Bart Westendorp's Biography



Bart Westendorp, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Utrecht University The Netherlands

Bart Westendorp is Assistant Professor at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. His primary research interest is to understand how decision-making is done in cells during normal cell division, cell stress, development, and cancer. He combines live cell imaging techniques with (single cell) transcriptomics to address this topic. Within the Department of Pathobiology he has focused on the functions and regulation of the E2F transcription factor family. This family of proteins acts in the center of the gene regulation machinery that controls cell division and tissue development. In 2015, Bart Westendorp has established the Single Cell Analysis Center, a research facility within Utrecht University for the genomic and transcriptomic analysis of single cells.

The cell is a fundamental unit in the life sciences, and recent breakthrough technologies such as single cell RNA-sequencing have shown that substantial variation exists between cells, even within a seemingly homogenous population. To fully understand the importance and molecular basis of cellular heterogeneity in development, disease progression, and therapy responses, it is essential to combine single cell genomics with behavior or fates of the same individual cells. To achieve this goal, we have been developing innovative platforms that enable us to combine live cell microscopy with single cell RNA- and DNA-sequencing. These platforms include customized fluorescence microscope systems that allow capturing of individual cells of interest. I will discuss our latest approaches and provide examples of biological questions we are answering using our technology.
