Systems Biology poised to revolutionize the understanding of cell function and disease
Date:9/7/2007

ome of the ESF Forward Look on Systems Biology that has been conducted in 2004 and 2005. The recommendations were first published in the ESF Science Policy Briefing No. 25 in October 2005 - http://www.esf.org/activities/science-policy/science-policy-activities-2002-2006.html

In a further proof of how much the ESF values the importance and potential of Systems Biology, the organisation has invited renowned scientific leaders to offer their expertise on how to best implement the Forward Look reports recommendations. This Task Force, comprising of nine experts in the field, will publish a series of precise recommendations on necessary steps to accelerate research on Systems Biology in Europe based on the Forward Look report Systems Biology: a Grand Challenge for Europe on 10 September 2007 at http://www.esf.org/publications.html.

Recommendations from the report:

To meet this grand challenge for Europe,

1. A European road map - A task force should be established in which the major stakeholders are represented, comprising top scientists, industry, European science organisations and funding agencies, and representatives of the European Commission.

2. European Reference Laboratories (ERLs) - A cost-effective coordination of a European Systems Biology programme, as proposed here, requires a consortium of European Reference Laboratories (ERLs). ERLs are research institutes that combine all relevant scientific disciplines and the know-how to provide outstanding expertise for core aspects of Systems Biology.

3. Cooperation between industry, academia and funding agencies - The Europe-wide approach proposed here will require an integrative and larger-scale level of funding than provided by grant systems now. We propose that a new financial model is developed based on
