Bart is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow who develops and applies multi 'omic approaches to unravel the molecular biology of pathogens. 

A major part of his work focusses on the parasite Leishmania donovani, which is responsible for the disease visceral leishmaniasis. Each year, over 5 million people contract this disease, which is lethal without treatment. His research focusses on unraveling developmental and drug-resistance mechanisms of the parasite by integrating genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics data over a wide array of treatments and life stages.

Keywords: Systems Biology, Multi 'omics, Data Mining, Molecular Biology, Molecular Parasitology.
