Aner his MD training (Groningen), he obtained his PhD in the area of immunogene3cs at Leiden University (1983) and spent several years for postdoctoral training at the Weizmann Ins3tute (Israel), where he developed models of experimental autoimmunity. In 1985 he obtained a posi3on at the veterinary faculty in Utrecht. From 1986-1989 he received specialty training in Medical Microbiology in Utrecht University Medical Centre. He was member of Health Council of the Netherlands (Gezondheidsraad), advising the minister with respect to the na3onal vaccina3on program and he is member of the ECDC Scien3fic Advisory Panel on Vaccines and Immuniza3on (EVAG, ECDC Stockholm).
