Meet The Team

The EMTHERA Faculty is composed of more than 100 scientists from Goethe University Frankfurt (GU), Johann Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), from several Max Planck Institutes, the Fraunhofer Institute for Translational Medicine and Pharmacology (Fraunhofer-ITMP), the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS), the Helmholtz Institute for Translational Oncology (HI-TRON), the Institute of Molecular Biology gGmbH (IMB), the Leibniz Institute for Resilience Research (LIR) and from Translational Oncology at University Medical Center Mainz gGmbH (TRON).

We are proud to be highly interdisciplinary within the EMTHERA faculty, covering a broad expertise from computational to natural sciences, clinical medicine and the financial sector. Within the EMTHERA faculty, the Junior Academy clusters all early career researchers and offers many activities, e.g. a lectures series on AI in Life Sciences. If your are based in the Rhine-Main region, interested in our research and wishing to join, please contact the project office.

The Steering Committee is composed of six scientists from Frankfurt and Mainz who together have taken the lead in establishing the network. A Scientific Advisory Board has been set up with internationally renowned experts from the fields. An overview of the governance structure can be found below.
