The Vision

Network science is having a huge impact in various aspects of health-related research. The advent of more comprehensive personalized data has fostered the emergence of precision medicine: an approach that considers individual genetic and physiological characteristics, lifestyle and environment in devising personalized therapies. Such an approach benefits greatly from big data and network approaches at multiple levels. First, integrating different molecular “interactomic” datasets from a single patient, from subcellular to organ-level, is a fundamental step towards understanding the mechanistic underpinnings of personalized health states. Moreover, there has been a continued improvement in the availability of health-related data, such as electronic health records detailing patient histories and providing accurate diseases statistics.


The People

This satellite symposium, hosted by NetSci and located at L’école de Musique - République, Paris - is organized by Amitabh Sharma from the Channing Division of Network Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Marc Santolini, from the Network Science Institute at Northeastern University, Vera Pancaldi, from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center and Thomas Rolland, from Institut Pasteur, Paris. It will bring together scientists, researchers and students from multi-disciplinary fields like network science, clinical science, systems biology and genomics.


The Research

There is a new need for big data approaches at the disease level to identify patterns of disease co-occurrences, allowing to optimize resources in prevention and treatment of various kinds of pathologies. The symposium will bring together the two themes of precision medicine and big data analysis at multiple levels of resolution. We expect to attract a number of practitioners of this rapidly emerging area, including established investigators, with clinical expertise of complex diseases, and computational biologists. This satellite will add a new dimension to the emerging field of network medicine, namely the improvement of precision medicine leveraging networks at all scales: from subcellular to organ-level, to comorbidities and hospital networks. The satellite symposium will bring together a number of practitioners of this rapidly emerging area, including both established investigators in network science applied to medicine and experts in personalized medicine.
