Saarland University
Saarland University Saarland University was founded in 1948 in co-operation with France. Today the University counts 15.500 students of whom 7 percent are foreign students. Saarland University has 8 faculties. Computer science established itself early as a particularly distinctive element in Saarland University's research profile. The expertise in computer science found within the University is complemented by a range of top-class research institutes including the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence, the Max Planck Institute for Computer Science and the International Conference and Research Centre for Computer Science at Dagstuhl Castle. Computer science in Saarbrucken has also proved extremely successful in combination with other disciplines. Examples of such fruitful interdisciplinary co-operations include business information technology, law and informatics, computational biology, computational linguistics and cognitive science, the latter being the subject of a nationally funded collaborative research centre. Other collaborative research centres at Saarland University have been established in the areas of biomedicine and materials research. Project partner from USAAR is the Institute of Human Genetics (USAAR-HG), which is part of the Faculty of Medicine in Homburg. The research focus is also on cancer genetics with specific emphasis on gene amplifications and microRNA signatures as well as integrative genetic data analytics.
