Over Arjan van Laarhoven

We have therefore initiated the Radboud Mycobacterial Cohort Study (‘MyCoS’, CMO NL2021-13231) to systematically collect clinical, microbiological and immunological data of our patients, to eventually improve their care. Internationally, I participate as a postdoctoral researcher in two NIH-funded projects on tuberculous meningitis, aimed at metabolomics (‘ULTIMATE’) and proteomics (‘INTERCEPT’) to understand the immunopathophysiology and design targeted treatment. My PhD thesis "Host response in relation to tuberculosis susceptibility is available at
