H.G.H. Westenbrink Prize 2020/2021 awarded to Rik Lindeboom
The H.G.K. Westenbrink prize 2021/2021 has been awarded to Rik Lindeboom for his PhD thesis entitled ‘Investigating gene regulation in development and disease using integrative omics approaches’. The PhD research was conducted in the group of Prof. dr. dr. Michiel Vermeulen at Radboud University Nijmegen.
Rik Lindeboom's thesis describes fundamental research into gene regulation in embryonic development, stem cell differentiation and cancer. Rik Lindeboom has used a multi-omics strategy and big data 'omics' analyses, resulting in an original combination of excellent computational and innovative experimental research. By integrating multi-omics datasets of multiple model systems and diseases, his work gave many new insights into the global understanding of how gene regulation is orchestrated at a system-wide level. Rik Lindenboom completed his PhD with honors and currently works as a PostDoc at the Wellcome Sanger Institute in Cambridge, UK.
The prize will be handed out during the NVBMB spring symposium in 2022.
