  27. EUREKA’s InSysBio: IMC’s relevance for Biomed and Biotech

  28. EUREKA’s InSysBio: IMC connecting with European pharma & food industry

  29. InSysBio:Eureka’s virtual cell initiative • European, industry driven research • Aim: Making computer models of living organisms for drug development etc. and • (now also:) for food production (biotech) • Bioinformatics • Tool development • Models for pharma and Models for food

  30. ESF forward look • Study to see if System Biology could be ESF theme • This would then make ESF catalyze common research programmes between National science foundations

  31. What is needed? • Wet SB, not just dry (FP6, EUREKA) • Try to get the national SFs to coordinate their SB programs • Construct mechanisms for transnational funding • Become partners for USA, Japan, Canada, China, Korea • Provide funding anchors for the alliances

  32. System Biology: Where it matters • International developments • European developments/potential • Dutch Systems Biology

  33. Dutch/EU SB:Integrative Systems Biology • Look at all the leaves • individually 2. The phenomena; top down Diagnosis; pattern recognition 3. Get to the roots; bottom up; Understanding of the special System properties/principles

  34. Dutch Systems Biology:The Ambition • Ambition: • Not just ‘SB’; aim is to now understand living organisms from molecule to cell, organ, and human organism • Put a healthy man …. on earth Dutch Niche: • mechanistic (bottom up SB) • wet plus dry • industry plus academia Bring about ‘common goal’ synergism between national programs (European countries are too small for SB) • Generate superfund from Europe

  35. What is happening in NL? • National programs • NWO (Dutch NSF) preludes (6 M$ each): • Bioinformatics • Molecule to Cell • Computational Biology • National Genomics Centres (200 M$): • Centre Medical Systems Biology (Leiden, VU, TNO; not really SB) • Kluyver Centre (some SB) • Plant Systems (not SB) • Cancer (not SB) • IBIVU: Integrative BioInformatics VU (3 M$) • IOP-Genomics: Vertical Genomics (2 M$) • Ecogenomics-BSIK (10 M$)
