cellular pathways and eventually of whole cells are generated, which are useful for efficient experimental design and bioengineering and the network-based design of drugs and therapies. This advanced lecture course will cover essential and state-of-the-art aspects of SysBio from principles and methods through the modeling of living systems to applications in biotechnology and medicine.
SystemsX.ch, BMBF and ERASysAPP are the main sponsors of this exciting event.
We were able to commit many leading experts to participate as lecturers, tutors, black-board teachers and informal poster discussants and we are thus confident that this course will be an outstanding lecture course with an exquisite scientific program. It will open the doors for regular student training in Systems Biology in Europe, provide a basis for a human network of young Systems Biology experts, and provide a centre for other Systems Biology discussions between scientists and funders.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Innsbruck, Austria.

||SystemX.ch: The Swiss Initiative in Systems Biology is currently the biggest research initiative underway in Switzerland with the mandate to promote Systems Biology. It is a consortium with nine universities and three research institutions as partners. The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) supervises and safeguards the quality of the research and the initiative as a whole.
||BMBF: Education and research are a German Federal Government policy priority, which is reflected in the development of the funding it is making available to these fields. You will find more detailed information on all these issues on the Federal Ministry of Education and Research website.
||ERASysAPP: ERASysAPP is a European Research Area Network for Systems Biology, funded by the European commission (FP7). In the network, 16 partner organizations from 13 countries coordinate and enhance applied research projects in Systems Biology. Furthermore, the consortium initiate measures to strengthen networking and exchange between research centers, EU initiatives as well as between academia and industry.
