e:Med is a new large-scale research program on Systems Medicine, funded for 8 years by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
e:Med brings together leading scientists and exceptional young researchers from all over Germany in the emerging field of Systems Medicine. Systems medicine uses interdisciplinary systems-oriented research on diseases to create a basis for understanding complex physiological and pathological processes for development of innovative personalized diagnosis, therapies, and preventive measures. Key to the appropriate analysis and possibly to the modelling of Big Data derived from information levels such as Genomics, Proteomics and Metabolomics is electronic processing (e:Med) i.e. computerized archiving, analysis and integration of data.
e:Med comprises five modules:
Module I - Systems Medicine Research Consortia
Module II - Demonstrators for an Individualized Medicine
Module III - Young Scientists
- Junior Research Groups
- Junior Research Alliances
Module IV - Future-oriented and cross-cutting measures
Module V - Internationalisation
