Dr Karel Kuijpers, pathologist (Nieuwegein) 

“The dynamic collaboration between the Pathology laboratories and the merger partnership Pathology-DNA of the Jeroen Bosch Hospital, St. Antonius Hospital Utrecht/Nieuwegein, and Rijnstate is a logical response to the changes in healthcare that are following each other ever more rapidly.”

After earning his PhD doing immunological research at the Central Laboratory for the Blood Transfusion Service, Karel Kuijpers (1959) trained to become a pathologist at the Academic Medical Centre in Amsterdam. He then worked as a pathologist in the Leijenburg Hospital and since 2005 in the St. Antonius Hospital Utrecht/Nieuwegein. He currently works as a medical manager.
