Last Saturday our highly appreciated colleague and friend Jasmijn Vogels - van Kampen passed away.

Jasmijn worked as PhD candidate since 2013 at the research laboratory of the department of Urology. She was an enthusiastic researcher who constantly tried to shift the boundaries of our insights into the behavior of malignant cells.

A year ago she was confronted with the "Emperor of All Maladies." She fought like a brave lioness to overcome this disease, unfortunately in vain. She had to deal with several setbacks, but she always stayed positive and kept in touch with her friends and colleagues. When she had to give up the battle  last week, together with her husband Rob, she came to RIMLS to say farewell to her lab-mates. A valuable and intimate moment. A few days later she died  at the age 27 years .

Jasmijn enjoyed life inside and outside the laboratory. She had a close relationship with her lab buddies, with whom she engaged in many (non science) extracurricular activities. She had found a very good balance between doing serious research and enjoying life.

We wish Rob, her family and her friends a lot of love and strength to give Jasmijn's loss a place.
 
On behalf of the Department of Urology,
Gerald Verhaegh and Jack Schalken
