Jesper Grud Skat Madsen is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark. He obtained his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology in 2016 from the University of Southern Denmark in 2016. Afterwards, he was a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Professor Susanne Mandrup at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark. In 2019, he was recruited into the Center for Functional Genomics and Tissue Plasticity (ATLAS) and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology as a Junior Group Leader and he was appointed Assistant Professor of Computational Biology in 2020. The Madsen group focuses on developing methods to understand transcriptional regulation underlying the remarkable plasticity of fully differentiated tissues. The group uses advanced statistical techniques, such as machine learning to identify novel patterns and rules underlying transcriptional control of tissue plasticity of adipose tissue and liver in health and disease.
