Welcome to the

Third Summit on Systems Biology!

The Third Summit on Systems Biology will be held June 16-19, 2009 in historic Richmond, Virginia located two hours south of Washington, DC. The summit will bring researchers together to discuss advances in systems biology as applied to microbial systems. Two pioneers in systems biology, Leroy Hood, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Institute for Systems Biology, and Stuart Kauffman, M.D., past MacArthur Foundation Fellow and director of the Institute for Biocomplexity and Informatics at the University of Calgary, lead the summit steering committee. In addition to Kauffman, confirmed speakers include David Botstein, Ph.D., Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, Princeton University; Jeremy Nicholson, Ph.D., Imperial College London; James Collins, Ph.D., Boston University; James Musser, M.D., Ph.D., Methodist Hospital Research Institute; Kristala Prather, Ph.D., Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Christina Smolke, Ph.D., Stanford University; Cammie Lesser, M.D., Ph.D., Harvard University; Mark Gerstein, Ph.D., Yale University; Yixue Li, Ph.D., Chinese Academy of Science; Mark Farmer, University of Georgia; Richard Triemer, Michigan State University; and Maria Rivera, Virginia Commonwealth University.

The scientific sessions include:

  • Host-Pathogen Interactions
  • Human Microbiome
  • Microbial Engineering
  • Modeling Microbial Systems
  • Technological Advances in Systems Biology

The Summit features two optional workshops:

  • The Microbial Tree of Life
  • Gene Networks and Diseases

We invite interested researchers to submit an abstract to present a poster or oral presentation at this summit. Submission of Abstracts.
