We are happy to anouce that Prof. Thilo Figge joined MSCJ this week. Prof. Thilo Figge is leader of the research group for Applied Systems Biology jointly at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena and the HKI-Center for Systems Biology of Infection.

The research group Applied Systems Biology is concerned with the mathematical modelling and computer simulation of infection processes caused by human-pathogenic fungi. The spatio-temporal data basis for these models is acquired by automatizing the data analysis of microscopy images on infection processes for high-throughput scanning. Our aim is to unravel secrets of the dynamical, functional and morphological aspects of the host-pathogen interaction using approaches of image-based systems biology.
