Björn Menten is professor in Human Molecular Cytogenetics and Genome Research at the Center for Medical Genetics in Ghent. His research group has a longstanding expertise in the identification of genes causal for (neuro)developmental disorders. In the last years, the introduction of arrayCGH helped in the identification of several new recurrent microdeletion/-duplication syndromes, the refinement of several critical regions for deletion syndromes, and the identification of genes responsible for mental retardation and congenital abnormalities. His research group is currently focusing on genes involved in mental retardation identified by arrayCGH screening in large cohorts of patients.
