Hester van Zeeburg PhD

Scientist Clinical Assays at Crucell

In 2003 I started my career as a researcher by doing a PhD at the VU University in oncology. After finishing my PhD, I decided to shift gears from oncology to (tumor) immunology, but as a postdoc at the LUMC. The next postdoc was again tumor immunology at the NKI. After 1 year I made the career move to the pharmaceutical industry, to Crucell, a vaccine company based in Leiden. At this moment I’m working there as a scientist clinical assays, which implies that I’m analyzing many clinical trial samples from vaccine studies currently run by Crucell.
