Wouter Meuleman’s research focuses on how the regulatory genome is organized, and what the functional implications of this organization are.
Although technological developments have made it possible to construct genome-wide maps of regulatory elements across hundreds of human cellular conditions, the scale and complexity precludes routine utility of such maps. Wouter develops computational and machine learning approaches to reduce their complexity, while maximally retaining relevant information.
Prior to joining Altius, Wouter did postdoctoral work at MIT and the Broad Institute. He obtained his PhD in Computational Biology from Delft University of Technology and the Netherlands Cancer Institute, the Netherlands.
In 2020, Wouter was the recipient of an NHGRI Genomic Innovator Award, which provides flexible funding for a five year period.
