Systems Biology of the Liver Research Network

The worldwide unique Systems Biology Research Network was launched on 1st July 2010 by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The network’s goal is to establish a virtual liver model in order to obtain detailed information about the processes in this organ and develop tailor-made drugs for the treatment of liver diseases. The researchers are able to base their work on the promising results obtained in the predecessor project HepatoSys. The BMBF will provide the German Systems Biology of the Liver Network with around 43 million euros over the next five years.

The emerging field of systems biology investigates biological processes in their entirety: from the function of individual molecules to the interplay of different cells as well as the organs in the body. Molecular biology methods are combined with knowledge and technologies used in mathematics, the computer sciences, chemistry, physics and the systems sciences.
