Final COST action OpenMultiMed Conference:

Our main objective is to gather a critical mass of researchers and stakeholders from different disciplines and coordinate these researchers as a team to define, investigate important S&T challenges in multiscale systems medicine and to improve existing and develop novel solutions for multiscale systems medicine.

Multiscale systems medicine aims to utilize and integrate high-throughput data from various sources to improve the diagnosis and treatment of disease. This one-day workshop will focus on the development and application of algorithms for the analysis of heterogeneous datasets arising from clinical practice. We will focus on network-based tools and tools designed to integrate datasets stemming from different experimental techniques and medical records. Applications in the discovery of molecular mechanisms of disease and personalized therapy will be also discussed.
