Meet the Editor

Marc VeldhoenMarc Veldhoen, Ph.D. studied Medical Biology at the Faculty of Medicine, Utrecht University, the Netherlands. He went on to pursue his post doctorate at the National Institute for Medical Research (Mill Hill), UK, within Dr. Brigitta Stockinger’s group, where he obtained his Ph.D. in 2003. During his postdoctoral studies he stood at the basis of the description of novel T helper cell subsets; Th17 and Th9, and showed a direct link between environmental pollutants with enhanced Th17 cell responses and autoimmunity. Since 2010 he has been a group leader at the Babraham Institute in Cambridgeshire, UK. Here he continues to build upon the research he conducted at NIMR focussing on the role of the arylhydrocarbon receptor (AhR). His article in Cell provides insight into AhR activity that can be regulated in the intestine by dietary compounds found in leafy green vegetables. His research established a direct link between dietary phytochemicals and the maintenance of epithelial immune cells. He was awarded a prestigious 2010 ERC Starting Independent Research grant, and selected into the esteemed EMBO young investigator programme in 2011. His laboratory focus provides insights into the mechanisms that control the maintenance of resident populations of micro-organisms, and the prevention of undesirable immune responses that may result in chronic infections, allergies and autoimmunity.
