Institute for Systems Biology
The Institute for Systems Biology is a nonprofit biomedical research organization based in Seattle, Washington. It was founded in 2000 by systems biologist Leroy Hood, immunologist Alan Aderem, and protein chemist Ruedi Aebersold. ISB was established on the belief that the conventional models for exploring and funding breakthrough science have not caught up with the real potential of what is possible today. ISB serves as the ultimate environment where scientific collaboration stretches across disciplines, where our researchers have the intellectual freedom to challenge the status quo, and where grand visions for breakthroughs in human health inspire a collective drive to achieve the seemingly impossible. Our core values ensure that we always keep our focus on the big ideas that eventually will have the biggest impact on human health. Since 2000, ISB has grown to about 200 staffers, which includes 9 faculty members and laboratory groups.
Our summer program provides a paid opportunity to experience research alongside experts in systems biology to students with a diversity of backgrounds and career goals.
systemsbiology.org Summer 2017 brought a fresh cohort of undergraduates interested in exploring ISB’s research in the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience Program.
ISB's Dr. Sui Huang weighs in on the anonymous peer review system in this Times Higher Education opinion piece.
"While standard grant review panels sieve out proposals that fail to meet the standard of technical rigour, they are so blunt a tool that, in the process, they also kill the most innovative, visionary projects."

A new report in PLOS describes the results of an international collaboration led by researchers at Institute for Systems Biology and Center for Infectious Disease Research to identify proteins in the less commonly studied malaria parasite "Plasmodium vivax."
systemsbiology.org Scientists from ISB and the Center for Infectious Disease Research led an international collaboration to identify proteins in the malaria parasite Plasmodium vivax. P. vivax and P. falciparum cause the majority of malaria cases, but P. vivax is far less-studied, in part because it cannot be grown in...
