Andreas Beyer is Professor for Systems Biology at the Cologne Excellence Cluster on Cellular Stress Responses in Age-Associated Diseases (CECAD). Further, he is affiliated with the Institute of Genetics of the University of Cologne and with the Center for Molecular Medicine Cologne (CMMC). After receiving his PhD from the University of Osnabrück, he worked as a post-doctoral researcher in the teams of Thomas Wilhelm (FLI Jena, Germany) and Trey Ideker (UC San Diego, CA). In 2007, Andreas Beyer became junior group leader at the TU Dresden (Germany), and since 2013, he is a full professor at the University of Cologne.
Andreas Beyer’s research employs computational biology approaches to investigate transcriptional and post-transcriptional processes, including their changes with age and in diseases. His work has contributed numerous approaches for the computational analysis of high-throughput molecular data and has led to discoveries regarding the regulation of protein levels and age-associated changes of the transcriptional process.
