Joris Vermeesch

University of Leuven
Professor of Molecular Cytogenetics and Genome Research
Lueven, Belgium

Joris R. Vermeesch, Ph.D. Ir, is chair of the department of human genetics, is professor Molecular Cytogenetics and genome research.  He is heading the Constitutional Cytogenetics unit of the Center of Human Genetics, and coordinating the genomic core.

The lab was a pioneer in single cell array development and massive parallel sequencing applications in preimplantation, prenatal and postnatal diagnosis. In addition, using clinical samples as input, the laboratory studies the mechanisms underlying chromosomal instability and rearrangements.  It actively develops methods for single cell CNV detection and will continue to address outstanding questions about instability especially during human development using single cell genomic approaches. The laboratory developed and translated novel methods for non-invasive prenatal and cancer testing. The group is partner of the SymbioSys, the systems biology center of excellence in computational biology.  He has published over 300 papers with an H-index 49.  Prof. Vermeesch is founder of Cartagenia.
