Prof. Dr. Thomas Lengauer

Thomas Lengauer has studied both mathematics (Ph.D., Berlin, Germany 1976) and computer science (Ph.D, Stanford 1979). In the seventies he performed research on theoretical computer science, in the eighties on design methods for integrated circuits. He has been engaged in research in computational biology since the beginning of the 90s. His major focus of research is bioinformatics for understanding and curing diseases. 

Dr. Lengauer has been a member of the steering board of the international conference series RECOMB, and headed the steering board of the European bioinformatics conference series ECCB from its foundation in 2002 until 2005.
