Research Areas

  • Theoretical Biology / Medical Systems Biology:
    • Application of mathematical models in the context of therapy optimization and model-based design of clinical studies (e.g. CML, AML, T-PLL)
    • Dynamics of molecular regulatory networks
    • Theoretical concepts of stem cell organization (theoretical stem cell biology)
    • Clonal competition and stem cell-niche interaction
  • Biostatistics / Bioinformatics:
