National Centers for Systems Biology


The primary mission of the NIGMS-supported National Centers for Systems Biology is to promote institutional development of multidisciplinary research, training, and outreach programs that focus on systems-level studies of biomedical phenomena within the NIGMS mission. The centers are expected to establish themselves as recognized leaders of research, resources and education in systems biology.

The National Centers for Systems Biology celebrated their 10th year anniversary in 2013, and the annual meeting featured presentations for a wide audience about the status and achievements of the program. The centers also highlighted their collective achievements in a booklet entitled “Lighting the Way: Ten Years of National Centers for Systems Biology.”  [10th ANNIVERSARY NCSB BOOKLET PDF 6.1MB]
