Paulina Snijders is looking forward to working in Groningen from September 1: “I will be sad to leave Brabant and Tilburg University, where I have had a very pleasant time collaborating with people both within and outside the university community. But I could not pass up this opportunity to return to the world of UMCs, and the UMC Groningen, too. I am thrilled at the prospect of living and working in Groningen, where all the action is going to be in the near future.
