Postdoctoral fellow on research into T cell therapies

Erasmus MC, Medical Oncology
full-time working week of 36 hours

Adoptive therapy with T cell receptor (TCR)-engineered T cells has demonstrated objective responses in multiple types of tumors, including hard-to-treat solid tumors. To further advance adoptive T cell therapy, it is imperative to counteract deficits in immune control that give way to tumor recurrence. Recurrence of tumor cells is considered a consequence of shortcomings in local CD8 T cell immunity, which in turn is governed by co-stimulatory receptors, such as CD28. In our laboratory, we have designed and tested the therapeutic potential of TCRs equipped with co-stimulatory molecules. These new TCRs provide T cells with the unique ability to activate distinct immune activation and transcriptional programs and demonstrate significant delays in tumor recurrence in immune-competent, tumor-bearing mice.

Biostatistician/Researcher Medical Statistics

UMC Utrecht, Center for Translational Immunology
Post-doc

The International HLA & Immunogenetics Workshop (ihiw18.org) is a recurring consortium effort aiming at stimulating immunogenetics and transplantation-related research, in order to facilitate rapid translation of new technology and knowledge to patient care. To this end, various projects have been set up, covered by three main components; Antigenicity & Immunogenicity, Immunogenetics, and Bioinformatics. You will be involved in the construction and maintenance of the research databases and in data acquisition and analyses. Moreover, you may be involved in writing algorithms to analyze the big data sets that will be collected, particularly to identify HLA antibody- and T cell epitopes. You are also expected to facilitate data communication between the different research centers worldwide involved in the projects. This work will be performed at the Center for Translational Immunology of the UMCU in Utrecht, in close collaboration with the Department of Immunohematology and Blood Transfusion of the LUMC in Leiden. Together, these two department are coordinating all activities for the 18th International HLA & Immunogenetics Workshop.

POSTDOC POSITION: TUMOR IMMUNOLOGY

UMC Utrecht, Centre for Molecular Medicine
full time

Approximately 50% of all human colorectal tumors develop distant metastases. Surgery for metastatic disease remains the only hope for cure. Systemic therapies, including chemotherapy and EGFR- and VEGF targeting antibodies have prolonged median overall survival to approximately 2 years, but have little effect on long-term survival. Immune checkpoint inhibitors are currently being tested for their therapeutic value and are expected to improve long-term survival. Such therapies may also be effective in other subtypes, possibly as part of combination treatment strategies. Unfortunately, the immune-suppressive activity of tumor-associated Treg cells represents a major hurdle for effective antitumor immunity, but highlighting their potential as an immunotherapeutic target. For this reason, there is considerable interest in the possible synergistic opportunities of combining Treg cell-targeted therapies with other modalities, such as immune checkpoint blockade, immune agonists, tumor-specific vaccines, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. However, increased knowledge into mechanisms underlying Treg accumulation, function, and their role in metastasis and therapy resistance needs to be gained before such approaches can be clinically tested. Rational design of such strategies in CRC requires a thorough understanding of the tumor-immune niche, and in particular the role of T regulatory (Treg) cells which is currently lacking. Here, through the isolation and characterization of CRC-associated Treg cells together with the development and application of novel organoid based in vitro model systems for studying Treg cell-tumor interactions, we will advance our understanding of the tumor-immune niche. This information can be used to test and develop novel treatment strategies against CRC tumors. A major aim of the work is to translate fundamental research results into clinically useful tools and novel therapeutic strategies.

Postdoc B-T cell immunity (I&V-IIV-051)

National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), Centre for Immunology of Infectious Diseases and Vaccines
Post-Doc

Understanding a normal B cell response is of great importance. Malfunctioning of this response can lead to uncontrolled B cell proliferation and differentiation, and formation of autoreactive or malignant B cell memory and (auto)antibodies. You will investigate the initiation of human B cell immunity after infection and vaccination. You will dissect which molecular and cellular key factors regulate the activation and differentiation of antigen-specific B cells. The focus will be to unravel B-T cell interactions. Your research will use unique clinical infection- or vaccination-cohorts, or population wide cohorts. You will investigate the effects of age and pre-existing antibodies on B cell responses. You will use cell isolation, in vitro cell culture and differentiation systems, multicolour flow cytometry and antibody assays, as well as biomarker analyses at a protein-, RNA- and (epi)genetic-level. In addition, you will provide input on new projects focusing on immunological topics that are relevant for the public health and the national immunization program.
