SYSBIO.IT SCHOOL – 2nd SyBSyM Como School – Systems Biology and Systems Medicine: Towards a Precision Medicine. September 26-30, 2016 – Lake Como School of Advanced Studies

“Systems Biology and Systems Medicine for Precision medicine”

Dear Colleagues,
There is limited reason to be concerned about an inability to collect vast amounts of (BIG) Data; we are fully capable of this since the genomics revolutions. Data have been and are being collected: databases are full of them. However, neither Medicine nor Biotech is progressing as swiftly as we would have hoped with all those
data available. The progress limitation may reside elsewhere. Apparently there is more needed than just Data. Systems Biology and Systems Medicine have brought and are bringing forward innovative approaches that are enabling to build bridges between data on the one hand and both understanding and applications on the other.

This course will highlight those methods, some of the understanding obtained, and some applications. This should inspire the participants to become involved in the new and greatly empowered precision medicine and precision biotechnology.

The second Systems Biology and Systems Medicine School (2nd SyBSyM Como School – at the prestigious “Lake Como School of
Advanced Studies” ( is a full immersion course.Demonstration sessions explicating Systems Biology will enable participants to
tackle complex networks of life in an operational way. Lectures will underpin these.
With its International lecturers, SyBSyM provides a stimulating environment to all researchers, academia and industry ones alike.

We are writing to ask you to identify excellent scientists and students that are keen on traveling this new avenue towards precision biotechnology and medicine.

With best regards,

Diffusion and Impact

Contemporary science must be responsible to citizens, to the national and international communities that finances it. SYSBIO disseminates the results obtained and shares the concepts developed through specialized and non-specialist events. Seminars often involve people who are far from systems biology, but important to understand topics such as, for instance, complexity and epistemology.
