Welcome to website of the Group for Medical Systems Biology
The Medical Systems Biology group focuses on the computational investigation and integration of multi-omics data in explorative, preventative, and therapeutic contexts.
The complementary experience and research emphases of our team allow integrating all scales of resolution from genetic code to phenotypic expression.
In the medical context, we work in cooperation with clinical facilities and research groups in the exploration of disease etiology, identification of pathways , and the development of treatment options in personalized medicine.
A particular focus is put on the field of cancer research which culminated in the design of computational diagnostics pipelines for the Molecular Tumor Board at the UKSH Lübeck, which is an interface between clinical treatment and cutting-edge scientific insights by applying state-of-the-art sequencing and analysis approaches to the most challenging cases.
The group for Medical Systems Biology focuses on the development and verification of mathematical models for cellular behavior and cell communication from an initial stimulus to the final phenotype.
