Computational Approaches to Disease, Signaling and Drug Targets

About this minor

Minor Structure

Since computational modelling approaches are increasingly important in disease and drug research, the first part of the minor focusses on modelling skills and computational thinking. In the second part of the minor students learn how disease- and drug-induced alterations in signaling pathways, as well as induced pluripotent stem cells, can be used for the discovery of new drug targets and the development of personalized drug treatments.
