Joint FEBS/SystemsX Advanced Lecture Course on Systems Biology
FEBS-SystemsX-SysBio2011: From Molecules To Function
February 26 - March 4, 2011
Hotel Grauer Bär, Innsbruck, Austria
On behalf of the Scientific Advisory Board, it is a pleasure to invite you to FEBS-SystemsX-SysBio2011: Joint FEBS/SystemsX Advanced Lecture Course on Systems Biology.
Systems Biology is one of the most prominent newly emerging interdisciplinary science areas. By connecting fields such as genomics, proteomics, cell biology, medicine, molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics, with mathematics, bioinformatics, engineering and computation, it enables discovery of yet unknown principles underlying the functioning of living cells. At the same time testable and predictive models of complex cellular pathways and eventually of whole cells are generated, which are useful for efficient experimental design and bioengineering and the network-based design of drugs and therapies. FEBS-SystemsX-SysBio2011 will cover essential and state-of-the-art aspects of SysBio from principles and methods through the modeling of living systems to applications in biotechnology and medicine.
The Federation of the European Biochemical Societies, FEBS and Systems-X.ch are the main sponsors of this exciting event.
We were able to commit many leading experts to participate as lecturers, tutors, black-board teachers and informal poster discussants and we are thus confident that FEBSX-SysBio2011 will again be an outstanding lecture course with an exquisite scientific program. It will open the doors for regular student training in Systems Biology in Europe, provide a basis for a human network of young Systems Biology experts, and provide a centre for other Systems Biology discussions between scientists and funders.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Innsbruck, Austria.

||FEBS: The Federation of European Biochemical Societies is one of the largest organizations in European life sciences, with nearly 40.000 members distributed among 36 Constituent Societies and 7 Associated Member Societies in 43 countries. FEBS seeks to promote, encourage and support biochemistry, molecular cell biology and molecular biophysics throughout Europe in a variety of ways.
||SystemX.ch: The Swiss Initiative in Systems Biology is currently the biggest research initiative underway in Switzerland with the mandate to promote Systems Biology. It is a consortium with nine universities and three research institutions as partners. The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) supervises and safeguards the quality of the research and the initiative as a whole.
