What is Systems Biomedicine?

Systems biology is a new interdisciplinary science that derives from biology, mathematics, computer science, physics, engineering and other disciplines. A systems biology approach could integrate high throughput "omic" data, derived from human biomaterials, aiming to identify the central regulators (hubs) of disease pathogenesis, thus allowing the identification of novel drug targets.

Technology and Services

Our services and technology include (but are not limited to) consultation, high-throughput molecular profiling platforms, drug discovery platforms and cellular modeling platforms.
