Research

more »

Research within the Tumor Immunology departments aims at a better understanding of our immune system using molecular-, cell biological and immunological- techniques and is centered around dendritic cells and regulatory T cells which play an important role regulating the immune response. In addition, the interplay between immune- and tumor cells is studied in the tumor microenvironment. An important ativity of the department is the translation of basic research into clinical application.

    Kennislink: Interview met Martijn Verdoes
    'Een tumor zorgt heel goed voor zichzelf' Met een chemische valstrik wil Martijn Verdoes tumoren aanpakken. Het listige gedrag van tumoren is angstaanjagend. Tumoren weten namelijk cellen van het immuunsysteem zodanig te manipuleren dat ze de tumor gaan helpen. Chemicus Martijn Verdoes werkt aan manieren om de verdedigingswal van de tumor te doorbreken en de bad guys weer aan de goede kant te krijgen.
