The SYSCID consortium welcomes leading scientists to the SYSCID International Symposium

From 29-30 August 2022 the SYSCID team hosted the international symposium “Multi-omics of Chronic Inflammatory Diseases. From molecular signatures to novel clinical diagnostics” in Kiel, Germany.  

Understanding the actionable subphenotypes of chronic inflammatory diseases (CID) to predict progression and individual therapeutic targets requires the integration of molecular information across multiple scales. The SYSCID patient-centred approach has aimed to integrate multiple omics layers and to create multidimensional predictive models with a strong emphasis on longitudinal prospective observations and single cell level understanding.

Representing the final gathering of the SYSCID consortium, the 1 ½ day symposium consequently featured a number of high-class talks covering topics such as emerging technologies, integrated multi-omics of large human cohorts or clinical epigenomics and inflammation.

“It was a great pleasure to celebrate the final stretch of SYSCID with leading experts in the field of CID from all over Europe and the US. We enjoyed the vivid scientific discussion of our findings after two long years of limited personal contacts.” concluded the SYSCID coordinator Prof. Philip Rosenstiel at the end of the conference. 

As part of the SYSCID Symposium, young scientists presented their work in a series of Rapid Fire Talks (i.e. succinct 5-minutes talks) and in a poster session. Following the conference, these researchers participated in a 1 ½ day summer school including a module on disease maps as well as a session on single cell data analysis.
