Dr. Sander Kersten received his PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry from Cornell University in 1997. After a postdoctoral stay in the laboratory of Dr. Walter Wahli at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, he moved to Wageningen in 2000, initially as a fellow of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences and later as Associate Professor. Since 2011 he is Full Professor in Molecular Nutrition and since 2014 chair of the Nutrition, Metabolism and Genomics group. His current research interests
Institutions: University of Milano-Bicocca
I am a PostDoc working on yeast metabolomics. During my PhD I studied the interplay between metabolism, cell cycle and signalling, mainly focusing on the Snf1/AMPK pathway. I am currently interested in studying metabolic rewiring caused by different nutrients, generating high-throughput data suitable for modelling.
I hold a Medical Doctor Diploma (Lviv, Ukraine) with the specialization in General Medicine. After the graduation from the Post Graduate Program in Bioinformatics at the Seneca College/York University (Toronto, Canada), I successfully participated in the number of scientific projects conducted at the University of Toronto (Canada) and the Toronto East General Hospital (Canada).
I obtained the PhD in Bioinformatics at the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (Geneva, Switzerland). As a PhD student,
I am PhD student at Prof.Uwe Voelker lab in Department of Functional Genomics. My area of research is microbial functional genomics in particular analysing the whole transcriptome(by microarray and other molecular biolology methods) of B.subtilis under various stress conditions.
I use QconCAT strategy for absolute quantification of carbon metabolic enzymes via MRM(multiple reaction monitoring) by LC-MS/MS.
I also perofrm experiments for understanding of dynamics of SigmaB network for modelling.
Expertise: Genetics, Molecular Biology, Microarray analysis, Bacillus subtilis, phenotypic heterogeneity, gene regulation, stress responses, protein secretion, functional protein expression, microscopy, fluorescence protein fusions (transcriptional and translational), localisation studies
Tools: Genetic modification, Transcriptomics, Microarray analysis, Fluorecence based reporter gene analyses/single cell analyses, Site-directed mutagenesis, Fluorescence microscopy, Flow cytometry, Immunofluorescence, transposon mutagenesis, Molecular biology techniques (RNA/DNA/Protein), DNA affinity chromatography, EMSA
PhD student. Analyzing CcpA affinity to cre boxes (catabolite responsive elements) and response of B. subtilis to membrane protein overproduction stress.
I am pursuing my PhD at Prof. Volker's Lab in the Department of Functional Genomics, EMA Universitat Greifswald, Germany. I am working on the general stress responses mediated by SigB and the prediction of SigB regulon members using the Random forest algorithm.
I have a permanent position at the department of microbiology at the TU-München. As a microbiologist I am interested in the regulation of central metabolism in prokaryotic organisms with different types of energy metabolism such as Clostridia, Bacilli and acetic acid bacteria. Furthermore I worked as a software developer for several years in a bioinformatics company and I am very interested in bioinformatics and handling of large amounts of data.
I obtained my PhD in 1989 at the Free University (Amsterdam) on a research project in which microbial physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology were combined. Subsequently I spent 3 years abroad, 2.5 years of which as EMBO fellow at the EMBL (Heidelberg, Germany) where I worked on protein engineering and protein crystallization. I returned to Amsterdam as KNAW fellow for 3 years, during which I worked on protein analysis and pathway engineering. In 1995 I was appointed as group leader

I started to work with B. subtilis during my diploma thesis in Marburg, analyzing the gene expression pattern during sporulation and their control by the four sporulation sigma factors. This work was continued during my PhD thesis in Greifswald. In collaboration with Prof. Bremer and Prof. Marahiel in Marburg we also studied additional adaptation processes of B. subtilis, like the adaptation to low temperatur and high osmolarity.
I am now working as a staff scientist in Prof. Völkers lab in

My research activities has been to use mathematical models and Computational Biology to answer biological questions, intertwining in silico and experimental methods at all stages. I have a strong interest in exploring the interfaces between Fundamental Biology and bona fide Engineering, specifically in the realm of environmental and industrial problems. The research goals of my group are to contribute to the elucidation of mechanisms underlying basic cellular processes, evolution and ecological
