His future research direction will be built based on the artificial-cells research that he established in the Lane Center as a Lane Fellow and a Branco-Weiss Fellow. His laboratory at UC-Davis will focus on the engineering of artificial cellular systems by tightly integrating both synthetic and computational biology approaches.



Marcel SchulzMarcel Schulz will be an independent group leader (junior faculty) at the Cluster of Excellence on “Multimodal Computing and Interaction” at Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany. In addition he will have an affiliation to the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, an institute with international renown in computer science. He will start his own group for computational biology focusing on algorithms for high-throughput technologies and systems biology, continuing and extending research that he conducted in the Lane Center.
