Prof. Ines Thiele M.Sc., Ph.D.

Prof Ines Thiele is the principal investigator of the Molecular Systems Physiology group at the National University of Ireland, Galway. Her research aims to improve the understanding of how diet influences human health. Therefore, she uses a computational modelling approach, termed constraint-based modelling, which has gained increasing importance in systems biology.


Her group builds comprehensive models of human cells and human-associated microbes; then employs them together with experimental data to investigate how nutrition and genetic predisposition can affect one's health. In particular, she is interested in applying her computational modelling approach for better understanding of inherited and neurodegenerative diseases.


Ines Thiele has been pioneering models and methods allowing large-scale computational modelling of the human gut microbiome and its metabolic effect on human metabolism.
