Edda Klipp
Edda Klipp is professor for theoretical biophysics at Humboldt University, Berlin since 2008. She earns a PhD in theoretical biophysics and held a position as research scientist at Humboldt University following a postdoctoral period in Berlin. From 2001 to 2006, she was group leader of a junior research group in “Kinetic modeling” before taking over the head of the research group “Computational Systems Biology” at Max-Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics until 2008. In 2009 she was awarded an honorary doctor of Göteborg University. Edda Klipp carries out multi-disciplinary research projects to understand cellular organization, cellular processes and stress response. Using yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as major model organism, Klipp’s group develops predictive models (and related computational tools) of various signaling pathways, metabolic pathways, cell cycle and the interaction of such pathways upon environmental changes. Prof. Klipp is a founding member of the International Society of Systems Biology, member of several scientific advisory boards for systems biology consortia and principal investigator in several European and national research consortia for systems biology.
