Niels Stensen Fellowship for Jorieke Weiden

Jorieke Weiden, theme Cancer development and immune defense, was recently awarded a grant from the Niels Stensen Fellowship. Since the 1960s, the Niels Stensen Fellowship has been awarded annually to outstanding researchers who recently received their PhD to enable them to gain research experience at a top university or institute abroad. Jorieke will use this personal grant to fund a postdoc at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland. Here, she will work in the lab of Prof. Bastings to engineer DNA-based artificial T cells to study tolerance induced by dendritic cells.
