icon BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH

Our research aims to understand the manner in which living systems respond to chemical agents. We are particularly interested in understanding how the response to chemical exposure is affected by genetic and environmental factors and how this translates into altered capabilities at the molecular level. Our research interests include:

  • elucidating the mechanism of drug action
  • investigating the role of small molecules in cell regulation
  • repositioning drugs to treat rare and complex disorders
  • understanding the contribution of metabolic products to drug toxicity
  • devising more effective combinations of drugs


icon DATA SCIENCE

We develop semantic technologies to make sense out of the vast amounts of existing biomedical and clinical data. We build a biomedical knowledge graph using Semantic Web technologies, including the Web Ontology Language (OWL) to build ontologies, and the Resource Description Framework (RDF) to build Linked Data. Our research interests include:

  • the representation and publication of biomedical and clinical data
  • the discovery and on-demand use of biomedical data and services
  • the formulation, discovery and evaluation of scientific hypotheses.
  • the simulation of biological systems at the level of individual molecules


icon COMMUNITY STANDARDS

We develop community standards to make it easier to navigate the knowledge landscape. We work with the following organizations:
