PhD theses

Within Sanquin around 80 PhD students are working on a thesis. In most cases Sanquin Researchers that hold a professorhip at one of the Dutch universities act as supervisor/promotor.

Most PhD students follow courses at those universities, as part of their research training. Sanquin researchers also contribute to these courses. Each year, around 15 PhD theses are defended.
