Dr D.G.J. Jennen
is Associate Professor in the field of toxicoinformatics at the Department of Toxicogenomics and he heads its core unit on toxicoinformatics. His research focuses on the development of complex bioinformatics models using a systems biology/toxicology approach and on constructing functional networks based on integrating multi-omics and phenotypic data. His work has been published in over 90 peer-reviewed publications (h-index 33). Within various multicenter (inter)national projects (from the Netherlands Toxicogenomics Centre, the EU FP6 & 7 Integrated Projects carcinoGENOMICS and diXa, the EU Horizon 2020 Project EU-ToxRisk, and IMI2 Project transQST) he was/is involved in the bioinformatics work on toxicogenomics in cancer hazard and toxicity assessment. He coordinated the DECO2 project (Cefic-LRI AIMT4) on the use of non-animal data to supplement and strengthen read-across, commissioned by CEFIC, the European Chemical Industry Council. In addition, he was work package leader in the EU Horizon 2020 Project OpenRiskNet and in the national project BReIN on the development of an e-infrastructure for neurohealth. Currently, he is leading the work package on data management and quality control of the EU Horizon 2020 Project ONTOX. Being a certified data protection officer (DPO) will be beneficial for this role. Furthermore, he is a member of the HESI emerging Systems Toxicology for Assessment of Risk (eSTAR) Committee and of the International Workshops on Genotoxicity Testing expert work group (IWGT EWG) on TGX Biomarkers for Genetic Toxicity.
