Biography

Wim Jiskoot graduated as a pharmacist in 1987 and received his PhD degree in 1991 at Utrecht University on pharmaceutical aspects of monoclonal antibodies. As a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Utah (1991-1993) he studied protein-ligand interactions using biophysical techniques. From 1994-1998 he was head of the Department of Bacterial Vaccine Development at the National Institute of Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), Bilthoven. In 1998 he became a staff member at the Department of Pharmaceutics, Utrecht University, where he focused his research on formulation and physicochemical characterization of therapeutic proteins and vaccines. In March 2006 he was appointed as full professor at the Division of Drug Delivery Technology, LACDR, and as the coordinator of the Biologics Research Platform Leiden (BRPL). His current research is concentrated on two themes: (1) formulation and unwanted immunogenicity of therapeutic proteins and (2) vaccine delivery.
