The Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology is a new research hospital, which concentrates healthcare, research and education with regard to cancer in children in a single location in Utrecht. The institute aims to provide the highest level of care for all children with cancer and has the ambition to cure all children of cancer and to significantly reduce unwanted side effects. The center brings together the best possible care and scientific research, creating a unique interdisciplinary institute for pediatric oncology in Europe.
The research group of Jan Molenaar at the Princess Maxima Center is specialized in translational research in pediatric solid tumors with a focus on Neuroblastoma. To this purpose we have developed an experimental pipeline which starts with basic molecular biologic research and ends with implementation of new treatment options for pediatric cancer patients. Crucial in this pipeline is the use of high throughput analysis including WGS, scRNAseq, compound screening etc. We are running the compound screening facility in the Maxima and we have initiated the iTHER precision medicine program for pediatric cancer, which has just included 100 patients. Recently we have started a research line on immunologic model systems and interventions in Neuroblastoma.
