About this Event
Alberta needs to harness the power of emerging health opportunities to unlock the full potential of its health innovation capacity. The advent of emerging methods and technologies promises to create products that deliver more effective and patient-centered care. One approach is Network Medicine, a paradigm-changing discipline that uses systems biology and network science to understand disease mechanisms and therapeutic strategies from an integrated perspective. Join Alberta Innovates on February 17 and learn about the advances and opportunities in the field of Network Medicine featuring Dr. Joseph Loscalzo, a leading international authority on the subject. Dr. Loscalzo has made tremendous contributions to establishing the field of Network Medicine, which involves going from molecular level to systems level thinking connecting the biological, environmental, and social aspects of human health.

About the Accelerating Innovations into CarE (AICE) – Concepts ProgramThe Alberta Innovates AICE Program is designed to enable and accelerate early-stage innovators along the commercialization client journey from ideating to conceptualizing across four domains of commercialization. The Program is being delivered in a series of closed-call streams that are designed to support early-stage innovation in emerging fields of health that are highly relevant to Alberta.
