Research Summary:

Dr. Krumsiek develops and applies novel methods for the analysis of metabolomics and multi-omics data. This includes pathway-based methods, computational simulations, and machine learning techniques. As special focus of his work is the inference of metabolic networks from data, providing a condition-specific, unbiased in vivo view on metabolism. He has mainly published on etiology and risk prediction in the field of diabetes and obesity research, and is now transitioning to novel projects in the cancer research. The lab elucidates metabolic associations of drug treatment and clinical parameters in different types of cancer.
