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


    When breast cancer has spread to lymph nodes in the armpit, extensive imaging studies are performed and tumour characteristics are determined prior to surgical removal. 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.

  • CIAO

    Centre of Expertise for Inclusive Organisations (CIAO) | A contribution to Dutch law


    The Centre of Expertise for Inclusive Organisations (CIAO) is an institute of Maastricht University, founded in 2016 in close collaboration with the Dutch Employee Insurance Agency, UWV (Uitvoeringsinstituut WerknemersVerzekeringen). CIAO offers a knowledge platform for parties working professionally towards promoting sustainable participation in the labour market, both for those working and those searching for jobs, and especially those who are not able to participate in the current labour market independently. To further this, CIAO does scientific and practice-oriented research. It also develops various practical tools.

    This years, CIAO’s approach to inclusive organisations was integrated in a new article for the SUWI law (Structure executive organisation work and income). We talked to Professor Fred Zijlstra about that approach.
