Team Lead AI-guided Therapies

Institute for AI in Medicine, Germany

Jan has over 10 years of experience in developing algorithms in medical image analysis and image-guided therapies, including five years of postdoctoral research and development in the healthcare industry. Until now, he has published over 150 peer-reviewed papers, edited several books and won numerous awards for the theses and publications. He is also the PI of the open science client/server-based medical platform StudierFenster (http://www.studierfenster.at) and MedShapeNet (https://medshapenet.ikim.nrw), and is mentoring the transition of the medical Augmented Reality FWF-project “enFaced” into the Start-up “Augmentomy”. During his career, he supervised and co-supervised around 100 student theses and projects, and was involved in the acquisition of over 14 million euros in third party funding. He is Professor and holds a Ph.D. and a (German) Habilitation in Computer Science, and an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Human Biology. Currently, Jan has a dual appointment at the Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (IKIM) at the Essen University Hospital (UKE) in Germany and the Institute of Computer Graphics and Vision (ICG) of the Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) in Austria, and he is a Privatdozent in AI in Medicine.
