Computational Biology for Individualised Infection Medicine

Infections are among the biggest threats to health and the most significant causes of death worldwide. Our aim is to reveal the host genetic risk factors and their downstream molecular pathways, which are crucial to make progress in understanding and treating infectious diseases in an individualised manner as well as to improve the identification of patients at risk. The HZI department is part of the developing CiiM and currently housed at the TWINCORE in Hannover.
