GEORGES JANSSENS

Role: Performing computational drug screening

Research interest: Healthy aging, drug discovery, diagnostics, bioinformatics

Location: Utrecht, The Netherlands

I am passionate to develop healthy aging diagnostics and interventions that are accessible to the public. My research education has taken place in California, the UK, Sweden, and the Netherlands. It has centered around genetics, biomedical science, and bioinformatics, and has encompassed systems-biology (with yeast), drug screening (with worms), drug interventions (with worms and mice), and aging diagnostics (with humans). What I like about my work is the chance to make a difference in many people's health and lives. My motivation is to discover novel interventions.
