Hans H. Diebner's Research

Systems Biology, Medical Biometry, Immuno-Epidemiological Modelling and Analyses

Since 1st August 2013 I tie in to my postdoctoral research into biometry and biological modelling. I am currently Research Fellow at the IMB-Institute for Medical Informatics and Biometry at the University of Dresden. Research focus is on system biology and mathematical modelling particularly within the scope of theoretical stem cell biology. I will soon report in more detail on my research activities, particularly with respect to modelling of T-cell genesis and dynamics. Key questions concern genesis of oncogenic cells and conditions for the expansion of leukemia/lymphoma.

During my postdoctoral time (1995-1999) at the Department of Medical Biometry in Tübingen the Plasmodium falciparum parasite (Malaria tropica) bothered me most intensively. I contributed with my research within the EU concerted action "Mathematical Models of the Immunological and Clinical Epidemiology of Plasmodium Falciparum Malaria". I am coauthor of three common papers on Malaria dynamics (see below).

Additionally, I contributed in several statistical-biometrical and immuno-epidemiological research projects. Part of my commitment at the institute has been consulting in statistics within the scope of medical research projects of the University of Tübingen. Please find below a publication on the analysis and modelling of a measles epidemic.

Thanks to all fellows of the IMB in Tübingen, including Louis Molineaux, for the amazing time there.
