Data Analysis and Modeling of Dynamic Processes in the Life Sciences

Dynamic processes are ubiquitous in the life sciences. They can be found from the regulation in cells up to oscillations in tremor. Malfunction of these dynamical processes can be a cause or a sign of diseases. In interdisciplinary projects, we develop and apply mathematical methods to analyse and model these processes based on measured data. The final aim is to help to turn the life sciences from a qualitative descriptive into a quantitative predictive science.
