My dream came true at the NKI


Writing three fellowship proposals during the pandemic really paid off for Italian postdoctoral fellow Claudia Burrello. She got all three, which is quite remarkable. In Karin de Visser’s research group at the Netherlands Cancer Institute Claudia will be investigating a rare subset of immune cells with potential anti-tumor activity. Applying for these fellowships took some blood, sweat and tears: ‘But it was really worth it!”

An exchange program for her Biomedical Science study at the University of Milan offered Claudia Burrello the opportunity to stay in Leiden for one year. After that experience she really wanted to come back to The Netherlands: “I like the Dutch lifestyle: cycling to work, drinking beers after work with colleagues, enjoying life.”
