Get ready for a burst of fresh energy in the Lab for Germinal Center Biology! Luc, our dynamic PhD candidate, is set to redefine the boundaries of what FDC can do. Join us in welcoming Luc as he brings passion, expertise, and a dash of brilliance to our collaborative journey. Let's embark on this exciting adventure!
Welcome to the Germinal Center Biology lab!
Our team is dedicated to understand the human germinal center, with a particular focus on stromal cells, the complement system, and glycosylation. We study these key elements to understand B-cell selection and ultimately contribute to the resolution of diseases. Join us on this exciting journey of discovery and impact.

Frequently Asked Clarifications
Here we aim to provide you with essential information to help you better understand our research and how you can be a part of it. If you have any additional questions beyond what is covered here, please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly.
What is the primary focus of your research lab?
We focus on the biology of human germinal centers, in particular how B-cell selection is regulated.
How can I get involved in research conducted at the lab?
Reach out to us for an internship or take a look at our Konjoin page to see which projects need students.
How can I contact the lab or its researchers for inquiries or collaboration requests?
Email is the easiest wat to contact us, you could for instance email Josch Kuhlmann, our fantastic administrator.
What is the lab's commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility in research practices?
We try, but it is hard! We lowered our -80C freezers to -70C, but much more can be done. For this we collaborate with the UU Green Team.
What are the publication and research output records of the lab?
We aim to publish quality research that is usefull to others and share tools that we develop. For a full overview you can go to the publications section.
Are there any internship or volunteer opportunities available for students and aspiring researchers?
Not always, due to limited space, (wo)manpower or funding, but when we do have opportunities we post them on Konjoin. There you can also find joint projects with other research groups.
