Søndergaard Jonas Nørskov

Status : Specially Appointed Assis. Prof.
Research Field : Human Single Cell Immunology

I am an Assistant Professor with combined experimental / bioinformatics skills essential for conducting, analyzing, and engineering complex biological experiments on a global scale. I hold an M.Sc. in bioengineering, a Ph.D. in immune regulation, and spent my postdoc years focusing on genome-wide regulation of biological systems by generating and analyzing multi-omics data. I am originally from Denmark, but so far, I have conducted research in five different countries (Japan, US, Denmark, Netherlands, Sweden). I joined the human single cell immunology team at CIDER as an assistant professor in April 2021. My independent research line aims to employ multi-omics experimental techniques and computational algorithms to understand the immune system thoroughly, with a focus on discovering novel treatment strategies for infectious diseases.
