Vacancy: Post-doc Scientist Molecular biology / Biochemistry / Immuno-Oncology

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a devastating disease with a high mortality. Patients often need the immunotherapeutic effect of an allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT) to be cured. We have demonstrated that AML patients who are cured after allogeneic HCT develop AML-specific antibody responses. Some of these antibodies with broad reactivity against AML cells of patients have the potential to be further developed into therapeutic antibodies.

Highest academic awards

This year, six scientists receive the highest awards in Dutch science, the Spinoza Prize or the Stevin Prize. The researchers receive the award for their excellent, pioneering and inspiring work. While the Spinoza Prize focuses on scientific work and fundamental issues, the Stevin Prize primarily honors the social impact. The laureates will each receive 2.5 million euros.  Sjaak Neefjes and Ton Schumacher are two of the awarded scientists.

In Memoriam Huib Ovaa

On the 19th of May 2020, our dear colleague and friend Professor Dr. Huib Ovaa passed away at the age of 46. In the past year, after being diagnosed with prostate cancer, Huib underwent a variety of treatments. Always with his usual optimism. He continued to work as much as possible and tried to keep the burden of his fight against cancer away from the people around him.

6th Chemical Immunology Conference & ICI PhD Day CANCELLED

We had been looking forward very much to meeting all of you at our next ICI Conference. Due to multiple cancellations, including some from speakers, and due to the expectation that more cancellations will follow due to the Corona Virus outbreak, we unfortunately have to cancel the upcoming 6th ICI Conference. We regret this decision very much. We will inform you within the next few weeks if the Conference will be held at a later date this year.

With kind regards,
The organizers of the 6th ICI Conference
