Assistant Professor,  September 2006 – August 2017

Department of Infectious DiseasesLeiden University Medical Center,  the Netherlands

Main interest: immunology and genetics of (myco)bacterial infections.

● Clinical research focus:

–  Identification of genetic defects in patients with the immunodeficiency Mendelian susceptibility to mycobacterial disease (MSMD).

–  Development of therapeutic strategies to treat MSMD patients.

● Basic research focus:

–  Development of in vitro expression models to study the effects of variations and mutations in the IL-12/IFN-gamma signaling pathways
–   Study the IL-12/IFN-gamma signaling pathways and the cell types involved (in healthy individuals)
–   Identify genes and molecules involved in host susceptibility to (bacterial) infections.
