Children are known for their curiosity about the world and their continuous stream of “how” and “why” questions. Scientists, like Gils, never leave this phase and are driven to find answers to those questions. Gils graduated as a bio-engineer, but continues his career in medical sciences in the form of a doctorate. He focuses his research on arming the immune system with new equipment to fight cancer with the ultimate goal providing a curative therapy for all cancer patients.
