Short description
Professor Schultze is an MD by training. He spent 10 years at Harvard Medical School as a research associate and junior faculty member before he returned as a Professor for Tumor Immunology to the University of Cologne. Since 2007 he is the Director and Professor for Genomics and Immunoregulation at the Life and Medical Sciences Institute at the University of Bonn. In 2016 he was appointed the founding director of the Platform for Single Cell Genomics and Epigenomics at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases and the University of Bonn. His interest is the use of computational biology to better understand the immune system, which will be a pre-requisite for personalized medicine.

Professor Schultze is working at the interphase between computational biology, bioinformatics and systems immunology. He is currently involved in the development of a commercial product for analyzing single cell genomics data as a pre-requisite for the most state-of-the-art personalized medicine.

Topic of speech
Prof. Schultze will talk about the role of single cell genomics technologies and the respective computational approaches and how this will further change systems medicine approaches.
