After completion of his contract with us, Alem has joined the laboratory led by My Phan and M. Cotton at the Dept. of Virology of the Erasmus MC where he will work at setting up viral genomic libraries for NGS to study virus-host interactions.
He will also focus on R and Pyhton coding for pattern analysis to locate transmission sites of the studied viruses.
Cor Breukel started working with Riccardo in Leiden back in 1990, when he was a post-doctoral fellow in Prof. Meera Khan’s laboratory at the LUMC in Leiden, and kept doing so until 2002, when the Fodde lab moved to Rotterdam.
He is currently still in Leiden where he joined the Sjef Verbeek’s laboratory working as a senior research technician both for the Transgenic Facility Leiden as well as Sjef’s research on immunology.
