Break Out: Personalized Medicine: Clinical Challenges in Using Big and Small Genomic Data – Erasmus MC

May 16, 2019, 17:30 - 18:15

Erasmus MC is one of the largest medical centers in the Netherlands starting to teach and apply precision medicine evidence based therapy.

Van der Spek runs an immunological research program which provides the biological and technological basis for the bioinformatics group. It concentrates on the way the immune system and the genome as a whole contribute to the evolution, development, structure, and function of stem cells in vital organs such as brain and endocrine tissues in our body.

Peter J. van der Spek has been appointed as professor and head of the department of bioinformatics at the Erasmus MC. He obtained his doctoral degree in 1995 in the field of molecular carcinogenesis by cloning cancer predisposition genes.

Van der Spek has 6 years of pharmaceutical experience from Akzo-Nobel and Johnson & Johnson and holds several international academic appointments in Japan, Thailand, Australia, and the USA. The bioinformatics group at the Erasmus MC focuses on the support of datamining and clinical multi-omics driven data analysis. His expertise is used for fundamental research, molecular diagnostics, molecular imaging, (forensic) molecular biology and support of complex clinical cases from the dept. of pathology.
