Korneel Hens

Group Leader

Korneel Hens graduated as a biochemist at the University of Leuven before starting a PhD at the same university studying substrate specificity of insect angiotensin converting enzymes. As a post-doc in the lab of Patrick Callaerts he used micro-array and cell culture experiments to identify transcriptional targets of Drosophila paired box transcription factors. Korneel then joined the lab of Bart Deplancke at the EPFL in Switzerland, developing novel technologies for protein-DNA interaction mapping.

 Korneel arrived in Oxford in 2012, taking up a group leader position at the Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour. His lab continues developing next generation technologies for gene regulatory network mapping, but also focusses on applying these techniques to study the transcriptional regulation of behaviour.
