Antoine van Kampen heads the Bioinformatics Laboratory at the AMC and holds the chair Biological and Biomedical Information Science with a special focus on Medical Bioinformatics. This chair is established by the Genootschap ter bevordering van natuur-, genees- en heelkunde together with the Faculty of Science. Van Kampen has a parttime position in the Biosystems Data Analysis group of the Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences (SILS) of the University of Amsterdam to facilitate collaborations between the AMC and the Science Faculty.
