Edward Knol is a biomedical scientist and immunologist in the departments of Immunology and Dermatology/Allergology at the University Medical Center Utrecht. He did his PhD training in the Blood Transfusion Service of the University of Amsterdam and had a postdoc position at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. His scientific research focuses on allergic diseases, in particularly eczema and food allergy. The research focusses on 1) improved insights in pathomechanisms, 2) explore new treatment options, 3) improve current diagnostics and establish new diagnostics platforms. In his career Edward Knol discovered CD63 as the basophil activation marker, described the important role of the peanut allergen Ara h 2 and described A20/TNFAIP3 dysregulation in atopic dermatitis. He is involved in several (inter)national collaborations and is Secretary General of the Dutch Society of Immunology (~1400 members).

Within the University Medical Center he holds a teaching position and chairs the education committee of the University Utrecht graduate school Immunity and Infection (50 master and 170 PhD students).
