Thierry Voet, PhD

University of Leuven

Thierry Voet, PhD, graduated with a Master in bioscience engineering: cell and gene biotechnology from the University of Leuven (KU Leuven, Belgium), and holds an inter-university post-graduate in human genetics. Following his PhD at KU Leuven, he pioneered single-cell microarray analyses, and in 2010, he joined the Cancer Genome Project at the Wellcome Sanger Institute (Sanger, UK) to explore next-generation sequencing technologies for single-cell genomics. Since 2011, he has been an associate faculty member at Sanger, and a founding member of the Sanger-EBI Single-Cell Genomics Centre. In 2014, he became associate professor at KU Leuven following a five-year tenure track, and was appointed full professor in 2017. His research focuses on (1) the development of methods for single-cell multiomics, and (2) their application to study the biology of cellular heterogeneity in development, aging, and disease.
