Frans Claas - Van Loghem Laureaat 2017

“No field benefits more from the CyTOF revolution than immunology” 

Claas describes how the number of HLA alleles went from 65 tot 16,000 different types almost overnight, thanks to sequencing. Even more importantly, new technologies not only enabled complication, but also simplification back to two hundred epitopes. The new insight has made it possible to connect transplantation and reproduction immunology in a mutually beneficial way.

Jon van Rood Medal Award

Van Rood was one of the founders of the Dutch Society for Immunology (NVVI). He has had an influence on transplantation immunology that is beyond understanding. His pioneering work on HLA has guided the field. To highlight the important role of Jon van Rood for the field of immunology and the NVVI, last year the Society decided on a Jon van Rood Medal Award for persons who have made an extraordinary contribution to the field of immunology in the Netherlands. Jon van Rood himself agreed to associate his name with this award.
