Candidate selected: Timo Peters
My name is Timo Peters, born and raised in Tilburg, the Netherlands. After finishing high school I moved to Utrecht to start a Bachelors in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Utrecht. Later I started a Masters in Biology of Disease at the same university. In the 2 years of my Masters I wrote my thesis at the NCI in Amsterdam and did my diploma at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology in Oxford. Here I got acquainted with basic and translational research in T cell immunology. After being in contact with professor Johannes Huppa a couple of times I decided to start a PhD focussed on the molecular mechanisms of CAR-T cell cancer immunotherapy at the Medical University of Vienna.
