Biochemist by training and full professor in systems biology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
Bas Teusink is biochemist by training and full professor in systems biology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. He leads the Systems Biology Lab (www.teusinkbruggemanlab.nlhttp://www.teusinkbruggemanlab.nl) that studies the molecular networks inside cells that give rise to cell behavior and fitness, in isolation and in interaction with other cells and their environment. We focus on the principles and general understanding of how those networks adapt in response to environmental and genetic changes. We combine mathematical modelling, theory, and experiments. We apply the fundamental insights and methods in a biotechnological setting, in food fermentations in particular.
