About Wim Cuypers

At the University of Antwerp and the Institute of Tropical Medicine Antwerp (ITM), I have the opportunity to combine my interests is Systems Biology, Bioinformatics, Biodatamining and Microbiology. My research is focussed on Salmonella bacteria, and more specifically on how they adapt to their environment or niche. Methodologically, I specialise in the analysis of genomic and transcriptomic data (PacBio and Illumina), and the integration of both layers of information by implementing machine learning algorithms.

For my interdisciplinary PhD research, I combine the expertise of my two research groups. At the Adrem Data Lab, headed by Prof. dr. Kris Laukens (University of Antwerp), we focus on the integration of omics data, and specialise in applying innovative data mining techniques to biomedical datasets. With the Unit of Diagnostic Bacteriology, headed by Prof. dr. Stijn Deborggraeve (ITM), we aim to improve the diagnostic and therapeutic challenges related to bacterial bloodstream infections by implementing omics technologies and wet-lab assays.
