I studied Life Science (which is similar to chemical biology) at the University of Konstanz and became interested in Bioinformatics, Systems Biology and quantitative analyses during my Master's. In my PhD project I combine experimental analyses with modeling and parameter estimation approaches to quantitatively analyse regulation of apoptosis at the level of the Bcl-2 protein family.
Systems Biology studies the properties and phenotypes that emerge from the interaction of biomolecules where such properties are not obvious from those of the individual molecules. By connecting fields such as genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, mathematics, cell biology, genetics, mathematics, engineering and computer sciences, Systems Biology enables discovery of yet unknown principles underlying the functioning of living cells. At the same time, testable and predictive models of complex
