Professor Dr. Cornelia van Duijn is a professor of Genetic Epidemiology at the Erasmus University Medical Center and Translational Epidemiology at the University of Leiden. For over 25 years, her work has focused on discovering genes involved in age related disorders including Alzheimer disease, glaucoma, dyslipidemia and hypertension.

She has been a leading figure in various international genome wide association consortia including the International Genetics of Alzheimer Disease Project (IGAP) and the ADSP (Alzheimer Disease Sequencing Project). At present, she combines genomics research with high-throughput metabolomics in large scale epidemiological biobanks and organ-on-chip models to translate finding to prevention and care.
