The International Conference on Systems Biology of Human Disease (SBHD) is a transatlantic event and communication platform for scientific exchange between the United States and Germany. It takes place alternately between the two countries. SBHD 2013 is continuing a conference series launched by Peter Sorger and colleagues from Harvard Medical School some years ago. The conference focus is on mammalian systems biology, particularly as it applies to human disease and therapy.
In 2013, the conference is organized by the Helmholtz Alliance on Systems Biology in cooperation with the Council for Systems Biology CSB2 and the Harvard Medical School in Boston as well as the Swiss Initiative in Systems Biology SystemsX.ch.
