Ronald van Ree was originally educated in history but switched to biochemistry and immunology, the field in which he defended his thesis at the University of Amsterdam in 1994 on the topic of grass pollen allergens and their interaction with the immune system. From 1994 until 2005 he headed the Allergy Research Laboratory at Sanquin Blood Supply Foundation in Amsterdam. In July 2005 he moved to the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam where he was appointed as Associate Professor at the Department of Experimental Immunology. There he is head of the Laboratory for Allergy Research. In June 2009 Ronald van Ree was appointed as Full Professor of Molecular and Translational Allergology. The main areas of interest of the Allergy Research group are:
Protein-chemistry and molecular biology of respiratory and food allergens: what makes an allergen an allergen?
Innovative approaches for in vitro and in vivo diagnosis of IgE-mediated allergy: from allergen extracts to molecular diagnostics.
Innovative biopharmaceutical approaches for allergen-specific immunotherapy: recombinant technology, novel adjuvants and administration routes.
Immuno-epidemiology of respiratory and food allergies: the role of allergen exposure, environment, diet, infections and lifestyle in the development of allergy.
Mouse models of allergy and asthma: how are sensitization and disease expression regulated?
Ronald van Ree has participated in many EU Framework Program projects, amongst which as co-ordinator of the CREATE project (FP5) developing certified reference materials for allergen products, as vice-coordinator in the Integrated Project (FP6) on Food Allergy, EuroPrevall, in the GLOFAL project (FP6) aiming at integrating food allergy research in developing countries in EU framework program, as co-ordinator of the ongoing project (FP7) on immunotherapy for food allergy FAST (2008-2015), and more recently as ExCom member of the iFAAM project (FP7) on risk management of food allergy. In February 2014 he has taken up the coordinatorship of a new recently granted EU project BM4SIT targeting at innovative approaches for allergen-specific immunotherapy (novel adjuvant in combination with a designed hypo-allergen). He is on the editorial board of several leading journals in the field of allergology, and is associate editor of International Archives of Allergy and Immunology. He is the academic co-chair of the HESI-PATC. Ronald van Ree has published around 275 papers in peer-reviewed journals, and several book chapters.
