Simon is doing a joint PhD at de Duve Institute (UCLouvain) and the Interuniversity Institute of Bioinformatics in Brussels (ULB-VUB). His research focuses on the development of a novel genetic regions prioritization to analyse oligogenic diseases. He loves to learn and develop new ideas. Always ready for challenge and looking for passionate people to work with.
Chris is doing a PhD at de Duve Institute (UCLouvain) in the lab of Prof. Laurent Gatto. His work focuses on the development of standardized software for the analysis of mass spectrometry based single-cell proteomics. Passionate about biology and data science, he enjoys meeting inspiring people and learning about fascinating research projects.
Jeroen Gilis a PhD student in statistical data analysis at Ghent University with Prof. Lieven Clement at the statOmics lab. His research is focused on statistical method development for the analysis of single-cell transcriptomics data, with a specific interest for differential expression analysis and multiple hypothesis testing.
Barbara is a PhD student at the Interuniversity Institute of Bioinformatics in Brussels (IB²), a collaborative institute between the Université Libre de Bruxelles and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Her research focuses on the development of machine learning models to predict and analyse oligogenic diseases. What she enjoys most about bioinformatics is the diversity of topics studied, and the fact that it brings together people from different backgrounds.
Former President: Sofia Papadimitriou
Sofia is a PhD student at the Interuniversity Institute of Bioinformatics in Brussels, a research collaboration between Université Libre de Bruxelles and Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Her research focuses on the development of clinical predictive tools for oligogenic diseases, specialising in neurodevelopmental disorders. She is also a classical guitar player and occasional writer (yes, not only papers).
We are looking for additional representatives across all Belgian universities. If you’re interested, please let us know!
