Prof. André Uitterlinden – Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, Netherlands
His research is focusing on identification and characterization of genetic factors for common traits and diseases including anthropometry, endocrine disorders, and osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. At the Erasmus MC he is also head of one of Europe’s largest high-throughput DNA facilities, the Human Genomics Facility Huge-F (www.glimdna.org) which provides services for DNA isolation, genotyping and sequencing. Recently, he initiated a large global consortium based on a new SNP array from Illumina, the GSA, involving 145 research groups and ~1 million DNA samples currently being genotyped at HuGE-F. He is coordinating all molecular genetic analyses in 2 major cohort studies: the Rotterdam Study (20,000 elderly subjects) and the Generation R birth-cohort (8,000 children + 12,000 parents), including Genome Wide Association Study (GWAS) data. He is collaborating with many (large) international study populations and has coordinated the GENOMOS, GEFOS, and Reprogen consortia. He is a founding member of the Research Steering Committee of the Cohorts for Heart and Aging Research in Genomic Epidemiology (CHARGE) consortium, and has been director of the Netherlands Consortium for Healthy Aging (NCHA, 100 researchers, 2008-2014).
André Uitterlinden has published 1050 scientific papers in refereed journals (H-index 123, December 2017) and he is listed in the Thomson Reuters’ list of Most Cited Researchers globally. Currently, he is head of the Genetic Laboratory research group in the Erasmus MC (35 members) in which he now (co)supervises 11 PhD students. Under his supervision 24 PhD students have obtained their doctoral degree during the last 16 years. In the educational field he is organizing annual international courses on complex genetics which are very well attended, and is regularly giving lectures.
