Lorenz is a clinician scientist, who is interested in understanding the single cell architecture of the human immune system. In his research, he combines single cell multi-omics sequencing and computational techniques to generate new insights into the epigenetic regulation of different immune cells. Machine learning is implemented at several stages of single cell multi-omics data analysis.

Before joining the Accelerate Programme, Lorenz trained as a medical microbiologist, virologist and infection epidemiologist at the Technical University of Munich (TUM, Germany). During his time at TUM, he investigated basic aspects regarding memory CD8 T cell development.
