Celebrating five years of partnership to drive impact
The Máxima opened in 2018 with the mission of curing every child with cancer, to create an optimal quality of life. The Center combines knowledge and expertise of pediatric oncology care and research under one roof. Their approach of offering tailor-made treatments for each patient is delivering results and increasing chances of survival. It has become one of the top five childhood cancer centers in the world (based on number of patients) and the largest in Europe.
2023 marks the five-year anniversary of the Princess Máxima Center, and with that, we’re celebrating five-years of partnership between the research hospital and Wolters Kluwer. Wolters Kluwer has supported the Máxima since its opening, as one of the Center’s first strategic partners through a combination of financial support and direct access to some of the company’s leading medical point-of -care solutions (UpToDate and Lexicomp). In 2023, part of the funds donated by Wolters Kluwer are being directed to research fellow Rick Admiraal. A pediatrician in training, pediatric oncologist and researcher at the Máxima, Rick was awarded best research paper of 2022 from the Dutch Society of Clinical Pharmacology and Bio pharmacy (NVKFB) (more info here), reflecting his expertise in using statistical modeling to deliver personalized therapy for childhood leukemia and his research in CAR-T therapy (learn more about CAR-T therapy here). The company’s donation also supports their international Outreach Program through twinning programs with several institutions like the Princess Máxima Center in Malawi. These twinning programs are focused on supporting partner hospitals in low and middle-income countries by improving care, education and training, research, and data registration, to help create a world where every child with cancer has equal access to treatment and care
