SARCHI: Mechanistic modelling of health and epidemiology

The Snoep Lab’s core research efforts are in Computational Systems Biology; a combined experimental, modeling and theoretical approach to quantitatively understand the functional behavior of Biological Systems resulting from the characteristics of their components. Our main focus is on metabolism, of human pathogens such as Plasmodium falciparum, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, but also of breast cancer cell lines, and on modelling disease states such as glucose homeostatis in type 2 diabetes, and malaria patients at a whole body level. Ultimately the whole body disease state models will be linked to epidemiology for transmitable diseases such as malaria.

Prof. Snoep holds a South African Research Chair (SARChI) that is linked to the South African Centre of Excellence in Epidemiological Modelling and Analysis (SACEMA) with the NRF and DSI as funders.
