A great opportunity for him, to extend his carrier in a new setting. But certainly, also a loss for the Department of Molecular Biology and our RIMLS Institute.

Henk Stunnenberg is full professor, former head of the Department of Molecular Biology (since 1996) and co-founder of RIMLS. Henk Stunnenberg has published seminal papers in Nature, Science and Cell. And of course, he will continue!  

Henk Stunnenberg's research aims to unravel the molecular basis of development and differentiation emanating from the genome and epigenome in the context of health and disease. In his field of Molecular Biology, Henk Stunnenberg stands with the best. Stunnenberg’s enthusiasm, broad scientific knowledge, and international reputation draw young scientists from all across the world.

We thank Henk wholeheartedly for his great work in recent years and we wish him every success in Utrecht
