Jo Vandesompele's Biography



Jo Vandesompele, Professor, Ghent University and CSO, Biogazelle

Jo Vandesompele is full professor in Functional Cancer Genomics and Applied Bioinformatics at Ghent University, Belgium. He obtained a Master of Science in Bioscience Engineering (1997) and a PhD in Medical Genetics (2002). He is author of more than 200 scientific articles in international journals, including some pioneering publications in the domain of RNA quantification. His H-index is 72, with over 40 000 citations (Web of Science, February 2018).

The main themes of his research are the study of non-coding RNAs in cancer and the development of nucleic acid quantification methods. His lab uses a combination of high-throughput (functional) genomics technologies and bio-informatics tools to answer the various research questions in the field of cancer.

Currently, the lab is doing active research in the field of liquid biopsy enabled precision oncology space, in which the preanalytical steps of sample collection, processing and storage are scrutinized and novel methods are developed for mRNA expression profiling enabling somatic variant analysis.

Jo is also co-founder and CSO of Biogazelle, is a Ghent University spin-off company (2007), and co-founder of pxlence (UGent spin-off 2015).
