Since many years I have been working in the field of HLA typing, first on serology assays, later at the molecular level. The diagnostic work involves organ transplantation in collaboration and communication with Eurotransplant. I am contributing to the development of new techniques for implementation in the diagnostic lab for HLA typing. For many years I have also been involved in HLA-related research in the field of transplantation and obstetrics.
I did my education at the HLO in Eindhoven in the field of medical microbiology.
