Division of Systems Biomedicine and Pharmacology

Strategy

The division of Systems Biomedicine and Pharmacology focusses on personalised medicine and the development of novel systems-based approaches in translational and clinical pharmacology.

We will therefore develop computational systems pharmacology methods, which will enable us to take into account complex disturbances in biochemical and signalling networks.

In addition, we are devising experimental methods to acquire omics (e.g. transcriptomics and especially metabolomics) and imaging data at different levels (in-vitro/organ-on-a-chip, in-vivo and human).

This will help us pinpoint novel biomarkers, arrive at better pharmacological (PK/PD) models, study differences between patients, and aim for system therapeutics.
