Prof. Cisca Wijmenga has been Professor of Human Genetics at the University of Groningen and head of the Genetics Department of the University Medical Center Groningen since 2007. The aim of her research is to understand the role that genes play in the development of chronic diseases. Her research group focuses on the genetics of inflammation-related conditions, such as coeliac disease (gluten allergy) and inflammatory intestinal disease (e.g. Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis). Research led by Wijmenga has discovered several genes that are involved in causing such immune-related disorders. This knowledge is leading to new insights into the disease process, and could possibly result in new treatments for patients.

Prof. Wijmenga has been elected a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) in 2012. Members of KNAW are all prominent academics from all disciplines and are chosen on the basis of nominations from within and outside the Academy. In the same year she received a prestigious ERC Advanced Grant for her research project on Celiac disease. The BBMRI-NL2.0 project, a collaboration led by Wijmenga between biobanks in the Netherlands, received EUR 9.8 million from NWO in 2014. In 2015 Wijmenga has been awarded a Spinoza Prize, also referred to as the 'Dutch Nobel Prize'.

In 2019 Wijmenga has been appointed as Rector Magnificus of the University of Groningen. She is the first female rector in the 405-year history of the UG.
