His clinical activities are focusing on treating patients with hematological malignancies including stem cell transplantation. His clinical-translational efforts and patient care are driven by his role as Director of the Bone Marrow Transplantation Program at the University Medical Center Utrecht, as well as active membership of the leukemia working party and stem cell working party of HOVON. His current laboratory activities are focusing on the understanding of innate immune cells and their receptors to recognize malignant cells and virally infected cells as well as the genetic engineering of a transplant.
