The primary purpose of the CSB is to promote pioneering research, research training, education and outreach programs focused on systems-level inquiries of biomedical phenomena within the University of Michigan Medical School and collaborating faculty. A primary emphasis will be on advanced computing and storage of large amounts of data generated by CSB faculty.

The THEME for our center is: Multi-scale signaling approaches: from molecules to host.

Co-Directors of CSB: Denise Kirschner, Ph.D., Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, and Gary Luker, M.D., Associate Professor of Radiology: Having co-investigators from both computational and wetlab/clinical investigation best represents the goals of the Center, which serves to integrate across these disciplines.

Focused Research of CSB: Unifying groups of multi-disciplinary researchers focused on systems level analyses of biomedical research problems and translation of this knowledge and methods to clinical medicine. Research will integrate innovative hands-on experimental methods and computational modeling to investigate normal and pathologic processes, generate hypothesis, and validate interventions to control an experimental system.

Core group of participating faculty: University of Michigan Medical School investigators and selected collaborators from other UM Schools and Colleges with expertise and scientific needed to advance biomedical research, translational science, and/or clinical medicine.

CSB in the news: New Center for Systems Biology to focus on “big picture” biomedical research: A new multidisciplinary center within the University of Michigan Medical School is applying systems biology approaches to advance personalized health care — including disease prevention, early detection and more effective therapies.
