Abstract
Precision medicine is an emerging framework devoted to diseases treatment and prevention taking into account
individual variability. Network science is considered one of the most promising approaches for the
development of precision medicine: in fact, network medicine is a rapidly evolving field of medical research
aimed at identifying, preventing and treating diseases. This talk will show the methodological challenges
related to the study of biological complex systems and consequently to the development of precision
medicine. Some studies will be illustrated, showing the potentiality of network medicine approach applied
to the field of neuro-rehabilitation, to the prediction of new disease genes and to the characterization of
gene co-expression networks.
