We are pleased to welcome Oncode Investigator Marvin Tanenbaum (Hubrecht Institute) to Oncode’s Research Management Committee (RMC). Marvin will replace Oncode Investigator Thijn Brummelkamp (NKI), who was part of the RMC for 4 years.

The Research Management Committee advises Oncode on research related themes, such as the scientific strategy, new OI recruitment, establishing the Oncode scientific community and the appropriation of scientific funds.

Ester Frische, Head of Research & Community Support at Oncode Institute, says: “I’d like to thank Thijn for his active contribution to the RMC. He has helped to build Oncode Institute since the start. We value his constructive feedback, his expertise and his ambassadorship for basic science. I’m pleased that Marvin will join the RMC and I look forward to working with him in the future.”

Specialized immune cells carry potential for new cancer immunotherapies
Oncode Investigators Emile Voest, Ton Schumacher and Lodewyk Wessels (all NKI), together with scientists from Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) have discovered how specialized immune cells can detect and remove cancers that are ‘invisible’ to the conventional defense mechanisms of the immune system. The findings could lead to novel cancer immunotherapies. Their work is published today in Nature.

New technique to detect T cells that recognize a patient’s tumor
Oncode Investigators Emile Voest and Ton Schumacher together with Wouter Scheper (all NKI) have developed a new technique that can map out molecules on the tumor cells in individual cancer patients that are recognized by T cells. This new technology is an important step toward personalized immunotherapy. Their findings were published today in Nature Biotechnology.
