UPDATE: According to the European Association of Systems Medicine, the 3rd EASYM Conference has been postponed to Spring 2022. The precise dates of the event, to be held in Barcelona, will be announced.
(maintained were 2021 EASYM ACADEMIC EVENT & GENERAL ASSEMBLY: The training program (tutorials) run on 9th November 2021 from 09:00 to 16:30, followed by one-hour academic session and the day ended with the General Assembly)
EASyM 3rd Meeting 2022 (postponed from 2021): “Systems approaches to Global Challenges”: EASYM (European Association of Systems Medicine) was founded in September 2015 and therefore celebrated its 5th birthday last year. Many things have happened in these past five years. The Systems Medicine approaches have been broadly incorporated in the academic arena and its principles are progressively embedded into ongoing translational research programs. They have led to a better understanding of disease mechanisms, as well as to better capture the nature of disease interactions, paving the way for new therapies. Moreover, Systems Medicine is contributing to define novel strategies aiming at optimizing health value generation.
For Systems Medicine to be able to radically change health care still large steps have to be taken. This is why EASYM thinks it is important to bring together all stakeholders in the field (biologists, computational scientists, clinical researchers, practicing clinicians and managers) to discuss and work together on methodology, interpretation of data and implementation of results in clinical care.
To be able to bring these stakeholders together, EASYM considers pivotal to organize a 2-yearly networking event with a strong program to inspire and to give people the opportunity to discuss and brainstorm together. Furthermore, EASYM wants to play a role in training scientists working in the field of Systems Medicine and educating clinicians to promote clinical practicalities of the approach. Finally, EASYM wants to include young scientists in these efforts and has therefore installed a junior board to advise the board what they need to be successful in the field.
