Cirion Foundation

the impact of infectious diseases

Hans Kruining

After my retirement in october 2016 as a laboratory manager of the viroscience department of the ErasmusMC, I was asked to join the board of the Cirion foundation as a treasurer This was for me a great opportunity to participate not only in the support of the knowledge of viral infections for secondary schoolchildren in the Netherlands and (sub) tropical countries, but also in the improvement and support in the development of diagnostic tools for (newly discovered) viral infections. Early diagnosis leads to better prevention and control of outbreaks of viral infections in these countries. Therefore the projects, initiated by the Cirion foundation in these countries are of great importance in the field of viral infections, and motivates me to be a member of the Cirion foundation.
