Bas Heijmans's Biography

Bas Heijmans, Associate Professor, Leiden University Medical Center

Bas Heijmans (1972) was trained as a (molecular) biologist and studies the role of genomic variation in human disease and ageing. His recent focus is on how the early-life environment can induce persistent changes in the human epigenome and how these changes may contribute to metabolic disease. This topic fits in his broader research interest to use genetic, epigenomics, transcriptomics and other molecular data to generate insight in the processes underlying common disease and longevity.

We aim to discover epigenomic marks susceptible to the (prenatal) environment and their contribution to human disease and ageing. We apply a mix of study designs, epigenomics technologies, and data analysis approaches for example within the setting of the Dutch Hunger Winter.
