The Max Planck Research Group investigates the interaction of the immune system with the organism, in particular the interaction of different cells of the immune system in local networks and with cells of other organ systems.
We are very excited to announce that Dominic Grün has joined the Institute of Systems Immunology! Prof. Grün, is moving from the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg, where he heads the research group “Quantitative Single Cell Biology”. He is joining WüSI as the director of a new chair that was founded with support of the Bavarian Network for Artificial Intelligence with the aim of advancing Biomedical Research at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence and Systems Immunology. Prof. Grün will have a double-affiliation with the Center for Artificial Intelligence in Data Science in Würzburg (CAIDAS) and WüSI and will continue to pioneer novel experimental and computational approaches in Single Cell Biology, Spatial Transcriptomics and Systems Immunology. His research interests span from development, hematopoiesis and immunology to the functional microarchitecture of tissue niches in health and disease. Supported by an ERC Consolidator Grant he investigates the hematopoietic bone marrow niche by combining single-cell sequencing and genome-wide single-molecule FISH imaging, facilitated by the development of novel artificial intelligence and computational machine learning methods. He is already closely collaboratiog with WüSI scientists within the german priority program for Innate Lymphoid Cells (link: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.immuni.2020.09.002) Check out his homepage for more information.
