MS2013-04: Medical sequencing

The University Medical Center Utrecht (UMC Utrecht) is a leader in the application of next-generation DNA sequencing in the clinic. This technology makes it possible to cheaply and quickly read off the DNA of patients on a large scale. UMC Utrecht is working on a service model for effective and efficient next-generation sequencing for a wide variety of medical applications, for different departments that use DNA technology in their diagnosis, including medical genetics, pathology, microbiology, and immunology. With those groups we are currently working on a comprehensive service model for the provision of diagnostics based on next-generation sequencing.

From the Medical Genetics department you will develop an action plan for medical sequencing within the UMC Utrecht. The emphasis lies in the development of a data plan, in which you develop a clear overview of the next-generation services UMCU going to offer. Moreover you participate in customer research for the different areas of specialization, and help predict the expected demand for NGS-based diagnostics and capacity requirements.

You will be supported by the strategic policy advisor of the Department of Medical Genetics (AMG), under the supervision of Professor Edwin Cuppen, Head of Research at the same department. You work with the lab specialists and bioinformaticians of the various departments.
