The course focuses on the systems biology of disease with a goal of introducing the core concepts of systems biology and their application to systems biomedicine – the application of a systems view to disease.  The course aims to teach scientists to phrase questions and design studies that will help to understand the complexity in “larger” systems, including organisms of greater medical relevance, such as mice and humans.  Based on anonymous course feedback , the course is highly successful for scientists with little to no prior systems biology experience, and the lectures were rated very highly for knowledge transfer of content.  The one week course is offered annually in July.
