We work on developing and extending machine learning techniques for precision medicine, the life sciences and clinical data analysis. This field is exciting and challenging because new methods for a better understanding of diseases are enormous important. The field of action comprises many areas such as prediction of response to treatment in personalized medicine, (sparse) biomarker detection, tumor classification or the understanding of interactions between genes or groups of genes. The challenge lies not only in producing robust and reliable systems but also in systems that are easy to interpret.


As of May 1st 2019, the lab is located at the Department of Computer Science at ETH Zurich
