Our goal

As the realms of clinical, sequencing, proteomics, cellular imaging, and histopathology data converge, we are dedicated to transforming this wealth of information into meaningful insights.

Our Research Focus:

We dive deep into the world of non-coding mRNA segments, exploring their hidden roles beyond protein production. Our computational methods bridge omics data and imaging to decipher complex human diseases.

Key Elements:

  • Non-Coding mRNA: We investigate the often-overlooked 5' UTR, introns, and 3' UTR of mRNA, pushing boundaries beyond their traditional functions.

  • Bioinformatics Expertise: We develop advanced computational tools to quantify non-coding mRNA in large-scale datasets, merging omics and imaging data for insights.

  • Phenotype Insights: We strive to link aberrant non-coding RNA to cellular and tissue-level abnormalities, from neurodegeneration to cancer.

Collaborative Synergy:

Collaboration fuels our research. We partner with clinicians, RNA experts, and stem cell biologists, fostering disruptive science. Located within Idiap an AI research institute, we are the bridge connecting diverse expertise for innovative solutions in complex human disorders. Our affiliation to the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics gives us direct access to the national network of bioinformaticians. We are also an affiliated research group of the NCCR RNA&Disease, an opportunity to initiate national collaborations with RNA enthusiasts. 



At the Genomics and Health Informatics Group, we are not merely data analysts; we are explorers on a quest to answer fundamental biological questions related to complex human disorders.​ ​
