Data-driven Precision Medicine and Diagnostics
The subject area concerns research that will make use of computational tools to integrate molecular and clinical data for precision medicine and diagnostic development. The focus is on data integration, analysis, visualization, and data interpretation for patient stratification, discovery of biomarkers for disease risks, diagnosis, drug response and monitoring of health. The precision medicine research is expected to contribute with strong capabilities in machine learning and AI and other computational tools to make use of existing strong assets in Sweden, such as molecular data (e.g. omics), imaging, electronic health care records, longitudinal patient and population registries, biobanks and digital monitoring data.
Research area-specific DDLS Fellows
The DDLS Fellows program is a career program aiming at accelerating the data-driven paradigm shift in life sciences. The DDLS Fellows will form the base of the next-generation of data-driven life scientists in Sweden, and create globally leading computational and data science capabilities.

Research area specific expert group
The DDLS-Steering group has appointed research area (RA) specific expert groups to plan,
coordinate and steer activities within each RA. The members were selected in an open call for nominations.
The role of a DDLS research area specific expert group is to:
• advise on research area specific strategies and research profiles for the scientific programs of the DDLS
• suggest and co-organize activities and community events around the research area topics
• take part in evaluations by providing advice on the design of calls and the evaluation process
• advise and support the DDLS fellows, post docs and PhD’s within the area
• act as research area specific national reference group for data services and support, training and research school
• engage the national DDLS community within each RA.
Members of The Data-driven Precision Medicine & Diagnostics expert group:
Gunnar Cedersund, Linköping University
Sven Nelander, Uppsala University
Lars Klareskog, Karolinska Institutet
Johan Trygg, Umeå University
