The Program in Systems Biology
was established as a new interdisciplinary research program at UMass Medical School in 2012. The goal of systems biology as a field is to understand biological processes at a systems level rather than at the level of individual molecules. Systems biology capitalizes on technological advances in the areas of genomics and high-throughput instrumentation, with strong links to computational biology, math, statistics and bioinformatics. Leading the new program as co-directors are Job Dekker, PhD, professor of biochemistry & molecular pharmacology and molecular medicine and a member of the Program in Gene Function and Expression; and Marian Walhout, PhD, professor of molecular medicine.
