Tom Ederveen researcherThomas (Tom) Ederveen is a junior scientist currently active as a medical biologist at the Centre for Molecular and Biomolecular Informatics (CMBI) and Department of Dermatology. Here, they focus mainly on the analysis of genomes of bacteria, on human and animal microbiota (microbiome studies) and on bacterial strain tracking.
Tom further is involved in the Bioinformatics Radboud Technology Center (RTC), thereby providing technical support in Radboudumc projects involving bioinformatics, data science and analysis, and more importantly with the biological interpretation of data.
Much of his own work relates to the bioinformatics analysis of the human microbiome in both healthy and disease status, in order to identify desirable and undesirable bacteria respectively. The main focus and interest of Tom has a clear immunological component, and lies in human skin microbiota and their implication in skin diseases, and in the gut-brain axis involvement of intestinal bacteria. In the end, by understanding these processes they hope to come up with interventions to cure diseases underlying an imbalance (dysbiosis) in the human microbiome.
He strongly believes that enabling relevant and high-quality research requires to work in a multidisciplinary environment and in close collaboration with (clinical) researchers from other themes and departments, especially for computationally-oriented researchers.
Therefore be welcome to contact Tom about questions or requests related to the above.
