How it can help you

The goal of this facility is to work closely with researchers to develop new monoclonal antibodies, suited for specific basic research or clinical applications. This project employs a new and very efficient cellular immunization method in mice. With this method, antibodies can be raised against for instance low immunogenic membrane proteins. In addition, this facility can make antibodies against conformational epitopes and generate agonistic and antagonistic antibodies.

After her study of Biomedical Sciences at Utrecht University, Jacqueline finished her PhD in virology and functional genetics at the Netherlands cancer institute. She then moved to Denmark to do a postdoc in ancient pathogens and genomics at the University of Copenhagen. At Oncode, Jacqueline is working on the technology focussed programmes such as the Drug Repurposing, Equipment & Infrastructure, and Technology Access programmes. She also likes to engage the younger Oncode community and is therefore for instance co-organizing the Oncode postdoc retreats.
