Welcome to the Schüffler Lab!

Schüffler Lab

Pathology tremendously benefits from artificial intelligence (AI), as AI methods get better in identifying and characterizing specific diseases in digital medical images.

In our lab at the Technical University of Munich, we are developing, applying and validating new models for cancer detection, segmentation and quantification in digital histological slides. We are also studying new approaches for the recognition of genetic alterations in pathology slides, the subtyping of cancers, and the prediction of outcome such as therapy response. With our work, we deepen our understanding in cancer biology, and faciliate medical workflows in pathology to improve patient care.

Our lab is affiliated with the Institute of Pathology, the Department of Informatics and the Munich Data Science Institute (MDSI) enabling us to combine ressources from all relevant domains (data, computing, mentoring, expertise, and more) for forefront research and training, and to shape the future of cancer treatment and to help patients and doctors.

We are located in the heart of Munich, next to the Klinikum rechts der Isar and the TranslaTUM for translational cancer research, which connects us with outstanding experts in medical domains, life sciences, computational biology and radiology, and many more.

We are hosting a whole slide viewer for research in digital pathology.

BIGPICTURE We participate in the BIGPICTURE EU-Project (see on cordis or imi).
