Jens Nielsen is professor in Systems Biology at the Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. His research is focused on systems biology, modeling of metabolism, and metabolic engineering of cell factories and has resulted in more than 550 publications with an h-index of 90 (Google Scholar) and over 50 patent applications. The research range from basic research in human and microbial biology to more applied research, including development of biotech processes and clinical applications in many areas of medicine. He has founded several companies and serves as president of the International Metabolic Engineering Society.
Professor Nielsen is group leader for the Systems Biology of the Druggable Proteome program and Principal Investigator for the Metabolic Atlas.
Adil Mardinoglu is an expert in the field of Systems Biology and Bioinformatics. His recent research activities include the generation of the context specific genome-scale metabolic models for healthy human cell-types e.g. adipocytes, hepatocytes and myocytes as well as certain types of cancer e.g. liver cancer. He employed the reconstructed comprehensive models for revealing the molecular mechanisms of obesity associated diseases as well as for discovery of the novel biomarkers and drug targets.
Dr Mardinoglu is principal investigator in the Systems Biology of the Druggable Proteome program, responsible for the Systems Biology-project.
