Leroy Hood’s Institute for Systems Biology Joining Forces with Providence Health & Services in a Partnership Aimed at Advancing Scientific Wellness

Hood predicts US healthcare spending will drop in the coming years as genome sequencing becomes routine for hospital patients and big data leads to advancements in disease prevention Systems biology is a field of scientific research that has the potential to provide plenty of new biomarkers that could be used by clinical laboratories to detect disease earlier and with more accuracy and to guide physicians on how to treat disease. Now comes news of a unique collaboration designed to use...

Expect More Multiplex Clinical Laboratory Testing as Systems Biology Moves Closer to Clinical Practice

In the Pacific Northwest, PeaceHealth has become the first community health system to join the P4 Medicine Institute (P4Mi) in an important collaboration to demonstrate practical clinical applications of systems biology in patient care. P4Mi is itself a spin-off of the Institute for Systems Biology that was founded by Leroy Hood, M.D., Ph.D., and several colleagues.
