Nienke ter Haar (MD, PhD) performed her PhD in the Laboratory of Translational Immunology of the University Medical Center Utrecht, focusing on disease mechanisms, therapy and prognosis of systemic autoinflammatory diseases such as systemic onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis, a rare pediatric rheumatic disease. After finishing her PhD, Nienke has worked as a physician in the Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital. Being a clinician-scientist – and mother – she experienced the opportunities and difficulties in combining a career in science and clinics while maintaining a good work-life balance. She is therefore happy to be part of the Pathway project since April 2019.
