Dr. Gribskov joins NIH/NIAID Systems Biology Program Steering Committee
Dr. Michael Gribskov has recently joined the NIH/NIAID Systems Biology Program Steering Committee. The role of the program's Steering Committee is to review the progress in meeting the goals of the awarded grants and to make recommendations for the continuation or re-direction of the projects and activities of the funded Centers on an ongoing basis and in consultation with the NIAID staff. The NIAID may re-budget individual Center's funds based on recommendations of the Steering Committee.
The NIAID Systems Biology Program program was established in 2008; the purpose of the program is to develop and validate predictive models of infectious disease initiation, progression and outcomes. These models are derived from the study of the architecture and dynamics of systems-wide host/pathogen molecular interaction networks during infection, using integrated datasets generated from a combination of "omics" technologies.
