Institute for Systems Biology and Arivale “Pioneer 100 Study” is featured on the cover of August’s Nature Biotechnology. The artwork was created by ISB’s Associate Director of Communications Allison Kudla in collaboration with contributing author John C. Earls, software engineer in Hood/Price Lab.
Institute for Systems Biology and Arivale “Pioneer 100 Study” Establishes Foundation for New Industry of Scientific Wellness. Personal, dense, dynamic data clouds enable novel insights into mechanisms of wellness and disease, new approaches to biomarker discovery, and the empowerment of individuals to enhance their own health.
The New York Times's Jeffrey DelViscio, who is a senior staff editor for the Science Times, interviewed our Dr. Lee Hood during the recent (Feb. 13-17) American Association for the Advancement of Science conference in Chicago for a podcast segment called "The Virtual Self." From the introduction: "…in order to truly understand health, wellness and disease, an individual human must create he or her own data cloud, which can be…
"Even in its pilot phase, the project is unusually thorough. The ISB will sequence the whole genome of each participant at the outset. And in later phases, Hood says, the study team will also examine epigenetics: methylation and other modifications to DNA that can reflect environmental exposures. But that is just the tip of the data-collection iceberg." — From 'Medicine Gets Up Close and Personal' in Nature The journal Nature…
