Personal details


Hein te Riele (1955) studied chemistry at the University of Groningen and obtained his PhD in 1984 (thesis: "Heterospecific transformation in Bacillus subtilis"; promotor: prof. dr Gerard Venema). He spent 4 years as a postdoctoral fellow at the Institut Jacques Monod in Paris with Dusko Ehrlich and found a novel mechanism of plasmid replication. In 1988, he became a cancer researcher supported by grants from the Dutch Cancer Society. He joined the group of Anton Berns at the Netherlands Cancer Institute, where he helped optimizing procedures for targeted gene modification in mouse embryonic stem cells and generated a mouse model for retinoblastoma. In 1994 he started his own research group and in 2000 he became head of the division of Molecular Biology. Since 2012 he is head of the newly established division of Biological Stress Response. Hein te Riele is professor at the VU University Amsterdam (chair: Genetic instability and carcinogenesis) and member of the Health Council of the Netherlands.
