Successful kick-off meeting of e:AtheroSysMed
The BMBF funded consortium e:AtheroSysMed has met for two days in Aying nearby Munich to kick-off the project.
The consortium brings together major national and international resources and scientists from a wide spectrum of disciplines (e.g. clinicians, geneticists, epidemiologists, systems biologists, bioinformaticians, mathematicians). 30 participants – from senior scientists to PhD students – discussed project ideas and work plans for the next three years. Besides discussing science this meeting was also meant to get to know each other better.
The goal of the consortium is to better understand the genetics of atherosclerosis and stroke by identifying and investigating functional pathways.
