Florian Markowetz is a groupleader at Cancer Research UK's Cambridge Research Institute. Florian
holds degrees in Mathematics and Philosophy from University of Heidelberg and a PhD in Computational Biology from Free University Berlin. He was affiliated with the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg and the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin. His PhD thesis was honored by the Max Planck Society with an Otto-Hahn medal. He pursued post- doctoral research at Princeton University with Olga Troyanskaya.
Florian's research is concerned with developing statistical and mathematical models of complex biological systems and analyzing large-scale molecular data. His research interests range from the analysis of microarray data in clinical settings to inference of cellular networks from high-throughput gene perturbation screens and integration of heterogeneous data sources using machine learning techniques and probabilistic graphical models.
Florian co-organized international workshops on microarray analysis and has been invited to give lectures and tutorials at international summer schools and conferences.
