Lipid droplet accumulation is the primary cellular phenotype that is interpreted as fat deposition at organ level in steatosis. The goal of this project is to establish a model that bridges molecular lipogenic stimuli with compromised liver functions.
– Functional imaging of hepatic transport mechanisms
– Systems modeling of lipid droplet formation

The International Conference on Systems Biology of Human Disease (SBHD) is a transatlantic event and communication platform for scientific exchange that takes place alternately between the United States and Germany.
SBHD 2017 is continuing a conference series launched by Peter Sorger and colleagues from Harvard Medical School in 2008. The conference focus is on mammalian systems biology, particularly on its application to human disease and therapy.
This summit will cover both the basic and translational / clinical aspects of NAFLD, with a specific focus on novel drug target and prognostic signature development.
Key sessions include all crucial pathophysiological aspects currently known to affect development and progression of NAFLD, such as "lipid metabolism and lipotoxicity" and "insulin resistance, insulin and hormonal signaling". Furthermore, oxidative stress, ER stress, and mitochondrial dysfunction will be addressed. On the second day,
Start Date: 9th Nov 2017

This event is a jointly organized Data Management PALs Meeting that involves PALs from the German LiSyM (Liver Systems Medicine) network and from the ERASysAPP (ERA-Net for Systems Biology Applications) initiative. PALs (Project Area Liaisons) are the front line experts of the data management teams of these projects. They act as data management advocates and help gathering user requirements and testing potential data management solutions. An important part of the meeting will be to gather the
