Radiotherapy & OncoImmunology Laboratory

Department of Radiation Oncology



Marleen Ansems - assistant professor

After finishing my PhD at the department of Tumor Immunology in Nijmegen, I moved to the US in 2012 where I started working on a KWF fellowship studying the role of TAM receptors in anti-tumor immunity at the department of Immunobiology, Yale School of Medicine. In 2015 I moved back to the Netherlands.

Currently I am still working on my KWF fellowship and working on a VENI grant where I am investigating the role of NR4A nuclear receptors in Dendritic Cells at the laboratory of Radiotherapy & OncoImmunology, department of Radiation Oncology.
