Dr. Josephine M.I. Vos, MD, PhD

Josephine Vos

I am a clinical hematologist at the Amsterdam UMC location AMC. I specialize in B-cel Non-Hodgkin lymphoma particularly Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia and auto-immune phenomena secondary to paraproteins (often of the IgM type – IgM related disorders including rare neuropathies, nefropathies, complement mediated hemolysis etcetera). I am also part of LYMMCARE (Lymphoma and Myeloma Center Amsterdam). My other field of interest is auto-immune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) and I am head of the AIHA expertise center at the AUMC.. I have a growing collaboration with the immunohematology  and diagnostics departments of Sanquin. For both disease categories I am involved in clinical trials with novel agents.
