10-13 September 2012, Systems Medicine International Conference -SYSMED 2012 (2)

Systems Medicine has emerged as a new approach to personalised health care, utilising biological/medical data integrated with mathematical and computational modelling, to understand the underlying mechanisms of disease and to develop new strategies for individualised diagnosis, treatment and prevention. The key challenge in Systems Medicine is to bridge the gap between experimental data and medical knowledge and to evaluate both in terms of clinical utility and patients' benefit. This is an ambitious field that will challenge how we study complex diseases and is anticipated to have a far-reaching, positive impact on modern therapeutics and medical practice, resulting in a more comprehensive and systematic patient care.
