Prof. Han Brunner

Henri Gerrit (Han) Brunner (MD, PhD), Professor of Human Genetics at Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Center, and Maastricht University Medical Center, the Netherlands. Han Brunner is full professor and head of the department of Human Genetics at Nijmegen University Hospital, and of Maastricht University Medical Center, in the Netherlands. He served as board member of the Dutch, European (president in 2014-2015) and American Societies of Human Genetics. He was elected member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the Academia Europea. Han Brunner discovered a large number of disease genes, by applying cutting- technologies (genomic microarrays, exome sequencing, and whole genome sequencing) to understand genetic diseases. Much of his work is on neurodevelopmental conditions such as intellectual disability and abnormal behaviour. His work has established that in non-consanguineous populations, the major cause of intellectual disability lies in spontaneous new mutations. The work of his group has further shown that in tertiary Pediatric Neurology practice, the exome-first approach is cost-effective and yields superior diagnostic yield to conventional clinician-driven examination.
