Event description

Description

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UT), will host its third 21st Century Cures: Southeast Conference in March 2019 which will focus on applying systems biology to biomedical research.

Guests will hear insights from prestigious scientists, learn about research priorities and funding opportunities from leaders at the National Institutes of Health, and meet potential collaborators from across the Southeast. In addition, the event will include an interactive poster session to allow faculty and students to share their ideas with other attendees. Abstracts are currently being accepted for poster display.

Available Tracks

Computational Modeling of Health

Track 1 will focus scientific inquiry related to questions such as: How can computational modeling impact human health through studying the behavior of complex, multi-level biological systems at the cellular and subcellular level? How can computational modeling improve our understanding of diseases and how to characterize, predict, and treat them? How can advances in multiscale modeling reveal new patterns or combinations that can be used to optimize decisions and improve outcomes? How can big data be transformed into computational models for precision medicine, drug design and delivery, and treatments for diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s disease?

Microbes and Health

Track 2 will focus scientific inquiry related to questions such as: What roles do microbes play in human health—whether it’s shaping our development, regulating our metabolic functions, providing disease markers, or contributing to our overall well-being? How can a systems biology approach shed new light on the ways microbes influence human health? How do changes or disruptions in the delicate human microbiome cause or contribute to some of our most perplexing ailments? How are new microbial discoveries being applied to unlock novel solutions to health challenges? How can a systems biology approach to the human microbiome be integrated into precision medicine and treatments for diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s disease?
