Van Bekkum thesis award 2016 for Jochem Bernink

Jochem Bernink wins this year's NVVI Thesis Award for 'The biology of human Innate Lymphoid Cells' (ILC). These ILCs are relatively rare in blood and tissue. They have similarities with other lymphocyte types. That is why they have remained under the radar until recently. Bernink identified the ILC1 subset and contributed to unravelling the complex interaction mechanism in which the ILCs play their part. He especially emphasizes the reversible plasticity of ILCs and describes what this means for immunopathology-mediated diseases.

The remarkable plasticity of Innate Lymphoid Cells

Come to his presentation on Thursday December 8 at 17:00, Hall 1A
