Ulrike Gaul

Developmental biology

Ulrike Gaul is a world leader and innovative expert in systems biology, a research field which has not yet fully established itself in Germany. Rather than isolating individual genes or proteins systems biology investigates their combined impact in the body. At the Munich Gene Centre, Gaul is expected to raise systems biology research to international cutting-edge level and network with other working groups through interdisciplinary collaboration.
