Vitor Martins dos Santos
Chair Systems and Synthethic Biology Department at WU
Prof. Martins dos Santos heads the Wageningen Centre for Systems & Synthetic Biology (WCSB), and is also the president of the Dutch Society of Biotechnology (NBV). His lab develops and applies theoretical frameworks supporting experimental research towards the systems level understanding of the hierarchies and dynamics of cellular networks. These frameworks are used for directed cellular reprogramming, with applications to health and industry. The lab has made acknowledged contributions to large-scale genome engineering of designer microbes and to cellular-reprogramming.
