Dr.Bhupendra Tank (1960 - 1963)

I was born in Nairobi and went to Juja Road Primary and Eastleigh Secondary schools. I completed my 'A' levels at Highway Secondary School in 1965 and then taught at City High School for two years before leaving for the UK.

I entered the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow) in 1968 and obtained a B.Sc. (Honours) in Biochemistry in 1972. I worked as an H.M. Customs Officer at Heathrow airport before coming to the Netherlands on a one year contract in 1974 and have been there ever since. I began my career in immunology on kidney transplantation research at the Primate Centre of the TNO health institutes where I worked for 5 years. This was followed by 2 years of immunological research on plant Viruses at the department of Biochemistry, University of Leiden. I obtained my doctorate (Ph.D.) in Tumour Immunology while working at the Experimental research unit of the department of General Surgery at the Erasmus University Medical Centrein Rotterdam and was the Assistant Professor/Head of Dermatology research department from 1985 until my retirement.

I have, since, been doing freelance work as a translator (Dutch into English) and Corrector of English scientific medical publications. I am married to Ria and we live in Gouda in theNetherlands.The ESS web-site brought back quite a few memories of friends and not to forget the teachers (a lot of whom are no longer with us!). Keep up the good work and my best wishes for the future!
