Title: “Maintaining Nature’s Perfection: the impact of DNA repair on sustained health”

Jan Hoeijmakers joined the Dept. of Genetics of the Erasmus University in Rotterdam in 1981 to work on DNA repair. His team succeeded in cloning the first of many subsequent human DNA-repair genes allowing elucidation of the reaction mechanism of nucleotide excision repair, discovered the strong evolutionary conservation of DNA repair, resolved the basis of a variety of enigmatic human repair syndromes and identified a new class of ‘basal transcription disorders’. His laboratory generated a comprehensive series of mouse DNA repair mutants, strikingly mimicking the corresponding human syndromes, which provided detailed insight into the complex etiology of human repair diseases.
