Fabian Theis obtained MSc degrees in Mathematics and Physics at the University of Regensburg in 2000. He also received a PhD degree in Physics from the same university in 2002 and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Granada in 2003. He worked as visiting researcher at the department of Architecture and Computer Technology (University of Granada, Spain), at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute (Wako, Japan), at FAMU-FSU (Florida State University, USA) and at TUAT's Laboratory for Signal and Image Processing (Tokyo, Japan), and headed the 'signal processing & information theory' group at the Institute of Biophysics (Regensburg, Germany). In 2006, he started working as Bernstein fellow leading a junior research group at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, located at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organisation at Göttingen. In summer 2007, Fabian Theis became working group head of CMB at the Institute of Bioinformatics at the Helmholtz Center Munich. In spring 2009, he became associate Professor for Mathematics in Systems Biology at the Math Department of the TU Munich. Since 2009 he is member of the ‘Young Academy’ (founded by the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the German Academy of Natural Scientists Leopoldina). In 2010 he was awarded an ERC starting grant.
Since May 2013 Fabian Theis is Director of the Institute of Computational Biology at the Helmholtz Zentrum München and holds the Chair "Mathematical Modeling of Biological Systems" at the Department of Mathematics of the TU Munich. His research interests include gene regulation and dynamical modeling, biostatistics and network analyses, statistical signal processing and biomedical data analysis.
