The Tokyo Declaration

"Recent advances in Systems Biology indicate that the time is now ripe to initiate a grand challenge project to create over the next thirty years a comprehensive, molecules-based, multi-scale, computational model of the human (‘the virtual human’), capable of simulating and predicting, with a reasonable degree of accuracy, the consequences of most of the perturbations that are relevant to healthcare.

The JST and BBSRC are encouraged to join forces in order to create a collaborative program between Japan and the UK to drive this project forward.”
