Principal investigators



The mission of the Menden Lab is to develop biostatistical and machine learning frameworks applied to biomedical data, to retrieve insights in the aetiology of complex diseases and identify novel intervention strategies. For this, we explore deep molecular characterised biomedical datasets, environmental factors, and tailor our models depending on disease specific knowledge, literature and data driven analyses, thus empowering the next generation of drug target identification, drug repositioning and precision medicine.


  • Biostatistical analysis of deep molecular and clinically characterised patients.
  • Predict ALS patient outcome with artificial intelligence and machine learning.
  • Empower patient stratification by deriving clinico-molecular fingerprint.
