Yvette van Kooyk specialises in the cell processes that are involved in cancer, HIV/AIDS and infectious diseases. What all these illnesses have in common is the disruption of the immune system owing to the presence or absence of a glycosyl group in certain immune cells. Van Kooyk combines chemistry, biology and medicine and develops nano-medicines that help the immune system fight cancer and other diseases.
