Elmer Stickel

Ph.D. student


In 2016, I obtained my MSc degree in Biomedical Sciences. In addition, as entrepreneur in the field of camera surveillance prior to my studies, I gained experience with processing data & image recognition by developing automated analyses of camera footage. I integrated my affinity with data analysis in my studies. During my first master internship, I analysed WGS data from one hundred neuroblastoma patients to identify unknown predispositions. In my subsequent internship in the Brummelkamp lab I laid the foundation for a database & web-based platform for the visualization & comparison of genetic screens ( I started my PhD in 2017 on a collaborative project between the Brummelkamp and Wessels lab working on the analysis of 'behavioural patterns' of genes using machine learning. The ultimate goal of this project is to build a comprehensive genotype-phenotype map of the human cell.
