How the genes, the proteins and the metabolise link to each other forming a consistent network? This network is really the key to understand our human diseases.
Albert-László Barabási says we need a new medicine, its name is „network medicine”. It can help us understand the mechanism of diseases and would affect all aspects of health care.

By helping to map intracellular protein interactions, Albert-Lászlo Barabási hopes to trace disease tracks so better treatments can be devised.
