We seek to establish mechanistic modelling in personalized medicine. Mechanistic modelling enables the integration of both prior knowledge about regulatory feedback and the physical-chemical constraints posed by diffusion-based transport into a computational framework. Unlike typical statistical models, mechanistic models represent the biomedical and clinical knowledge about the regulatory processes. Similar to clinicians in their daily work, such models can operate based on clinical datasets that are too small for machine-learning approaches. But unlike clinicians, the models can encompass more information, are more consistent, and can use mathematics to predict the non-linear dynamical behaviour based on the known regulatory interactions. In combination, mechanistic computational models are promising approaches to personalize and guide both patient data collection and treatments based on the few patient data points that can be routinely collected in the clinic.
Reproductive medicine, and IVF in particular, offer an ideal case study to establish mechanistic modelling for personalized medicine as the regulatory feedbacks have been defined, and IVF is well established both in human patients and in livestock such that large animal models, in particular cows, can be used to fill any gaps in human datasets.
You will focus on the development of predictive mathematical models that integrate literature data and newly generated data from farm animals and patients (3D images, hormone levels, gene expression time series) into a consistent mathematical framework that will allow us to provide data- and model-driven guidance regarding the best IVF treatment schedule. In collaboration with a PHRT-funded PhD student, the mathematical model will be carefully tested in clinical settings and then integrated into software for clinical use.
This is an interdisciplinary Post-Doc position funded by a grant from the Personalised Health and Related Technologies () program. You will work in the group of Prof Iber (ETH, computational biology), and collaborate with Prof Ulbrich (ETH, animal physiology), and Prof De Geyter (University Hospital Basel, reproductive medicine).
The preferred starting date is March 2023; the exact starting date can be negotiated.
