Edwin Cuppen

Edwin Cuppen is director the Hartwig Medical Foundation, a national sequencing center in Amsterdam, which aims for the stratification of cancer patients towards targeted treatments based on whole genome measurements of the tumor. The foundation’s aim is to bring these developments to all relevant cancer patients in The Netherlands in a timely and responsible manner. For this, he works closely together with the Netherlands Center for Personalized Cancer Treatment of which he is one of the co-founders.

Furthermore, he is professor of Human Genetics and runs his research lab at the Center for Molecular Medicine at the University Medical Center Utrecht, The Netherlands. He is an expert in whole genome sequence analysis, human and cancer genetics and genomics. His lab combines experimental methods, including next-generation DNA sequencing and other -omics techniques, with patient cohort and cellular model systems and integrative bioinformatic approaches to understand the causes and consequences of genetic variation under normal and disease conditions like cancer and congenital disease.
