Holger Hoos

No machine learning, no modern artificial intelligence (AI). But there are only a few people in the world who have the expertise to construct algorithms and teach AI systems how they should carry out certain tasks. That is why Holger Hoos puts his faith in automated machine learning, an approach to AI research which he has pioneered.

Bas E. Dutilh

Researchers have been trying to track down microorganisms that colonise human bodies and, especially, the intestines for many years. Amongst these microorganisms are viruses that specifically infect intestinal bacteria. Bas E. Dutilh from The Netherlands has made seminal contributions to exploring virus diversity and spearheads pioneering work in bioinformatics.

Catherina G. Becker

To regenerate human nerve tissue is the dream of every medical researcher working on therapies for diseases like Parkinson’s or spinal injuries. The neurobiologist, Catherina Becker, could help to make this dream a reality. She explores mechanisms that give rise to new nerve cells and help heal damaged tissue.

Sayan Mukherjee

The mathematician, statistician and computer scientist Sayan Mukherjee has produced crucial work in the still young field of topological data analysis through which imaging methods can be improved and predictions made about diseases. In Leipzig, Mukherjee’s expertise in the evaluation of biological data is set to open up new avenues in precision medicine.
