Kornelia Neveling 2018

Kornelia Neveling studied Biology at the Heinrich-Heine-University in Düsseldorf, Germany, and subsequently performed her PhD in Human Genetics at the Julius-Maximilians-University Würzburg, Germany. In her PhD thesis, she studied the molecular causes and consequences of genetic instability syndromes, with a special interest in Fanconi anemia. In 2009, she started as a postdoc in a research group of the Department of Human Genetics of the Radboud university medical center Nijmegen, where she learned all about next generation sequencing. Among other NGS-based projects, she implemented an NGS-based test for the routine diagnostics of hereditary retinal diseases, and was involved in the implementation of whole exome sequencing in routine DNA diagnostics. Since 2011 she is working in the sequencing facility of the same department, where she is translating newest research developments into routine DNA diagnostics.
