Seattle BioMed Announces Major Scientific Expansion, New Addition to Leadership
Date:3/14/2011

SEATTLE, March 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In a bold plan for scientific expansion and leadership for the future, Seattle Biomedical Research Institute (Seattle BioMed) today announced that it will integrate a systems biology approach with its global infectious disease research. Systems biology pioneer and renowned immunologist Alan Aderem, Ph.D., will join the Institute as Director to guide the implementation of this revolutionary approach, positioning Seattle BioMed as the only institute in the world with infectious disease research and systems biology fully integrated in one building.

According to Seattle BioMed President and Founder Ken Stuart, Ph.D., this expansion is an unprecedented opportunity for the organization. "We are expanding Seattle BioMed by integrating the systems biology approach to infectious disease research, with the specific purpose of accelerating the discovery and development of vaccines, drugs and diagnostic tools to combat the world's deadliest diseases."

Aderem added, "The power of systems biology lies in its capacity to predict the behavior of a biological system.  If we have the ability to predict whether a drug or vaccine candidate for malaria, AIDS or tuberculosis will work before it goes into large scale clinical trials, we could move away from today's typical 'trial and error' method toward a more powerful predictive approach to vaccine and drug discovery and development," he said. "While we'll be able to save time and money by optimizing candidates before expensive human clinical testing, the most important result will be counted in lives saved."

Co-founder and former Director of the highly regarded Seattle-based Institute for Systems Biology (ISB), Aderem and more than 40 researchers and staff will join Seattle BioMed in spring 2011 as part of an expansion plan designe
