Dr. Barthel received his M.D. degree from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam prior to joining the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston to pursue a postdoctoral position in glioma genomics. He research is focused on transcriptional and epigenetic profiling of gliomas and in understanding the genomic basis of telomere maintenance in cancer.
