Sjaak Neefjes (1959) is a leading international researcher in cellular immunology. He studies how cells regulate the immune system and communicate that they are infected. Neefjes has thought of new techniques to make reactions in cells visible and to manipulate them so that he can track processes in healthy and diseased cells. Neefjes’ approach is highly original and multidisciplinary, and many of his findings have already found their way into clinical applications.
