The Junior Research Group (JRG) SpatialOmics has now its own presence on our HiGHmed website:

Dr. Denis Schapiro and his research team are exploring spatially resolved, multiparametric tissue analysis at the single cell level.

Novel imaging technologies enable detailed cellular profiling by measuring dozens of antibodies and hundreds to thousands of transcripts at subcellular resolution. These technologies could help discover new features for diagnosis and treatment in the near future.

The JRG SpatialOmics at the "Institute for Computational Biomedicine" in Heidelberg, funded within our HiGHmed Consortium, focuses on the application and analysis of these new technologies with a focus on oncology, immunology and cardiology. The main goal is to develop computational and experimental tools to provide detailed insights into healthy and diseased tissues.


Well-trained professionals are a key success factor of the Medical Informatics Initiative (MII). For this reason, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research is providing supplementary funding of around 30 million euros (2020-2026) to 21 junior research groups as a substructure for newly established medical informatics professorships. The junior research groups are to support the professorships and be integrated into the work at the universities. This makes the forward-looking research field in Germany attractive for scientists.
