Identification of key processes leading to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and its progression to non-alcoholic steato-hepatitis (NASH): Based on the finding within the Virtual Liver Network that the Hedgehog signalling pathway is a core player in the regulation of liver lipid metabolism, this project aims to characterize and model the central role of Hedgehog signalling during the transition from benign steatosis to NAFLD and NASH using patient data and large data sets from various well-established animal models.

The spatial separation of metabolic functions along the porto-central axis within the liver lobule is termed liver zonation. The zonated metabolic endowment of hepatocytes along the sinusoid are partially influenced by adaption to changing contents of nutrients and oxygen, but is mainly regulated by the morphogenic Wnt/β-Catenin signaling pathway. How morphogens contribute to the lobular distribution of metabolic pathways is part of an evolving field in science since the last decade. For long,

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,

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
