Joris de Wit
Joris de Wit obtained his PhD degree at the VU University (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) in 2004. He performed his postdoctoral training with Matthijs Verhage (VU University, The Netherlands; 2004-2006) and Anirvan Ghosh (University of California San Diego, USA; 2006-2012). In 2013, he started the Laboratory of Synapse Biology at the VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research. Work in his laboratory aims to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms that determine where and when synapses form; how these connections change with experience, and how they are affected in disease. Joris de Wit is recipient of an ERC Starting Grant and FWO Odysseus grant.
