  • Host-Microbiome Interactions


Frederick Clasen completed his undergraduate and master’s studies in Bioinformatics and Biotechnology at the University of Pretoria in South Africa. He then moved to London to pursue a PhD at the Francis Crick Institute and King’s College London. His PhD concentrated on the development of mathematical models to simulate metabolism computationally. This included integrative genome-scale metabolic models of host and microbiome metabolism focusing on liver cancer.

In his current role, Frederick is researching several integrative projects investigating how the microbiome contributes to disease physiology and is building tools and computational resources for this purpose.
