We congratulate Dr.-Ing. Dagmar Waltemath, who was appointed as Professor of Medical Informatics by the University of Greifswald on 01.12.2018. Dagmar Waltemath studied computer science at the Universities of Rostock and Linköping (Sweden) with a focus on databases and information systems. She was a Marie-Curie fellow at the European Bioinformatics Institute (Cambridge, England) and received her PhD from the University of Rostock on the standardisation of biochemical simulation studies. After a PostDoc at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (Norway) she headed a research group at the Chair of Systems Biology and Bioinformatics at the University of Rostock from 2011-2017. Her group developed concepts and computer tools for the efficient storage of computer-aided simulation studies in systems biology. Her work is part of numerous simulation tools, and the data standards she has developed are used worldwide for data exchange.
The Chair of Medical Informatics is affiliated to the MIRACUM project. Here, Ms. Waltemath will deal with concepts of digitalisation, storage and long-term availability of clinical research data in the KAS+.
