Positions available Systems Medicine Cluster (SyMeC): Accelerating Systems Medicine using a Cluster Approach 

Today, medicine is largely reactive. A medical practitioner treats the illness of a person, with varying levels of success. With the rise of genomics and the accumulation of large amounts of data on various diseases, a new systems-based approach to medicine has emerged. Clinical practitioners and researchers are increasingly realising that our bodies do not work as a set of independent components, but rather as an interacting system, with genes, proteins, cells and organs interacting with each other and the environment in complex ways. The understanding of this system will result in a transcendental change in medical practice; from reactive medicine, based on disease, to a predictive and preventive one centered on health. However, to effect this transition, complementary multi-domain expertise and experience are necessary. 

In conformity with the national priority of stimulating investment in biotechnology, a Biocluster has been created. The Biocluster is a platform – both intellectual and logistical – for generating required biological and medical evidence to accelerate systems medicine. The Biocluster comprises six institutions: 
 Bose Institute, 
 CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Biology, 
 Indian Institute of Science Education & Research, 
 Indian Statistical Institute, 
 National Institute of Biomedical Genomics, 
 Tata Medical Centre; with the National Institute of Biomedical Genomics serving as the co-ordinating institution.

Inter-Institutional Program for Maternal, Neonatal and Infant Sciences- A translational approach to studying Preterm birth (PTB) 

Globally, Preterm Birth (PTB) is the single largest cause of neonatal deaths. A birth that takes place before the mother has been pregnant for at least 37 weeks construes a preterm birth. In India, among the total 27 million babies born annually, 3.6 million babies are born preterm, and over 300,000 of these preterm babies die each year because of associated complications. India, with its highest number of PTBs and the highest number of preterm deaths worldwide, contributes 25% of the overall global preterm related deaths. Under its Grand Challenge Programme, the Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt. of India, has initiated a large multi–institutional and multi–phase research programme on PTB as below.

Virtual National Oral Cancer Institute (VNCI-Oral Cancer) 

The project aims to identify both intra and inter tumour variability in profiles of driver alterations in OSCC-GB that may differ among geographical and ethnic regions of India. We propose to perform identification and recurrence-testing of ‘driver’ alterations, in both coding and non-coding regions of the genome in OSCC-GB and comparative analyses of driver alteration profiles among patients drawn from three regions of India that are geographically, ethnically and culturally distinct. Identification of profiles of alterations among tumour clones will be performed by single-cell sequencing to generate relevant hypotheses regarding selective basis of clonal expansion under drug pressure.
