Bio:

Rogier Reijmers performed his Ph.D. in the lab of Professor Steven Pals where he specialized in B cell development and cancers. After acquiring his Ph.D., he continued his academic career in the lab of Dr. Tom Cupedo where he worked on lymph node function and how B cell follicle formation is regulated by innate lymphoid cells. During this period, he successfully obtained a highly prestigious VENI scholarship of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research, which he used to further study lymph node function in the control of innate lymphoid cell and T cell function. He performed this work in the lab of Prof. Reina Mebius. Here, he extended his knowledge on how the lymph node microenvironment supports B cell malignancies and was awarded a scholarship from the Cancer Center Amsterdam. Finally, he moved to the lab of Dr. Mirjam Heemskerk, a leading expert in the identification, characterization, and subsequent engineering of human T cell receptors (TCRs). Dr. Reijmers was responsible for all the preclinical work using the identified TCRs. During his academic career, he published nearly 30 papers in many prominent journals including Blood, the Journal of Clinical Investigation, and Nature Communications. Currently, as an expert in Immunology and Hematology, Dr. Reijmers is the Principal Scientist at LUMICKS where he acts as an advisor for product strategy and monitors the scientific integrity for immuno-oncology.
