The primary aim of MaCSBio is to facilitate the integration of relevant biological data coming from different empirical domains using mathematical multi-scale modelling approaches. This will take shape in two research lines, which will be established within the centre. The focus of the research lines will be on developing and applying systems biology approaches for:
- Personalized prevention of chronic diseases in the ‘obese system’ and
- Modelling experience and disease-induced modifications in neural and genetic networks.
Maastricht University is strengthening its systems biology research and education. With support of the Province of Limburg, the Maastricht Centre for Systems Biology (MaCSBio) has been founded.
