First Conference of the European Association of Systems Medicine – A new platform for medicine of the 21st century


Registration and abstract submission are now open for the 1st conference of the European Association of Systems Medicine (EASyM) on October 26th-28th in Berlin.  This international event will bring together scientists from all over Europe, including physicians, biologists, health professionals and specialists in mathematical/computational programming. The conference will focus on current examples of Systems Medicine and their ability to shape the future of medical care.  More on:

The CASyM roadmap – updated version of April 2017 released

From 2012 until 2017 the multidisciplinary consortium CASyM with representatives from academia, research institutes, clinical centres as well as funding bodies, Industry and SMEs joined forces to build a vision and a practical strategy (roadmap) for the implementation of Systems Medicine across Europe. During this time CASyM functioned as managing, coordination and support platform that brought together a critical mass of relevant stakeholders to develop a strong European Systems Medicine community and to work towards a long-term and sustained implementation of Systems Medicine across Europe – with the aim to bring Systems Medicine into everyday clinical research and practice for the benefit of public health in the near future.

The CASyM roadmap, initially published in 2014, and released as revised version in 2017 identified four core priority actions (community building, proof of concept/pilot study, cross-disciplinary training and data access, sharing and standardization) and ten key areas necessary to the successful implementation of Systems Medicine in Europe. These areas are outlined along with cross-cutting actions and specific recommendations over a period of 2, 5 and 10 years.

Research Associate for Translational Systems Biomedicine (m/f)

The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) is an interdisciplinary centre of the University, combining experimental, medical and computational approaches to analyse complex biological systems and disease processes. The LCSB focuses on neurodegenerative diseases. Through the establishment of research groups led by clinical scientists, the LCSB also bridges to the clinic. Technological platforms and models on different scales, covering in silico, in vitro and in vivo models in addition to patients and family studies, are the essential elements of the LCSB research strategy. To support our translational biomedical research unit we are currently looking for a highly motivated scientific project manager who enjoys making a difference.
