Kennislink: Interview met Martijn Verdoes
'Een tumor zorgt heel goed voor zichzelf' Met een chemische valstrik wil Martijn Verdoes tumoren aanpakken. Het listige gedrag van tumoren is angstaanjagend. Tumoren weten namelijk cellen van het immuunsysteem zodanig te manipuleren dat ze de tumor gaan helpen. Chemicus Martijn Verdoes werkt aan manieren om de verdedigingswal van de tumor te doorbreken en de bad guys weer aan de goede kant te krijgen.
