Institute for Systems Biology
The Institute for Systems Biology is a nonprofit biomedical research organization based in Seattle, Washington. It was founded in 2000 by systems biologist Leroy Hood, immunologist Alan Aderem, and protein chemist Ruedi Aebersold. ISB was established on the belief that the conventional models for exploring and funding breakthrough science have not caught up with the real potential of what is possible today. ISB serves as the ultimate environment where scientific collaboration stretches across disciplines, where our researchers have the intellectual freedom to challenge the status quo, and where grand visions for breakthroughs in human health inspire a collective drive to achieve the seemingly impossible. Our core values ensure that we always keep our focus on the big ideas that eventually will have the biggest impact on human health. Since 2000, ISB has grown to about 200 staffers, which includes 9 faculty members and laboratory groups.
"The study, published today in Nature from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Research Network, includes two key takeaways. First, upper esophageal cancers more closely resemble cancers of the head and neck, while tumors further down in the esophagus are virtually indistinguishable from a subtype of stomach cancer. Second, cancer clinical trials should group patients according to molecular subtype—in general, grouping lower esophageal tumors with stomach cancers, while evaluating upper esophageal cancers separately." https://www.systemsbiology.org/news/2017/01/04/comprehensive-study-esophageal-cancer-reveals-several-molecular-subtypes-provides-new-insight-increasingly-prevalent-disease/

We love it when our interns do well. Congrats to Ivan Esmeral on his early acceptance to University of Pennsylvania! Ivan was one of our high school interns in the Baliga Lab this past summer. He worked on Project Feed 1010 and even made a video about his experience: https://www.systemsbiology.org/news/2016/12/15/spotlight-ivan-esmeral/
