The dramatic convergence of molecular biology, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, bioinformatics, and artificial intelligence has provided a substrate for deep understanding of the biological basis of health and disease. Systems biology is a holistic, dynamic, integrative, cross-disciplinary approach to biological complexity that embraces experimentation, technology, computation, and clinical translation. Systems Medicine integrates genome analyses and longitudinal deep phenotyping with biological pathways and networks to understand mechanisms of disease, identify relevant blood biomarkers, define druggable molecular targets, and enhance the maintenance or restoration of wellness. Two programs initiated our understanding of data-driven population-based wellness. The Pioneer 100 Study of Scientific Wellness and the much larger Arivale commercial program that followed had two spectacular results: demonstrating the feasibility and utility of collecting longitudinal multiomic data, and then generating dense, dynamic data clouds for each individual to utilize actionable metrics for promoting health and preventing disease when combined with personalized coaching. Future developments in these domains will enable better population health and personal, preventive, predictive, participatory (P4) health care.
