CASyM workshop at the ICSB2013 – Should systems medical training be integrated for basic and clinical researchers?

ICSB2013logob234

Tuesday, 3 September 2013, 14:00-17:00, Copenhagen, Denmark

This workshop is part of the CASyM educational activities to develop novel concepts to train the next generation of medical doctors and scientists in multimodal Systems Medicine approaches and takes place in the context of the ICSB2013 (http://www.icsb2013.dk/workshops).

Speakers: Charles Auffray (France); Gerold Baier (United Kingdom); Mikael Benson (Sweden); David Harrison (United Kingdom); Damjana Rozman (Slovenia) and Hans Westerhoff (The Netherlands).

The key question we wish to address is: Should systems medical training be integrated for basic and clinical researchers?

  • Since the successful application of systems medicine relies on multi-disciplinary collaborations between clinicians and basic researchers, it therefore makes sense that systems medical training should be integrated to facilitate such collaborations.
  • The workshop will consist of talks from clinical and basic researchers followed by a moderated and structured discussion between all workshop participants.
  • Output of these discussions will be integrated into the proposed road map for Systems Medicine.

This workshop is free to attend! Please register via the ICSB webpage (venue is limited to 100 participants).

CASyM´s first open stakeholder consultation conference

An open networking concept based on professional conferences, workshops and forums involving high-profile stakeholders from the clinical sector, academia, industry, government, and patient organizations across Europe is CASyM´s key to integrate all relevant stakeholders and become the European umbrella concept for Systems Medicine.

CASyM initiated this process with its first comprehensive stakeholder conference in Lyon in March 2013 as a satellite event of the Biovision World Forum on Life Sciences. This initial stakeholder conference covered a wide range of different topics from lifelong education through technological details and data handling issues, from ethical/regulatory issues and patient´s care/involvement through business models for industry and from clinical trials and mathematical modelling through impact indicators of Systems Medicine efficiency.

CASyM training event SYSTEMS MEDICINE OF MULTIFACTORIAL DISORDERS WORKSHOP & TUTORIAL and 8th CFGBC SYMPOSIUM Ljubljana, 12th – 15th June 2013

The workshop will cover topic Systems Medicine of Multifactorial Disorders with a special focus on bringing together Systems Biology and Clinical Medicine = Systems Medicine. Research activities of the Slovenian Consortium for Bio-Chips and collaborating foreign institutions will be presented, together with Systems Medicine (SM) success stories of leading researchers in the field.
The contributions of the participants will be presented in the form of invited lectures and posters, in two sections:

  1. From ‘omics’ to Biological Knowledge in Model Systems Systems Medicine of Multifactorial Disorders
  2. As part of the CFGBC Symposium and Systems Medicine workshop, participants will attend lectures and/or participate with contributions in the form of a poster.

CASyM workshop – Should systems medical training be integrated for basic and clinical researchers?

An ICSB 2013 workshop; Tuesday 3 September 2013, 14:00-17:00, Copenhagen, Denmark

To integrate relevant communities and stakeholder groups and to focus on key topics, relevant for the Systems Medicine road mapping process, CASyM organizes a series of dedicated workshops as satellite event of major conferences.

The current workshop is part of the CASyM educational activities to develop novel concepts to train the next generation of medical doctors and scientists in multimodal Systems Medicine approaches and takes place in the context of the ICSB2013.
