Systems Medicine of Multifactorial Disorders
As part of the CFGBC Symposium and Systems Medicine workshop, participants
will attend lectures and/or participate with contributions in the form of a
The 2-day Systems Medicine tutorial that will follow the workshop is dedicated primarily to doctoral and post-doctoral students, medical doctors and other medical professionals. A poster is obligatory for participants attending the tutorial. Tutorial will include problem-based discussions,
active participation in Systems Medicine based exercises (experimental
