M.J.T. Reinders M.J.T. Reinders



Prof Reinders holds a position at the Delft University of Technology as well as at the Leiden University Medical Center. In Delft he heads the Pattern Recognition and Bioinformatics section in one of the Computer Science departments of the Faculty of Electtrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science. The section consists of three research labs: Delft Bioinformatics Lab (5 staff); Pattern Recognition Lab (2 staff); Computer Vision Lab (3 staff) and includes a group of ~60 people (incl. ~10 scientific staff members (HL/UHD/UD’s), ~30 PHDs/Postdocs, ~20MSCs).  In Leiden he heads the Leiden Computational Biology Center.  This center generates new biological insights with clinical applicabilities using computational tools to analyse molecular data. The groupconsists of ~15 people (incl. 3 scientific staff memberts (tenure trackers), ~12PDs/MScs).

Research description

Prof Reinders group in Delft is recognized as international experts on machine learning and in his bioinformatics research he applies the cutting-edge machine learning expertise to develop data-driven analysis methodologies to gain molecular biology insights. His group in Leiden uses computational biology to progress clinical applicability of molecular data with a focus on newest technologies, such as single cell or spatio-temporal omics data. He initiated work on molecular classification and genetic network modelling, and has a strong track record on next-generation sequencing analysis, network-based analysis, as well as integration of genomic data.
