About

Juergen Reichardt rejoined JCU (James Cook University) as an Adjunct Professor in the AITHM (Australian Institute of Tropical Health and Medicine) in retirement.

Juergen most recently served at YachayTech University, founded as the first research-intensive university in Ecuador, as the Vice Chancellor, Research and Innovation, equivalent to the role of a DVCR in Australia or VPR in the US. He previously served as the Head of School, Pharmacy and Molecular Sciences, at JCU as well as in other functions such as Associate Dean, Research for the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Molecular Sciences.

Furthermore, Juergen has a long scientific career beginning in biochemistry and molecular biology which evolved further into molecular epidemiology as well as a long and enduring commitment to human genetics and human genomics. 

Currently, Juergen chairs the International Scientific Advisory Committee for the HVP, the worldwide Human Variome Project, and he also serves on the Diagnostic Scientific Committee (DSC) of IRDiRC, the International Rare Diseases Research Consortium, the management team of G2MC, the Global Genomic Medicine Collaborative, and the scientific advisory board of the Golden Helix Foundation. Juergen cofounded ERCAL a group of scientists, clinicians and patient advocates working on rare diseases in Latin America and the Caribbean. Furthermore, Juergen also serves on some 10 editorial boards and regularly reviews grant applications in various countries. He is an Associate Editor of Human Genomics and on the pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics board for Frontiers in Genetics and Frontiers in Pharmacology.

Lastly, Juergen has lived in seven countries on four continents bringing a truly international perspective to his endeavours. He also enjoys swimming very much.
