Prof. Sjaak Neefjes is a leading international researcher in the field of cellular immunology. His research focuses on how cells control the immune system and how they make it known that they have been infected. He has developed new techniques to visualise and manipulate responses in a cell, allowing him to follow processes in healthy and diseased cells. He is known for his originality and multidisciplinary approach, and many of his findings are applied in the clinical environment.

Neefjes is a group leader in the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek (Dutch Cancer Institute) and is associated with the LUMC's Immunohematology and Blood Transfusion (IHB) department.

He has been a member of KNAW since 2015.
