We welcome Victor Peperzak at the LTI. Victor started his junior research group within the section applied September 15th. He will focus on tumor immunological aspects of hematological (B cell mediated) malignancies and thereby also support our translational and clinical activities within the Department of Hematology at the UMC Utrecht Cancer Center. He is a more than welcome and strategically important support, which will allow to further connecting the focus programs I&I and CANCER at multiple layers.
Victor obtained his PhD at the NKI, worked during a postdoc period in Australia at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI), had then as VENI awardee a short intermezzo at the AMC and just recently got granted the very prestigious KWF - Bas Mulder award, which he will implement at the UMC Utrecht.
