Stevin Prize 2018

Project summary

Her research focuses on the transmission of viruses from animals to humans (zoonoses), and on the large-scale spread between humans (outbreaks and pandemics). She uses genetic information found in viruses in the form of DNA or RNA in order to map these infection pathways. The creation of worldwide networks to systematically control infectious diseases on a large scale forms the golden thread in Koopmans’ work.
