Integration of knowledge and biobank resources in comprehensive translational approach for personalized prevention and treatment of metabolic disorders

Project description

Mentoring Latvia's medical excellence from benchside to bedside

Mapping the entire human genome in 2003 spawned a wealth of new technologies for linking normal and pathologic conditions to specific genes, DNA, RNA, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, metabolites and more. Biobanks were created to safely store biological samples. To process the huge volume of newly available data, novel methods in cellular and systems biology, bioinformatics and computational modelling have grown exponentially. EU-funded scientists have joined forces under the INTEGROMED project to enhance Latvia's excellence in utilisation of these resources in close partnership with the national health care system. Together, they hope to foster development of personalised clinical care, scientific collaboration and entrepreneurship.
