After years of discussions and supporting each other in the exchange of knowledge and research ideas, the B12 Institute and the Erasmus MC, Department of Clinical Chemistry, have decided to further professionalize their collaboration.

Clara Plattel, director and founder of the B12 Institute: ‘I am extremely happy that Erasmus MC, Department of Clinical Chemistry, just like us, sees the added value of professionalization and further realization of our collaboration. I am really looking forward to the next phase: jointly setting up and conducting research at micro and macro level with the highest clinical relevance for our and other patients. In this way we can combine our knowledge and strengths and make a difference in the short and long term with regard to the improvement of the diagnosis and treatment of patients with a B12 deficiency. The newly established B12 Institute Research Foundation will certainly help us with this.’
