Maastricht University

The Institute of Data Science (IDS), a multi-disciplinary research unit in the Department of Advanced Computing Sciences (DACS), is committed to research in data science and artificial intelligence, collaborating across disciplines, institutions, and sectors. The goal of our research is to accelerate scientific discovery, improve clinical care and well-being, and to strengthen communities. We specialise in machine learning, decentralised applications related to biomedical data, as well as promoting the FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) principles.

The Department of Precision Medicine is a disease and discipline-agnostic department with international group of highly motivated researchers with unique skills under the direction of Professor Philippe Lambin at the University of Maastricht.
