Press Release: SyNergy member Fabian Theis wins Leibniz Prize 2023

The German Research Foundation (DFG, Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) today announced that Fabian Theis is a winner of the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize – the most prestigious research award in Germany. Fabian Theis is Head of the Computational Health Center at Helmholtz Munich and chair for Mathematical Modelling of Biological Systems at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and member of the SyNergy Cluster. The prize is endowed with 2.5 million Euros.


Fabian Theis about his new award: “I am super excited and grateful about this recognition! The past years have seen a rapid explosion of single cell genomics. The produced big data makes this a fantastic area to explore with machine and deep learning techniques to understand cellular decisions in health and disease. What also stands out is the immensely collaborative research - with teams truly spanning the globe. The future of medicine is data-based, and I hope to contribute to the foundations of a transformative biomedical era. I am delighted to receive DFG’s support with the prestigious Leibniz Prize, and I am deeply grateful to my fantastic team, my department, Helmholtz Munich, the Helmholtz Association, the Technical University of Munich and in particular my family, without whom all of this would not have been possible.”
