The challenge for biology in the 21st century is the need to deal with the incredible complexity of biological systems. Our work on taking a systems approach to diseases have given us fundamental new “systems insights” into disease processes that include a deep understanding of pathophysiology, as well as new approaches to diagnostics and therapy. This has enabled the emerging field of predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory medicine – an innovation in health care delivery.
