Systems medicine and complex diseases
"Sequencing of human genetic material alone is not enough to better understand and treat diseases more efficiently. It is also important to consider the active status of the gene, which can be influenced by external factors such as stress, nutrition or the microbiome. In addition to genetic components, these factors can contribute to the onset and progression of complex diseases. I research the interplay between disease susceptibility, manifestation and progression of chronic inflammatory diseases by putting together various parts of the puzzle to form a systems medicine-based overview of diseases. My aim is to translate these research results into practice in a clinical context and thereby provide direct benefits for patients."
