A key feature of the LKCMedicine research is the recognition of human health as the output of the operation of a highly complex interacting system and disease as a multifaceted process that transcends the classical distinctions between organ systems. We seek to promote synergies between research themes; for instance, interaction between researchers with expertise in metabolism and neuroscience will address the role of the brain-gut axis in metabolic disorders and obesity; similarly, the relationships between mood disorders and infection can be addressed through interaction between neuroscientists and infectious disease research. Such a holistic “Systems Medicine” approach is a defining feature of LKCMedicine research and will be the key to its success in maximising impact in a competitive global environment.
