    Research into personalised axillary treatment of breast cancer with lymph node metastases

    14-01-2022

Research initiated at Maastricht UMC+ aims to clarify the extent to which an accurate assessment can be made of possible responses to chemotherapy prior to surgery. As a result, extensive surgery to the armpit may not always be required in the future. The KWF is subsidising the research with € 538,000.

  • Het migratiebeleid staat kansen in de weg in de grensregio’s

    01-12-2016

    Migratierecht en -beleid gaan veelal uit van een eenheid: verblijf en ‘bezigheid’ — werk, studie/stage, onderzoek, et cetera — in één land. Maar diezelfde eenheid levert problemen op in de grensstreken.
