Cohen, Adrian

Adrian Cohen obtained a first class honours degree (BSc) in Pharmacology at the University of Sunderland in 1998. In 2001, I obtained my doctoral degree from the University of Glasgow and studying the mechanism of action of two purine-analogues against a Toxoplasma gondii parasite. In 2001, I joined Galapagos Genomics as a junior group leader (responsible for the incorporation of proteomics technologies into the Company's platform for the validation of gene targets for Psoriasis, Osteoporosis and Alzheimer's disease) and in 2004 joined Prof. Stunnenberg's lab at the RIMLS as a postdoctoral researcher (analysis of histone modifications in Malaria parasite). In 2005 I became the project manager for a number of EU FP6 projects and in April 2007 became a full-time scientific manager for RIMLS. My formal position with the Radboudumc was as a research policy advisor where I was responsible for scientific manangement and strategy at RIMLS until the end of 2016. Since January 2017, I have moved on to become a Senior Scientific Policy Advisor at Erasmus MC in Rotterdam.
