Prof. dr. Jacky Snoep studied Biology with majors in Microbiology and Biochemistry at the University of Amsterdam and obtained his degree in 1988. He obtained his PhD degree from that same university in 1992. Afterwards, Snoep worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Florida (United States) and at the Netherlands Cancer Institute.
In 1994, Snoep moved to VU University Amsterdam where he worked as assistant/associate professor. In 2010, he was appointed as full professor in ‘Systems Biology in silico’. Snoep is also appointed at Stellenbosch University (South Africa), where he holds a prestigious SARCHI research chair, and at the University of Manchester (United Kingdom). He is member of the editorial board of FEBSJ, Microbiology, IEE Systems Biology and Metabolomics.
Snoep follows a systems biology approach to study metabolism from the enzyme kinetic level up to whole body systems. He uses mechanistic mathematical models, based on detailed enzyme kinetic studies, to get a quantitative understanding of the dynamics of the underlying systems, which are helpful in predicting effects of perturbations in intervention (health and epidemiology) and production (biotechnology) studies.
