picutre of Leroy HoodPlease join Oakland University in welcoming Dr. Leroy Hood to our campus Tuesday April 5, 2005 starting at 4 pm in the Oakland Center Banquet Rooms (campus map). The afternoon will begin with Dr. Hood presenting a lecture on Systems Biology: Changing Biology, Medicine and Society. During his presentation, Dr. Hood will discuss systems biology, the idea that one can study biological systems by delineating the relationships of all their component elements and understanding the resulting systems properties. He will address the profound change systems biology will engender in medicine - moving society toward a predictive, preventive and personalized medicine. The lecture will be followed by a reception from 5:30 - 6:30 pm. This event is free and open to the public. Reserve your tickets seats by phone at (248) 370-4407.
