9th IFAC Conference on Foundations of System Biology in Engineering – FOSBE 2022 


Royal Sonesta Boston, 

Cambridge, MA, USA 

August 28-31, 2022 


The field of systems biology has been established in recent years as an interdisciplinary point of convergence, where molecular biology, high-throughput experimentation, mathematical & statistical modeling, and computational sciences meet to advance our fundamental understanding of living systems. Recent machine learning advances and the ever-increasing quest towards personalized and precision medicine provide further exciting avenues. Driven by the desire to push the envelope of systems biology towards addressing pressing health needs, the motto of FOSBE 2022 is “Systems Biology for Life'' and its distinguishing characteristic from previous FOSBE meetings is the increased focus on health and the strong attempt to establish direct links with quantitative systems pharmacology. Special efforts have been made to establish communication channels between engineers, systems biologists, pharmaceutical scientists, and medical professionals. Our primary objective is to establish new avenues and directions for solidifying the role of systems biology in advancing life sciences.
