Jurgen Del-Favero

Jurgen Del-Favero is a Belgian scientist working at the VIB Department of Molecular Genetics at the University of Antwerp. His research is directed towards the identification of susceptibility genes for psychiatric disorders[1][2] and tools for DNA sequence research.[3] His research, in collaboration with the Swedish research group under the direction of Rolf Adolfsson, indicated that the TPH2 protein is involved in the development of depression and manic depression.[4][5][6]

He obtained a PhD at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Brussels, Belgium) in 1995. He has been VIB Group leader since 2003 and is Associate Professor at the University of Antwerp since 2005.
