Joachim Weischenfeldt, PhDGroup leader and assoc prof at Rigshospitalet and Biotech Research & Innovation Centre (BRIC), University of Copenhagen.

My group’s area of expertise is in computational cancer biology. We use cancer genome sequencing approaches to understand mutational mechanisms and their clinical and biological consequences. One particular area of interest is the larger, complex genomic rearrangements, which are hallmarks of aggressive disease but often poorly understood at the biological and clinical level.”
