Advancing Analytics

We develop and combine technologies into four-dimensional analytical methods for health research. Our goal: With our analytics for precision medicine, we want to contribute to optimising the prevention, diagnosis and therapy of various diseases.

Research Programmes

In our three programmes, we conduct research on various interdisciplinary projects. In one of our research programmes, for example, we combine analytical procedures and develop multi-method concepts in order to elucidate disease mechanisms and identify potential therapeutic approaches - always with a clear application purpose for the following preclinical research.

 Thyroid hormones: Timers for the heart?

The Collaborative Research Centre "Local Control of Thyroid Hormone Action - LOCOTACT" investigates the local control of the effects of thyroid hormones in organs such as the heart or liver. In order to find new therapeutic approaches for cardiovascular diseases, for example, researchers at ISAS want to know: How does the body control the transport, metabolism and mechanism of action of thyroid hormones in the heart?

From ISAS to Harvard: a special research stay during the PhD programme

The laboratories of the Bioimaging working group at ISAS are currently unusually empty. Two of the doctoral students have left the institute for a several-month research stay in the USA. An Interview with Head of the research group, Prof Dr Anika Grüneboom, ans statements from the two travellers give an insight into the advantages of this for their own scientific careers as well as the entire group's work.

What are you doing at ISAS, Marcos?

There are almost 1,400 kilometres between Marcos Nadales Neira's home town of Zaragoza in Spain and Dortmund. Why the 18-year-old decided to do an internship at ISAS and what he hopes to gain from his time at the institute, he reports for ISAS Kompakt.

Machine learning for early warning systems in a clinical setting?

Physicians often find themselves racing against time. In most cases, the faster treatment can be provided, the better it is for patients. The diagnosis should therefore be made as early as possible. This is where artificial intelligence could come into play. An interdisciplinary team of researchers has investigated the extent to which machine learning models are suitable for analysing clinical data - for example, to predict sepsis (blood poisoning) earlier than currently possible.

Red Alert: Students Research the Immune System at Girls' Day

What alarm bells ring when our immune system is under attack? Why do infections occur even without external invaders? And what do a heart attack and a cold have in common? These are just some of the questions that 12 schoolgirls got to the bottom of during this year's Girls' Day at ISAS.

Hydrogen Sulfide: The Surprising Molecule That Regulates Life's Vital Functions & Fights Aging

Hydrogen sulfide is considered highly toxic. Nevertheless, the foul-smelling gas fulfills many vital functions in our cells. As a gasotransmitter, for example, it can transmit signals within and between cells. But hydrogen sulfide also plays an important role in the oxygen supply in the blood – as researchers led by Dr habil Miloš Filipović at ISAS recently discovered.

New “Green” Microscopy: Less Electricity, but More Information on Immune Cells in Return

Advanced technologies, such as high-resolution microscopes, produce large amounts of data. And these again consume large amounts of electricity. In addition, there are refrigerators for samples, fume cupboards and small technical devices. While ISAS is upgrading to become greener, researchers at the institute are already working on methods to make microscopy more energy-efficient in general.
