BIO

Thierry Voet holds a Master of Science in Bioscience Engineering: Cell- and Gene Biotechnology from the University of Leuven (KU Leuven, Belgium), and an inter-university post-graduate in Human Genetics. He obtained his PhD in the Department of Human Genetics (KU Leuven), and performed postdoctoral research within the VIB (Flemish Institute for Biotechnology) and SymBioSys (KU Leuven) – pioneering single-cell microarray analyses. In 2010, he joined the Cancer Genome Project at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute (WTSI, UK) to explore next-generation sequencing technologies for single-cell genomics. Since 2011, he is an Associate Faculty member at WTSI, and a founding member of the Sanger-EBI Single-Cell Genomics Centre. Since 2014, he is associate professor at KU Leuven following a 5-year tenure track at the university of Leuven. His research focuses on (1) the development of wet-lab and computational methods for single-cell (epi)genomics and transcriptomics. (2) The application of these methods to study functional genetic heterogeneity, as well as DNA-mutation, in normal development and in disease processes.
