Conny van der Laken MD, PhD
Associate professor, is rheumatologist and principal investigator of translational and clinical advanced imaging studies in rheumatology in Amsterdam, with a particular expertise in Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging.
Rheumatic diseases, PET, moleculair imaging
Jeroen den Dunnen, PhD
Immunologist and Assistant Professor at the AMC. My group studies the induction of inflammation by Fc receptors during infection, rheumatic diseases, and inflammatory bowel disease, with the aim to identify new targets for therapy of these diseases.

Sander Tas, MD, PhD
Internist-Rheumatologist at the Amsterdam Rheumatology and immunology Center, AMC. My translational research has a strong focus on the molecular regulation of inflammation and includes basic research on signal transduction, in particular the role of NF-κB signaling and other pathways in immune-mediated inflammatory diseases, DC vaccination, studies in animal models of arthritis, DCE-MRI and PET-CT imaging, and state-of-the-art tissue analysis (human and rodents).

Lisa van Baarsen, Associate professor, PhD
Starting from a genome-wide expression profiling approach, my research group aims at delineating immune responses in lymphoid organs and synovial tissue during the earliest (preclinical) phases of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) development.
Marleen van de Sande, M.D., PhD
Rheumatologist at the Department of Rheumatology and Clinical Immunology at the Amsterdam UMC location AMC. My clinical and translational research focuses on the immunopathogenesis of the earliest phases of spondyloarthritis.

Joep Grootjans, MD,PhD
Department of Gastroenterology & Hepatology, Amsterdam UMC.
My research focuses at understanding the pathogenesis of immune-mediated diseases with a special interest for inflammatory bowel diseases. As a physician scientist, my ultimate goal is to translate these finding into the discovery of novel therapies.
Mucosal immunology, immunotherapy, inflammatory bowel disease
Professor of Skin and Mucosa Regenerative Medicine, VUMC. Focus on human skin and mucosa biology, in particular animal alternative methods to develop novel therapeutic strategies for treating and preventing human disease. Current focus is developing next generation immune competent skin and mucosa tissue engineered constructs, including organ-on-chip, to understand the (patho)physiology of immune related diseases, sensitization and tolerance with the aim of identifying novel drug targets for personalized as well as general therapeutic strategies.

Prof dr Alexandre E. Voskuyl
Professor of rheumatology, with special interest in systemic autoimmune diseases
Rheumatologist with large clinical experience in the diagnosis and management of patients with rheumatic diseases, in particular systemic autoimmune diseases (SLE, systemic sclerosis, vasculitis). His research focus on (risk factors for) the outcome of patients with systemic autoimmune diseases, and the evaluation of biomarkers (blood, tissue, imaging) and clinical trials in those diseases.
