Matti Hoch

PhD Student, Department of Systems Biology and Bioinformatics, University of Rostock, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany

I am a PhD student at the Department of Systems Biology and Bioinformatics (SBI) at the University of Rostock, Germany. Although I did my Bachelor's and Master's degree in Medical Biotechnology and thus have a pure biomedical background, I have always had a passion for computer science. Therefore, I wrote my bachelor's and master's thesis at SBI and also worked there as a student assistant. In my PhD , I am developing computational models for biochemical metabolic pathways and cellular interactions, with a focus on immunological and metabolic processes. With these models, I aim to facilitate large-scale data analysis and contribute to the understanding of complicated molecular mechanisms and complex data structures. By integrating the models into open source and web-based tools, I hope to make the computational methods intuitive to non-bioinformaticians, making it easier for them to interpret data. The models enable simulation of signal transduction and help identify new targets, analyze drug combinations, or predict the effects of molecular perturbations. They enable rapid screening of multiple targets simultaneously, reducing the cost of extensive in vitro and in vivo experiments.
