In an earlier post we have highlighted the necessity to develop appropriate measures to safeguard against privacy risks stemming from biomedical research. Among the possible mechanisms, cryptographic, and differential privacy techniques were some of the suggested methods that offer

  A new era for biomedical research Thanks to the fast progress in sequencing technologies, the cost of molecular profiling has plummeted over the last decade, making a colossal amount of biological data available for research. Since the first

Computer models for generation and use of scientific understanding

Mathematical and numerical models are increasingly important for our understanding and prediction of complex interactive processes. Consider, for example, our climate system. Current understanding of the physical

Our abilities to collect, store and analyse scientific data have sky-rocketed in the past decades, but at the same time, a disconnect between data scientists, domain experts and data providers has begun to emerge. Data scientists are developing more and more


Paired with the emerging concept of Open Science, what influence does the digital paradigm have on the sharing of academic research results?

What about scientific research’s concepts of
