Curriculum Vitae

Professor Antoine van Kampen obtained his PhD in chemometrics at the University of Nijmegen (1997) for the thesis 'Complex optimization problems in chemistry'. For this work he received the Clemens Rothaan price (1997) for ‘excellent scientific research in the domain of computer applications’ from the Royal Netherlands Chemistry Society (KNCV). After a short position as postdoctoral researcher at the same university he move to the Academic Medical Center (AMC) of the University of Amsterdam. Here he initiated the Bioinformatics Laboratory, which he is still heading.

Van Kampen was scientific director of the Netherlands Bioinformatics Center (NBIC) from 2006 - 2010. Here he was responsible for budgets (>50 MEuro) and the initiation, stimulation, and coordination of bioinformatics programmes in research, support, e-bioscience infrastructure, and education.

Van Kampen has a broad interest in bioinformatics research, support and education. Part of this time and group is devoted to AMC bioinformatics support. In addition, he dedicates significant amount of time to education of biomedical, bioinformatics, systems biology, and informatics students, and to the further training of postdoctoral researchers.
