Over dit evenement

Organizing committee:

Dr. Bart van den Bemt, Outpatient Pharmacist, St. Maartenskliniek & Radboudumc Prof. Mart van de Laar, Rheumatologist, Medisch Spectrum Twente & Univ. Twente Prof. Menno Prins, Eindhoven University of Technology

Date: Friday 30th of August 2019

Time: 12:30-18:00

Location: Eindhoven University of Technology, Atlas building

Accredited for 5 ½ hours:

  • NVR (Ned. Ver. v. Reumatologie)
  • NVZA (Ned. Ver. v. Ziekenhuisapothekers),
  • KNMP (Kon. Ned. Maatsch. ter bevord. der Pharmacie).

The program contains lectures on upcoming technologies for clinical immunology, in the fields of therapy, monitoring, and clinical data. The lectures will be followed by a discussion on the translation to the clinic and impact on patients. The discussion will be moderated by the organizing committee.

The course is co-located with the international SensUs competition, with theme “Managing rheumatic disease by measuring with ease” (see

    Brief introduction of the speakers

    Nanoparticles: new immunological medicines

    Willem Mulder and Roy van der Meel are professor and assistant professor of Precision Medicine at the department of Biomedical Engineering of Eindhoven University of Technology. Their research focuses on precision imaging and targeted therapy. They have established a library encompassing nanomaterials derived from natural lipoproteins, which allows meticulously designing nano-immunotherapies. The overarching goal is to institutionalize nanotechnologies for precision immunotherapy and immuno-imaging.[read more]

    Sensor technology for continuous immuno-monitoring

    Healthcare is in demand of technologies for real-time sensing in order to continuously guard the state of patients. Eindhoven University of Technology is developing novel technologies for the continuous monitoring of biomarkers, such as small molecules, proteins, and nucleic acids. Dr. Sergelen will give an overview of the field of continuous monitoring and focus on upcoming solutions to enable the monitoring of patients receiving immuno-therapies. [read more]

    Biomarkers & big data for clinical immunology

    Johannes Textor leads the Computational Immunology group at the department of Tumor Immunology at the Radboud Institute of Molecular Life Sciences. The group develops and applies computational models and statistical methods for biomedical research. Both Computational Immunology and Artificial Immune Systems are the main fields of his expertise. He applies tools and methods of math and computer science to immunological questions. An example is the model that was built around the immune systems cell repertoires that process and store information.[read more]

    Immunodiagnostics, past, present and future

    Marien de Jonge has a background in both academic research and industrial R&D. He is Associate Professor at Radboud University Medical Center and head of the laboratory of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, where he studies how pathogens and the immune system interact. He will speak about the transition that is taking place from the measurement of single biomarkers using complex time-consuming diagnostic assays, to the measurement of dynamic profiles of multiple immune parameters, for improving diagnostics and personalized treatment.
