Research expertise

Pieter Monsieurs obtained his Master degree of Bioscience Engineering (specialization Cellular and Genetic Engineering) at the K.U. Leuven in 2002. He obtained his PhD in Bioinformatics at the faculty of Applied Sciences of the K.U. Leuven in 2006, focussing on the deciphering of the regulatory network underlying Salmonella typhimurium infections. After a one-year post-doc in the Centre of Microbial and Plant Genetics, he started as bioinformatician at the Belgian Nuclear Research Center (SCK-CEN), where he was leading the computational biology research for 10 years, thereby collaborating with different research unit working on microbiology, radiobiology and ecology. During this period, he obtained a wide expertise in different omics technologies, including metagenomics, genomics and transcriptomics. After a one-year stay as a data scientist at the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO), he started in October 2019 as senior scientist Computational Biology at the Institute of Tropical Medicine, where is affiliated with the three units studying protozoan pathogens i.e. the Trypanosoma unit led by Prof. J. Van Den Abbeele, the Unit of Malariogoy led by Prof. Anna Rosanas-Urgell, and the Unit of Molecular Parasitology led by Prof. JC Dujardin. He gained expertise in single-cell genomics and transcriptomics, and population genomics.
