Biography

Edwin Cuppen is professor of Human Genetics and director of the Center for Molecular Medicine, UMC Utrecht. His area of expertise is in genomics and genetics and he facilitates and performs next-generation sequencing both for research and diagnostic purposes. Edwin is a pioneer in personalized genomics, carrying his genome not only in his own cells, but also on his iPad. In his current research he combines experimental methods, including next-generation DNA sequencing technology and cellular models, with bioinformatic approaches to identify functional elements in genomes and to understand the effects of genetic variation under normal and disease conditions. In 2005, Edwin Cuppen was awarded a European Young Investigators Award for his work on naturally occurring and induced genetic variation in the laboratory rat. In 2013, he was awarded a prestigious NWO Vici grant for dissecting the molecular mechanisms behind structural genomic variation. Edwin Cuppen is one of the founders of the Netherlands Center for Personalized Cancer Treatment. This national collaboration aims for the stratification of cancer patients towards targeted treatments based on DNA measurements of the tumor. They aim to bring these developments to all cancer patients in The Netherlands in a timely and responsible manner. These activities led to the establishment of the Hartwig Medical Foundation, a national large scale cancer whole genome sequencing and databasing infrastructure, where Edwin dedicates half its time as scientific director.
