Boudewijn Burgering is a Professor in Signal Transduction and head of the research section Molecular Cancer Research of the CMM at the UMCU. Boudewijn is also head of the Graduate School Cancer, Stem Cells and Development (CSnD), a visiting scientist to NCBS/InStemm Institute in Bangalore and a visiting Professor Second College of Clinical Medicine of Guangzhou, China. Boudewijn is running together with Prof Dr Nanda Verhoeven Duif the Utrecht Centre for Medical Metabolomics that provides services and expertise to researchers that wish to study metabolism within the context of their research. Also at MCR [email protected] is located, which provides support in proteomics for the UMCU. Boudewijn is an elected member of EMBO and reviewer for the ERC, has been rewarded a VICI grant in 2002 and participates in the Dutch consortium on cancer research (CGC.nl). The past work mainly focussed on the function of proteins within signalling networks and to decipher the molecular lay-out of signalling networks. This has led to important and highly cited discoveries e.g. PKB/AKT downstream of PI3Kinase (together with Prof. Paul Coffer). Current work has expanded towards other signalling networks most importantly the involvement of metabolism in signalling and cell fate determination but also redox-signalling in collaboration with Dr Tobias Dansen.
