To identify research with a particular strength in areas of Personalized Health, two internal calls for projects were launched in 2016 by the University of Basel. Projects were selected and grouped into three thematic clusters to receive funding. In this first phase, the research clusters "Oncology", "Infectious Diseases", and "Immunology" are being supported by receiving a position for a bio-informatician specialist for two years.
In addition, PHB supports the research clusters with a coordinator, Dr. Cristina Golfieri, who organizes collaborations, networking, seminars and retreats between research groups of the Zurich-Basel Alliance.
PHB Research Clusters are coordinated by
Prof. Mohamed Bentires-Alj
PD Dr. med. Andreas Wicki
PD Dr. med. Adrian Egli
Prof. Manuel Battegay
Prof. Gennaro De Libero
