Life Sciences and Health

Designing and analyzing models and algorithms focused on their direct application to important challenges in the life sciences and health.

The CWI Life Sciences and Health (LSH) group is a group of computer scientists and mathematicians whose research focus is on the analysis and design of models and algorithms as well as their direct application to important challenges in the LSH domain.

On the application side, our present team of researchers has expertise in, e.g., computational genomics, medical informatics, computational phylogenetics, and biological network analysis. On the methodological side, we come from different backgrounds, e.g., computational intelligence, computational data science, and operations research. Methodologically, we develop new theories, models, algorithms and decision support tools, for problems that arise mostly in collaboration with experimental biologists and medical experts. We actively collaborate in projects with academic hospitals, biological and biochemical research institutes, and industry. Click here for more information about our group structure.

The LSH group participates in the INRIA International team ERABLE.

Seminars: The LSH group organizes a biweekly seminar.
