Are you interested in solving fascinating biological or medical questions computationally? At the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg, Germany’s largest biomedical research institute, computational scientists work at the forefront of artificial intelligence and cancer research. They combine interdisciplinary approaches from computer science, medical informatics, physics, biology, bioinformatics and statistics to analyze and understand complex biological and medical data.
Main activities at the DKFZ involving big data include:
- Development and application of machine learning and computational methods for multi-modal data integration, including integrative analysis of genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomics and radiomic imaging data
- Development of methods for modeling and simulation of biological and medical processes
- Medical Informatics
- DNA mutation analysis and machine learning to decipher cancer genome variation
- Application and development of state-of-the-art technologies for single-cell omics and life cell imaging
- Computer-assisted radiology and surgery
- Biostatistical evaluation of experimental and clinical data
