8th International Conference on Pathways, Networks, and Systems Medicine
Each year, Aegean Conferences organizes an international conference where biomedical researchers engaged in systems biology-related efforts present their latest research developments. This collection contains peer-reviewed articles of conference presentations from the 8th International Conference on Pathways, Networks, and Systems Medicine, held in June 2010.
the 9th annual conference in 2011.
In the Spotlight
earned her Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania and has been at Duke University since 1993. She earned her endowed professorship, the James B. Duke Professor of Cell Biology, for the meaningful discoveries she has made since her postdoctoral work in genetics at the National Institute for Medical Research in London. The broad goal of the research in Dr. Capel’s laboratory is to characterize the cellular and molecular basis of morphogenesis – how the body forms. She uses gonadal (gender/sex) development in the mouse as her model system and investigates a gene she helped discover, Sry, the male sex determining gene. Gonad development is unique in that a single rudimentary tissue can be induced to form one of two different organs, an ovary or testis, and she is learning all she can about this central mystery of biology.Learn More
