e:Med - A systems medicine network

e:Med has the objective of establishing systems medicine in Germany. The e: Med office is located at the DKFZ in Heidelberg and represents the central information interface for hundreds of systems medicine scientists interacting across Germany. e:Med promotes system-oriented research into diseases in order to facilitate improved prevention, more comprehensive diagnostics and individually adjusted therapy schemes in individualized medicine. The program brings together scientists with molecular-genetic, clinical, mathematical and information technology expertise, with the objective of ensuring that research results quickly benefit patients.

Electronic processing (e:Med) plays a particularly important role for unraveling scientific questions in iterative cycles of experimental studies and computer modelling approaches. The nationwide research and funding concept e:Med has been funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) since 2014.
