Webinar: Systems Biology: New Approaches, New Tools, and Implications for Human Health Care

October 30, 2008

Date: Thursday, October 30, 2008
Time: 1:00 pm EDT
Duration: 90 minutes

Presenters will include worldclass scientists at the cutting edge of systems biology:
Dr. Leroy Hood (Institute for Systems Biology) will discuss the implications of the systems approach in healthcare.
Dr. Akhilesh Pandey (Johns Hopkins University) will describe the systems approach and its benefits relative to more straightforward, individual omics approaches.
Dr. Rudolf Grimm (Agilent Technologies), will discuss the analytical tools for systems biology research and novel translational technologies to support large-scale studies.

This webinar makes the case for a "systems" approach, specifically to better understand how biological systems interact and the profound implications for human healthcare. In addition, attendees will learn about the latest tools and techniques used in systems biology research, particularly how these tools serve each omics discipline while simultaneously drawing them together to the advantage of biomedical research.
