Rob ter Horst

Postdoctoral Fellow

Before joining the Bock lab as a postdoctoral fellow in February 2020, Rob performed his PhD research in the group of Mihai Netea at the Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Rob is a bioinformatician and during his PhD he used statistics and pattern recognition to identify factors that shape our immune system in health and disease. He has experience with various types of omics data, including genomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics, and was involved in designing several cohort studies. Rob is also the designer and research subject of a sophisticated N=1 study, and he shares the results on his YouTube channel. Rob was trained as a chemist in both his bachelor and master, with a focus on computational chemistry and later on bioinformatics. At CeMM he uses bulk and single-cell transcriptomics and epigenomics data to study the complexities of the immune system.
