Research interests

In general, we try to better understand the integrated physiological function of the human body in terms of structure and function of tissues, cells and proteins.
Currently, we are focussing on:

Image processing and analysis by artificial intelligence...
...and traditional methods to quantify and understand experimental and clinical images (histological 2D and 3D micrographs, CT, MRI, etc.). This includes the extraction of information not accessible to human analysis.

Multi-scale multi-species 3D modelling...
...of tissues and organ structures. We develop one of the world's most advanced 3D liver models and currently apply this technology also to other organs.

Construction of virtual biological tissues and organs ...
...based image data and expert knowledge linked by artificial intelligence. One aim of this new technology is to create patient-specific models for patient-specific diagnosis and treatment for example of hepatocellular cancer (HCC) in humans.
