Advanced summer school in system medicine: Implementation of systems medicine across Europe

Forschungszentrum Juelich

The Coordinating Action Systems Medicine (CASyM) is a joint initiative of the European Commission, several European funding bodies, companies, researchers and clinicians aiming to develop a strategic roadmap for implementing Systems Medicine across Europe. To this end we are organizing the first European Summer School in Systems Medicine. Our primary objective is to identify and provide best in class inspirational scientific and clinical demonstrational examples of research, tools, and implementations of Systems Medicine targeting an audience of a balanced mix of postdocs, clinicians, and graduate students poised to become future leaders in Systems Medicine. Secondly, our aim is also to initiate an annual meeting place targeting faculty within Systems Medicine and related areas.

In this Summer School we will offer training and education activities to the next generation of clinicians, students and researchers on the path towards achieving an integrative understanding of pathophysiology and enable for the first time real practicing of 4P (Predictive, Personalized, Preventive and Participatory) medicine. Focus will be on successful examples of research and practice of systems medicine with lectures and hands-on exercises by distinguished faculty. Tutorials will be provided to fill in either medical or computational gaps.

We will offer two Youth Travel Fund Grants (1 for non-FEBS Countries - Asia, USA/Canada, Africa, South America and 1 for FEBS Countries). These grants cover the registration fee, accommodation and meals and support the travel. More information can be found here: http://www.febs.org/our-activities/advanced-courses/youth-travel-fund

The inauguration of the First European Summer School will occur in June 22-26, 2015, in the scenic archipelago of Stockholm, at Djurönäset.
