Klaus Tschira Institute for Computational Cardiology
This is the homepage of the Professorship for Bioinformatics and Systems Cardiology at the Klaus-Tschira-Institute for Computational Cardiology / Department of Internal Medicine III of the University Hospital Heidelberg.
The Klaus Tschira Institute for Computational Cardiology was founded in September 2015 with the support of the Klaus Tschira Foundation and is directed by Prof. Dr. Christoph Dieterich. The institute is active in three thematic areas. First: RNA maturation and processing, for which our laboratory has succeeded in publishing numerous software solutions to investigate the complex RNA world. Secondly, we have established the field of systems cardiology for in vitro and in vivo models of heart failure. Lastly, we build a bridge into the field of clinical data science through the HiGHmed Consortium, as part of the Medical Informatics Initiative.
