Network Medicine: Quantitative interactome and multilayer networks taking medicine beyond the genome

The Vision

In general, human cellular network include multiple subsystems and layers of connectivity, and it is important to take such features into account when trying to understand the human diseases using networks. It is thus necessary to generalize the "traditional" network theory to multilayer systems in a comprehensive fashion. Generally speaking, up to now, the description of networks so far has been developed using a single and combined snapshot of the connectivity, which is a reflection of instantaneous interactions or accumulated interactions. This description is limited when trying to understand the intricate variability of real complex systems, which contain many different time scales and coexisting structural patterns forming the real network of interactions.

The satellite meeting will focus on understanding how the multilayer/multiscale nature of the network affects processes and dynamics of disease progression, causation and classification.

The People

This satellite symposium, hosted by NetSci and located at the JW Marriott Indianapolis, is organized by Amitabh Sharma from the Channing Division of Network Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Michael Calderwood from the Center for Cancer Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School, and Tijana Milenkovic from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Notre Dame. It will bring together scientists, researchers and students from multi-disciplinary fields like network science, clinical science, systems biology and genomics.

The Research

The satellite symposium will bring together a number of practitioners of this rapidly emerging area, including both established investigators, clinical expertise of the complex diseases, and computational biologist offering a combination of expertise from clinical, network science and systems medicine. This satellite will help us to add new dimension for the emerging filed of network medicine.

    Abstract description required

    We are looking forward to having your novel insights on network medicine in NetMed17, Indianapolis, Indiana on June 19, 2017. The satellite meeting will focus on understanding how the context-specific interactions and the multilayer / multiscale nature of the network affects processes and dynamics of disease progression, causation and classification. The goal of the satellite symposium is to bring together scientists from multi-disciplinary fields of network science, clinical science, systems biology, and computational biology. The scientists will be at all stages of their career from academia and industry with expertise in computational, machine learning, network-based, or mathematical modeling and analyses of large-scale biomedical network data, as well experimentalists interested in applying computational network methods to diverse biomedical problems, including (but not limited to) disease, drug repositioning, aging, cancer and other disease progression, pharmacogenomics, personalized therapeutics, and healthcare.


    Submission

    We invite you to submit a 500 word abstract including one descriptive figure using our EasyChair submission link, EasyChair, by May 5, 2017. Note that Sharma Laboratory is currently looking for new talent passionate about scientific research and innovation. Interested candidates are highly encouraged to email us a CV.
