Joint statement of representatives from the Virtual Physiological Human Institute, CASyM, Disciplus, INBIOMEDvision, Personal Health Systems Foresight and Avicenna as well as the IMI-eTRIKS Consortium on in silico medicine research in Europe.
CASyM performed its second training event as a satellite workshop of the ICSB2013 in Copenhagen, Denmark on 3 September 2013:
“Should systems medical training be integrated for basic and clinical researchers?”
In June 2013 CASyM organized its first training workshop and tutorial “Systems Medicine of Multifactorial Disorders” in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
This event represented a pilot upon which additional training activities will follow and which will become a CASyM tradition in the European training scheme in the future.

The following video was captured during CASyM´s first open stakeholder consultation conference in Lyon (24-26 March) and provides an actual insight into what CASyM and Systems Medicine is about.
The Role of Multiscale Modelling in Systems Medicine – A CASyM satellite workshop of the SBHD2013 – Heidelberg, 11 June 2013
The (mal)functioning of the human body is a process that is characterised by the interaction of systems across multiple levels of structural and functional organisation — from molecular reactions, to cell-cell interactions in tissues to the physiology of organs and organ systems.
One of the key challenges for systems medicine is the integration of data, models and knowledge arising from these efforts, with the goal to support a comprehensive understanding of the (mal)functioning of tissues and organs, and the effect of drugs in order to develop advanced prognostic and diagnostic tools and optimised therapies.
A first draft report of the 2nd clinically focused stakeholder conference in St Andrews (12-14 May) is online. The report summarizes all aspects of the four focused round table discussions and will serve as an important piece of information for the proposed CASyM road map.
