Personal profile

Personal information

Henry Vischer studied biology at the Utrecht University. He then joined the Neurobiology department at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York (1997-1998) to investigate ligand-binding pockets of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). His PhD project (1998-2003) at the Utrecht University focused on cloning, profiling, and ligand-receptor interactions between gonadotropins and their cognate GPCRs. He was awarded the Organon Research Prize for Endocrinology (2003). As postdoctoral fellow (2003-2008) in the Department Medicinal Chemistry at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam he was involved in molecular GPCR pharmacology, signaling and receptor-receptor interactions of (viral) chemokine receptors. He obtained a Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) Veni (2005), Netherlands Genomics Initiative (NGI) Horizon Breakthrough (2008), and NWO ECHO (2012) grant. In 2009 he was appointed assistant professor in the same department and currently focuses on molecular GPCR pharmacology, and in particular on biased signaling, receptor residence time and multiplex biosensor assay development.
