Congratulations to Ivo Hofacker, Sebastian Tschiatschek, and Moritz Grosse-Wentrup for receiving WWTF funding

Two interdisciplinary projects involving the Faculty of Computer Science were successful in the WWTF Life Sciences 2023 Call "Understanding Biology with AI/ML".

The WWTF Life Sciences 2023 Call “Understanding Biology with AI/ML” was open to researchers seeking to conduct a research project that addresses a question in biology, biomedicine, or clinical sciences by applying innovative AI or machine learning methods to large data sets.
