Quality Assurance (QA) Specialist

The Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology is a unique interdisciplinary institute that brings together all the highly complex care, research, and education to provide the best possible care for children with cancer. This concentration and integration of specialized pediatric oncology reflect our mission: to provide a cure and optimal quality of life for every child with cancer. Close cooperation between care and research will lead to more children being cured of cancer, with fewer adverse effects later in life.

The Princess Máxima Centre has initiated the design and building of a new Cell and Gene Therapy Facility (CGTF). In this facility, manufacturing Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) will be our primary goal. Next to that we will participate in translational research.
