SBMC 2006 - First Press Conference on Systems Biology of Mammalian Cells23.05.2006 - (idw) HepatoSys - Kompetenznetz Systembiologie des Hepatozyten
Invitation to the press conference of the Conference on Systems Biology of Mammalian Cells (SBMC) July 13, 2006, 11am
Within in the framework of the Conference on Systems Biology of Mammalian Cells (SBMC 2006), HepatoSys, the interdisciplinary Systems Biology competence network on liver research, will hold a press conference at the Heidelberg Convention Center on July 13, 2006, 11am.
The crucial question in Systems Biology is how biological systems with a vast number of sub-processes can function. In order to understand the linkages, identifying agents such as proteins and enzymes does not suffice. Of equal importance is the exploration of their interdependency. At the SBMC 2006, representatives from universities, research institutions and industry will present their work on Systems Biology of Mammalian Cells to an international public.
At the press conference, Prof. Jens Timmer, physicist and scientific spokesman of the network, and Dr. Ursula Klingmüller, biologist at the German Cancer Research Center Heidelberg will present the results of HepatoSys work so far.
The internationally well-known scientist and project partner of HepatoSys, Prof. Marino Zerial, will comment on the development of new treatment approaches of diseases such as viral and bacterial infections, neurological and metabolical diseases, and cancer. For his outstanding work in this area, Prof. Zerial, director of the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, received the Gottfried-Wilhelm-Leibniz-Award 2006 of the German Research Foundation (DFG).
Prof. Jens Reich, member of the German National Ethics Council, does research for HepatoSys at the Max-Delbrück-Center for Molecular Medicine at the Humboldt-University Berlin. He will comment critically on ethical questions arising in Systems Biology.
