Leiden University Medical Centre

The LUMC is a modern knowledge centre. The more than 7000 staff members of the LUMC strive to improve patient care through scientific research. We offer many educational courses and continuing education to train doctors for this purpose. The LUMC focuses on top clinical and highly specialised care: the complex medical issues for which there are often no answers yet. With patient care and research labs under one roof, patients, doctors and researchers collaborate to develop new treatment methods.

Prof. Dr Tom Ottenhoff has longstanding and internationally recognized expertise in the fields of immunology, immunopathology, immunogenetics and cell biology of infectious diseases caused by mycobacteria, particularly leprosy and tuberculosis. He has made several recognized contributions to the characterisation of the human T cell response against mycobacterial pathogens, including the identification of many novel antigens and epitopes, and the cellular and molecular mechanisms that control immunity to mycobacteria. Furthermore, Tom Ottenhoff is part of several international consortia focusing on tuberculosis.
