SysmedIBD stands for Systems medicine of chronic Inflammatory Bowel Disease. The main objective of SysmedIBD is to better understand chronic Inflammatory Bowel Disease and to find new approaches for therapies.

  • Mathematical experts develop models describing the process of chronic inflammation
  • Biologists generate data to validate the mathematical models
  • samples from patients are used to match experimental data to patient cohorts
  • chemical computing suggests potential drugs
  • experts in nutrition follow the outcome of diet intervention of patients

Professor Werner Müller is available for interviews contact.

Systems Medicine

  • Inter-disciplinary approach of research of system biology and medical practice
  • Looks at the dynamic systems of the human body as part of an integrated whole
  • Models on extensive experimental data are applied and further developed to target particular diseases
  • Aims to understand disease mechanism and suggest personalised treatments

IBD - Inflammatory Bowel Disease

  • Chronic inflammation of the gut as Ulcerative clitis and Chron's disease
  • 10 in 100,000 people suffer from ulcerative coltis and 5 in 100,000 people suffer from Chron's disease in Europe
  • Cannot be cured and a lifelong management of the disease is required

Key Data

  • Start Date: 01 December 2012
  • Project Duration: 5 Years
  • Coordination: Prof. Werner Müller, University of Manchester
  • Funding Scheme: Large-scale integrating research project
  • EC funding 11.999.998 Euro

Press Release

Research funded from EU SysmedIBD grant brings new understanding of chronic inflammatory disease: Scientists at the University of Manchester have shone new light on the way cells tune in to different inflammatory signals to understand what is happening in the body.
