Dr. Rossen has a 30-year history in molecular virology and microbiology and is Professor for Medical Microbiology, in particular Personalised Microbiology, at the University of Groningen. His group “Personalised Microbiology” has implemented NGS into clinical microbiology and infection prevention and is now focusing on implementing metagenomics and metatranscriptomics. These methods are applied to patient-, animal-, food-and water-samples.
