Mr Tilman Flock

Mr Tilman Flock, Fellow

Tilman is a computational and molecular biologist working at the interface of large-scale experimental biology and computational statistics.

After obtaining a BSc in Molecular Biotechnology from the Technical University of Munich, he studied Protein Engineering, Biophysics, Molecular Medicine and Bionanotechnology in his MSc and focused his Master’s research on second-generation biofuels at the California Institute of Technology.

Tilman moved to Cambridge to shift his research focus from experimental to computational work during a PhD in Computational Structural Biology at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology.

Tilman’s current work uses machine learning and computational biology to integrate diverse large-scale experimental data from high-throughput biophysics, biochemistry and cell biology to infer the molecular mechanisms of how certain drugs such as opioids cause side effects.
