Systems biology for the functional validation of genetic determinants of skeletal diseases

SME-targeted Collaborative Project  (large-scale integrating research project)

HEALTH.2013.2.1.1-1: Functional validation in animal and cellular models of genetic determinants of diseases and ageing processes


The overall concept of this large-scale collaborative project is to functionally validate genetic determinants of common and rare skeletal diseases to gain a mechanistic understanding of disease processes and age-related changes and to deliver new and validated therapeutic targets. SYBIL brings together a complementary translational and transnational group of world-class scientists, systems biologists, disease modellers, information technologists and industrialists that will achieve critical mass to deliver the ambitious objectives of this programme of research.

SYBIL comprises 18 Partners with a budget of 12 million Euros over 5 years.
