At March 15, I started as a data steward at the Center for Molecular Medicine (CMM) at the UMC Utrecht in the research group led by Jeroen de Ridder.
Being a data steward, I promote - and advice on how - to practice Open Science, within the privacy regulations and according to the FAIR principles.
In addition, I am one of the members of the DAC (Data Access Committee) for the EGA (European Genome-Phenome Archive), led by Ies Nijman of the UBEC (UMCU Bioinformatics Expertise Core). Especially, I want to contribute to user-friendly, easily comprehensible, straightforward and useful guidelines and/or templates to ensure the different types of omics data will be FAIR “for each other”.
I am very pleased to be part of the X-omics project and look forward to work with you all to achieve great results!
