A microbiologist with interest in microbial physiology and metabolism. Current research focuses on the biology of pathogenic and non-pathogenic clostridia, in particluar in vivo metabolism and cell-to-cell communication. Also active in metabolic engineering, using both systems and synthetic biology approaches.
I am the foundation Professor of Systems Biology and Engineering within the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering (CPE), at The University of Sheffield. My research philosophy is centred on a mechanistic systems biology approach to solve biochemical reaction engineered processes. I wish to pursue issues involved in the effective utilisation of biological resources. The approach is specifically targeted at the conjunction of chemical engineering (metabolic engineering and synthetic biology),
I am an Assistant Professor at Leiden University in the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science. I am a bioinformatician and my research interests are in data integration. I use scientific workflows and semantic web technologies to integrate and analyse data in systems biology and functional genomics.

Prof. Dr. Volker F. Wendisch is Chair of Genetics of Prokaryotes at the Faculty of Biology at Bielefeld University. Since 2010 he is member of the board of Center for Biotechnology CeBiTec and since 2014 member of the senate of Bielefeld University. He studied biology in Köln University. After having completed his PhD at the Research Center Jülich in 1997, He worked as postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA. From 2006-2009 he was Professor for Metabolic Engineering
Reproducibility of results is fundamental to all sciences. In computational biology, standard formats like Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML), CellML, or NeuroML enable the exchange of simulation models, and foster interoperability between software tools importing and exporting these formats.
My main research interest is in developing methods and tools that (1) improve the reuse of computational models in biology, (2) ensure reproducibility of modeling results and (3) that lead to easier
Lecturer/Assistant Prof in Computational Biology at the University of Ulster.
My research focusses principally on cholesterol metabolism and its role in cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis. I have also studied its role in innate immunity and infection. In addition, I have worked on areas of personalised and stratified medicine for cardiovascular disease and rheumatoid arthritis.
